Fender Doing China

Check out the almighty Fender

.

.

.

.

Everything looks ok ?

Well , i am the guy who will not go to a booth like this , because there’s already an exclusive distributor you-know-who in Msia .

What the heck am i doing here anyway ?

I wanted to see this …really ,

Fender , Made in China . 

Yeap , those guitars that you saw just now . Are all made in China . Going for 1999 RMB , approx RM1000 .

What a power step by Fender .

It raised so many questions -

“What will happen to Squier?” 

“What will happen to Fender Mexico?” 

“There is too little or NO price difference between a Squier and Fender China . Whats up ? What about old distributors who stock up TONS of Squiers at their warehouse?”

More pics for your to check out .

.

.

.

.

.

Just look at the Headstock …

Seriously , it looks like a Fender USA .

From far , it is not easy to tell the difference .

.

What is certain for sure , upcoming Strat copies brand such as – Farida , Jack and Danny are going to be damn worried about this .

The price difference between Fender China and a Farida Strat is not much .

What do you think ? Will you get one ?

    3rd last pics, why in the hell dat epi lp doing there?
    hahaha

  3. Ijau D. Koceng · October 20, 2011

    well, if there’s maple fretboard p-bass within same price range (around rm1k)… i’ll say “why not?”, it’s an ori fender anyway :)

  4. yus · October 20, 2011

    fender tak boleh tahan with the clones coming out from china..well if you can’t beat them,join them..haha

  5. gapnap · October 20, 2011

    @Jeremy . Yeah i did , it feels like a squier just as expected.

    @Noobaxe . Haha , salah parking kot .

    @Ijau. Yeah , don’t know when it will reach M’sia :)

    @Yus . You are right bro , this is Fender’s move to counter the fakes in China ..Don’t know is it a smart move or dumb move ..hehe

  6. Rikipu · October 20, 2011

    are they even making fender road worn relics in China now?

  7. Hafiz Azhar · October 20, 2011

    i definitely will get one!! @.@

  8. JL · October 20, 2011

    Not sure Bentley will be able to bring it in, if he does, i think he will stop taking Squier. Maybe like Fender Japan, Fender China can only sell in China

  9. luffy · October 20, 2011

    crafted by AXL guitar company?

    maybe they learn lesson from past, either from:
    1. japs lawsuit era. ‘if u cant beat them, join them’or;
    2. cbs era. lol

    for US, they want to strengthen custom shop line kot. make it more and more expensive

  10. mazlann zainol · October 20, 2011

    How is the sound difference? Any significant change? What is the comparison between MIJ/CIJ, MIM and CIC?

  11. jack · October 20, 2011

    well if the quality is the same as the tons of cheap quality but honest-to-god cheap priced strat copies already out there then there is no point. it’ll be like buying just for the brand. but if it is better, then i dont see why not.

  12. Axel95 · October 20, 2011

    i don’t think they r fender original. u noe how smart people r nowadays… hmm….

  13. jon · October 20, 2011

    Damn, if the quality is 80% of made in mexico fender, i’ll take 1 maple neck telecaster order from music master!

  14. ampz · October 20, 2011

    I wonder which artist will make a MIC signature model…hmmm. That will be interesting.

  15. gunhater · October 20, 2011

    now every company is worhisping china, from apple, mercedes, fender onwards, but what about integrity in making the products- in an environment where profit is god, can we trust the products? previous issues with china products:
    1. melamine tainted baby milk
    2. tainted dog food
    3. tainted children’s crayon exported to USA
    and of course the way a toddler was treated recently- people were more worried of getting sued rather than help a life…

  16. ariffdude · October 20, 2011

    I don’t like this. It’s like they’re selling out. They should leave the budget guitars to Squire in order to maintain the Fender quality in Fender guitars.

  17. yus · October 20, 2011

    its just decal job.people doing everywhere.

  18. cammo · October 20, 2011

    Thats a lovely top on that Epiphone.. what Fender..?
