First Look: Fender Gold Foil Jazzmaster
The gold covers may hide mini humbuckers, but this Jazzmaster still dishes as much musical substance as style.
Inspired by the garage rock bands of the sixties and the cult classic guitars they played, the Gold Foil Collection combines timeless Fender designs with the dazzling style of a bygone era.
The Gold Foil Jazzmaster comes equipped with a bound ebony fingerboard, pearloid block inlays, mahogany body, Bigsby B50 vibrato and three Gold Foil mini-humbuckers. Other features include a matching painted headstock, vintage-style tuners with white buttons, 21 Narrow Tall frets and a Fender Jaguar-inspired switch plate.
Long on looks and aces in the tone department, the Fender Gold Foil Collection combines the enduring charm of midcentury mail-order guitars with the style and playability of an authentic Fender.
Paoletti Guitars | NAMM 2022
Watch how a very long legacy of Italian winemaking informed the design of a pair of new guitars.
What makes a Paoletti guitar unique is the careful selection and use of aged chestnut woods, preserved and reclaimed from our 130+ year old wine barrels. The vibrations that a chestnut body generates is one of a kind in frequency, harmony, and offers tonal sustain across the full harmonic spectrum.
Here is a Paoletti Stratospheric Loft HH - Heavy Deep Blue equipped with Roasted Maple, Tremolo Bridge and Paoletti OEM hardware. Designed by Darrell Braun.
Godin Guitars | NAMM 2022
The company celebrates their 50th anniversary with a signature model from a Canadian rock legend and a powerhouse HSS-loaded double cutaway.
Session R-HT Pro
At first glance — with its reversed headstock, fixed bridge, and iconic PAF Humbucker — you might assume that the Godin Session R-HT PRO is only suited for flat-out rock or metal! However, at Godin, we are passionate about designing versatile guitars that can produce the sounds that fit a player’s musical style in the moment!
To achieve this in the Session R-HT PRO, we chose the Custom Custom Seymour Duncan SH-11 pickup for the bridge, and two Lace Sensor Hot Gold pickups for the middle and neck. The combination of these three excellent “made-in-the-USA” pickups, together with a 5-way switch, volume and tone, gives this guitar a massive tonal range. Do you need a powerful, warm distortion but also a bright, open sound for arpeggio playing? The Godin Session R-HT PRO can take on either of these sounds with ease! In fact, you can play this guitar in all situations and musical styles, whether in the studio or on stage.
Made entirely in Canada, the Godin Session R-HT PRO features a basswood body and hard maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Our “acoustically tuned” matte finish and the use of a fixed bridge with through holes allows the strings to vibrate more freely, improving both the sustain and natural resonance of the guitar. To top it all off, the headstock features our “vintage” Godin logo.
The Godin Session R-HT PRO — a guitar that absolutely “rocks”… but not only!
