One of the new guitars Fender introduced at this year’s NAMM show is the Sergio Vallin Signature guitar, which is an interesting take on offset guitars. Here is Fender’s description of the guitar:
Electrifying Mexican quartet Maná is the world’s biggest Latin rock band, thanks in no small part to the masterful guitar work of Sergio Vallín. Fender and Vallín have now collaborated closely on the Sergio Vallín Signature guitar model, one of the most distinctive instruments in the Fender Artist series. With a brand-new offset body shape, tonally versatile HSS pickup layout with special switching, and other special appointments, it’s a bold new Fender design loaded with pure Vallín sound, personality and playability.
I’m not sure about the rotary dial pickup switching, but I think the guitar looks interesting and shows that there’s still room for modern designs that evoke the guitars of the past. The guitar will be available in mid-February in Olympic White, Black, Sunburst, and Hot Rod Red.
