What’s Larry’s Lab?  Fender’s CEO Larry Thomas is a guitar guy.  It’s obvious when you talk to him the passion that he has for the history of the brand.  The visions he has for the future of the products are on display in Larry’s Lab, a very special room we were ushered into at NAMM 2012.  The guitars in this room have been commsioned by Larry to push the envelope.  They run the gamut from wild design studies to familiar Fender shapes with new manufacturing techniques under the hood.  These are all one-off prototypes; we got authorization from Larry himself to show them to you here.  

We don’t have a lot of technical specs on this one, but it’s obviously a wild design exercise.  The Samurai looks ready to do battle!  We like seeing that Fender is pushing the design language in different directions.
