Fender Select

Unveiled at the recent NAMM 2012, these top of the line Fender Select guitars are the culmination of Fender's more than 60 years worth of guitar making experience. The Fender Select series includes five new guitars and two new Fender Select Bass guitars which are designed with a combination of traditional methods and high end features.

With Fender Select, you have a choice of figured tops, fine tone woods, unique finishes, quartersawn or figured maple necks, specially voiced Fender Select pickups and many other premium features. The series also employs the Bi-Flex truss rod system which helps with stability, and the no-load tone control facility that delivers the uncolored tone of the bridge pickup even when dimmed. Fender Select currently stands as Fender's finest guitar production series, and is stamped with a rear headstock Fender Select medallion. Here are the five new Fender Select Guitars along with their manufacturer suggested price:
