Why Play Acoustic?

If you want to be able to pick up your instrument and play any time, anywhere, without the need for any accessories or amplification, an acoustic guitar is the way to go.

A Few Reasons to Go Acoustic

  • Lightweight and portable
  • Helps build hand strength and stamina
  • Great for strumming or fingerpicking
  • The quintessential campfire companion

Why Play Electric?

If you like the idea of being able to experiment with a variety of sounds and effects, or just want to plug in and make a whole lot of noise, you should pick up an electric guitar.

A Few Reasons to Go Electric

  • Offers more versatility than other instruments
  • Lighter strings and slimmer necks make playing easier on fingers and hands
  • Great for strumming or playing leads
  • Offers more colorful options than acoustic

STRATOCASTER® (Strat®)

The follow-up to the Telecaster in 1954, the Stratocaster remains one of the most iconic guitars of all time. Its contoured body and double cutaway design (one on each side of the neck) make it easier to reach the higher frets and explore a new range of sounds, while its synchronized tremolo (or “whammy bar”) lets you bend strings more easily.

TELECASTER® (Tele®)

The one that started it all. The Telecaster was the world’s first mass-produced solid-body electric guitar and changed the way music was made forever. From country twang to rock ‘n’ roll roar, the Tele sound has been prized by countless legendary artists for over 70 years.

Why Play Bass?

If you want to set the groove and play those low, driving notes you've heard on your favorite songs, bass is for you.

A Few Reasons to Go Bass

  • Played in almost every genre of music
  • Fender invented the electric bass in 1951
  • You can pluck it, pick it or slap it

Concert

The concert ukulele scale is about an inch longer, the neck is a bit wider and overall it's a little heavier than the soprano. The bigger size gives you a fuller, warmer sound that’s great for backing up a singer. Our concert ukulele is available in iconic Fender designs with the Fullerton series.
