Fender At The Music Zoo
The Music Zoo is an Authorized Fender Dealer! Shop for your Fender Guitar on our site now, or visit our showroom on Long Island, New York! Ever since being founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender in Fullerton, California - the company has bloomed into a worldwide presence, whose name is synonymous with the word ‘guitar.’
Originally a repairman for all thing’s electronics, Leo Fender saw musicians needs for dependable instruments as well as adequate amplification, and having an inventor’s mind – he wanted to give us musical solutions! Thus, instruments starting with the Broadcaster and Precision Bass in 1950 and 1951 respectively have changed the world. Fender started the Rock and Roll revolution with the worlds first mass-produced solidbody electric guitars, with their genius, easy to manufacture and easy to repair bolt-on designs!
For Fender, lightning struck more than twice with the introduction of the Stratocaster in 1954. With its double-cutaway, contoured body and three single-coil pickups, the Strat must have looked like a space ship in 1954, and we wish we were there to see its introduction! The list of players who are closely associated with the Stratocaster is mind-boggling; Buddy Holly, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, David Gilmour, Stevie Ray Vaughn, up to modern players such as John Frusciante, John Mayer, Yngwie Malmsteen, Billy Corgan and more! The list never ends, because the musical possibilities on a Stratocaster never end!
Today, you can’t step into a music club or see a picture of a band onstage without seeing the Fender logo. Fender amplifiers such as the Twin, Blues Deluxe, Blues Junior, Hot Rod Deluxe and Mustang GT are used as go-to amplifiers on stage and in recording studios. Series such as the American Player and California Series are super fun instruments that not only are affordable, but offer classic Fender tones to up and coming musicians. For the pros – the American Elite and American Professional models offer Custom Shop-level pickups and gorgeous finish options. Looking for a versatile guitar that can cover both acoustic and electric tones on stage? Pick up a new Acoustasonic Telecaster, with amazing electronics and a revolutionary body design that blends the best of both worlds.
