Please join me in Larry’s Lab! Yes – Mr. Larry Thomas, CEO of Fender Musical Instrument Corporation invited me to his private viewing room, called Larry’s Lab. In this video, Mr. Thomas walks us through their brand new ‘Patent Applied For’ Channeled Neck design, new for 2013! As Mr. Thomas explains : Channeled Neck design has the rosewood fingerboard ‘INLAID” into the neck – not glued, giving you a new look & feel in guitars. This was an idea that was born from the shop (designer, Fred, as mentioned in the video), and what was once an idea is now a reality! You see this on the carved top Jazz Master, and it’s also available on Select Line Stratocasters. Other guitars in the video – Hard Tail Stratocaster w/ Maple and Walnut trim (beautiful looking guitars!!) and BLOOD-WOOD necks, versus traditional Rosewood! Special thanks to Mr. Thomas for making the time. It was a privilege. Thank you.
