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 ?

  1. Got a chance to test one?

  2. 3rd last pics, why in the hell dat epi lp doing there?
    hahaha

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

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

  7. i definitely will get one!! @.@

  8. 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. 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

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

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

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

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

  15. 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. 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. its just decal job.people doing everywhere.

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

  19. just bring it,save muhah!
