In sixth grade I had a band called The Blueberry Waterf

In sixth grade I had a band called The Blueberry Waterfall. I had borrowed a guy’s Fender Jaguar and Boss Tone Fuzz, which you plugged straight into a Blackface Twin. It was a little power trio – we were actually pretty good for our age.
Steve Lukather
Playing a Fender is an art itself. They’re always going out of tune.

I generally use a lot of analog instruments, a few synths from the ’80s like the Roland Juno-106, and an old Fender bullet guitar.
Gus Dapperton
In 1977, I had Paul Rivera hotrod six Fender Deluxes for me. At that time, a lot of studio guys in L.A. were using those – not so much live guys but studio guys. They had terrific tone and great technique, and I was like, ‘Well, I like having terrific tone even though I don’t have any technique.’
Rick Nielsen
I really like the Budda head with a big Orange cabinet with Celestion 30 speakers and my ’63 Fender Telecaster.

Out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. They’re cheap and totally inefficient, and they sound like crap and are very small.
Kurt Cobain
I like guitars in the Fender style because they have skinny necks.

Malcolm-Jamal Warner
I have an electric Fender and a Telecaster. I have a Taylor and a Martin. I want to get more guitars for more sounds.
Ross Lynch
I’ve been called a point guard, I’ve been called a traffic cop, I’ve been called a ringmaster, a lion tamer, whatever. And I guess the thing about the traffic cop is I’m more of a rogue traffic cop because a good traffic cop doesn’t want any fender benders.
Ernie Johnson Jr.
The Fender Precision is my instrument, my beloved Precisions.
Steve Harris
I love the sound of a Fender Rhodes or James Jamerson-style bass lines that are their own melody, and live drums and Moogs.
Corinne Bailey Rae
I love my Fender Rhodes. It’s been a part of my family since that keyboard came out, and I’ve had it reworked so that it’s in the best condition it’s actually ever been in. That is my baby.
Flying Lotus
I’m left-handed, and it’s not very easy to find reasonably priced, high-quality left-handed guitars. But out of all the guitars in the whole world, the Fender Mustang is my favorite. I’ve only owned two of them.
Kurt Cobain
When I first played the guitar without plugging it into an amplifier, the people at Fender were blown away. They couldn’t believe the sound. I said, ‘See, gentlemen, the world is no longer flat.’
Dick Dale
I got my first real bass guitar in my hands when I was 14 – a 1957 Fender Precision, which is still hanging on the wall in my front room. I loved the heaviness of it and the feel of the wood. I still do.
Suzi Quatro
One of the key guitars in my career has been an early-Seventies Fender Telecaster Deluxe that I had before Sonic Youth started and that I played pretty much throughout Sonic Youth.
Lee Ranaldo
I come from a big family of musicians, so I was lucky enough to grow up with guitars all around the house. Even though I didn’t really know much at the time, my brother had a Les Paul Goldtop, and my dad always had this Fender or some bizarre Pedulla-Orsini guitar.
Nuno Bettencourt
I met Leo Fender, who is the guru of all amplifiers, and he gave me a Stratocaster. He became a second father to me.
Dick Dale
Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been a Fender connoisseur. And to have my name associated with greatness like that, it’s amazing. I couldn’t be more proud of anything. My children, and then being associated with Fender. In that order!
John 5
I go through about two Fender mediums a night because I don’t pick straight down; it’s sort of sideways, and it shaves them off.

I was not a great guitarist, so I sold my 1960 Fender Stratocaster in exchange for a Shure Microphone, made in Chicago, and a flute.
Ian Anderson
I’ve got a Fender Concert amp from the ’60s, the one Joe Osborn used. He played his bass through it.
Johnny Rivers
With longevity comes, ‘Nothing is going to kill me; I cannot irreparably damage my career.’ Those days are over. The most I can sustain are fender benders.
Holly Hunter
The Les Paul was more challenging because of the weight of it, but the tone was there that the Fender will never have and vice versa. So you have to make a decision as to what you’re going to have as your main instrument. After seeing Hendrix, I thought, ‘I’ll stick with the ‘Strat.’
Jeff Beck
One day, I was just fingering around on the keys of a Fender Rhodes piano, and I came up with this little riff, and all of a sudden, it morphed into a song. It had never been touched by a guitar, which was very weird for us. ‘Under the Ground’ is the first song I have ever written that had nothing to do with the guitar.
Brian Fallon
I guess everybody saw it. It’s a deal where I’d been racing cars a long time and I knew going around the track the fender was on the tire hard.

I play a Fender Jazzmaster and three stacks and a combo, two old Marshall Plexis and a Hiwatt combo and a Hiwatt combo with Marshall cabs.
J Mascis
The first guitar I ever picked up was an acoustic black Fender, so it makes perfect sense that Elias plays Fender guitars. As far as details, it’s simple; Elias and Fender have a great relationship.
My guitar is a mutation between a classic Fender Strato

My guitar is a mutation between a classic Fender Stratocaster guitar, which I played for years, and a Gibson solid-body like an SG or a Les Paul. It contains all sounds of the basic classic rock n’ roll guitars. It does what I want it to do.
Jerry Garcia
I was playing a Fender Telecaster when I first joined.
Lindsey Buckingham
