NAMM 2013: Fender launch Two Unusual Additions to their Range

Fender's new Mando-Strat Electric Mandolin
NAMM 2013: Fender have made two unusual additions to their range: the Mando-Strat and the Reso-Tele.

The Mando-Strat is an updated version of the classic Fender electric mandolin, a diminutive instrument with a distinctive shape and a chiming tone.

It features a solid alder body, a maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard, and a vintage-style bridge with chrome plate made on the actual machine used to produce the orginal parts half a century ago.

The Reso-Tele is a resonator version of a Telecaster guitar, complete with a Telecaster neck pickup and a Fishman Powerchip under-saddle pickup.

The hand-spun cone crafted in Eastern Europe gives the instrument a rich, resonator tone.

Both of these instruments are ideal for anyone looking for something a little more unusual to add to their collection.
