From the nail scratch on the front of the lower horn to the soldering iron burn near the output jack and chipped nut, this guitar is visually and sonically comparable to Campbell's trusty companion.

Scottsdale, AZ (November 5, 2015) -- The Fender Custom Shop is proud to introduce the Mike Campbell Limited Edition "Heartbreaker" Guitar. Meticulously reproduced by the team of Dream Makers at the Custom Shop, led by Master Builder Dale Wilson, this guitar is nearly indistinguishable from the original.

The guitar will provide players with Campbell’s years of loving use to experience for their own. From the nail scratch on the front of the lower horn to the soldering iron burn near the output jack and chipped nut, this guitar is visually and sonically comparable to Campbell's trusty companion. This historic collectible is available in extremely limited quantities, and each will include a small number of Mike Campbell's personal guitar picks.

In addition to the release of the guitar, artist funds from the limited edition reproduction will go to Tazzy Animal Rescue Fund - a nonprofit organization that is close to both Mike Campbell and his wife. The organization operates as a full functioning animal rescue and works to provide homes for those animals in need.

"It's a notable cause and if you want to buy one of these guitars not only do you get a great guitar, but you are literally saving lives of dogs," said Campbell.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.

Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
