Fender Workshop: Learn the benefits of an Ebony fretboard

Full article is written and owned by Fender, the link right here.

For years, Fender has applied ebony fingerboards to the popular Jim Root Jazzmaster, Stratocaster and Telecaster.

So when CITES laws regulating how rosewood is traded internationally came into effect on Jan. 2, 2017, it wasn’t a difficult decision as to what to apply to the American Elite Series as a replacement.

Get Educated on the Deluxe Big Muff!

Bill Ruppert shows you how to re-create many of the vintage Big Muff sounds heard thru the years with the modern Deluxe Big Muff Pi. The effects maven describes the Deluxe Big Muff as his "hands down favorite Big Muff" and shows you how it's done. 

Worth a watch, because as you quest for the perfect fuzzy tone, your friendly Mantova's salesman can point you in the right direction!

(SPECS FROM ELECTRO-HARMONIX)

-Four-knob design provides excellent control and gives the user the ability to precisely shape their instrument’s dynamics.

-The Sustain knob controls the amount of compression applied to the guitar signal.

-The Attack know adjusts how quickly the compressor recovers. As Attack is turned clockwise the pedal’s response is slower and more initial pick attack comes thru.

-The Blend knob adjusts the mix of the dry and compressed signals.

-Volume controls the overall output level.
