A day at Fender
A few weeks back I got to go visit Fender in Phoenix AZ. I have been there many times and enjoy each visit. I truly believe they should call the company “My day job” because everyone seems to be a musician. (The receptionist isn’t a musician but she like musicians and it is nice to work at a place where the musicians have paying gigs.) Their lobby is really cool. I included a picture of me with some artwork. They used to have signed guitars on display in the lobby but apparently they got stolen. The still have signed guitars deep inside their building. I enjoy seeing a company where the employees so identify with their products and are proud of what they make. They have such a great gig going on making great amps. They make rock amps and jazz amps. They make jazzy rock amps and rocky jazz amps, mostly rock kinda jazzy amps, and all sorts of variations. Then they come up with some famous Jazz Artist’s (that is what jazz musicians call themselves Jazz Artists) signature amp that of course all the young musicians just have to buy. No wonder we have starving musicians, they are spending all their money on instruments. Seriously they understand and respect their audience and they are a joy to work with.
