Great deals on musical instruments

Rising star Ana Popovic has said her Fender Stratocaster electric guitar is a fantastic tool for allowing her to express herself on stage.

Speaking to Guitar Player, the musician revealed that she makes use of a '64 Strat which "responds to every nuance of my playing".

In comments reported by the official Fender blog FrontRow, she added that her musical instrument "feels alive" to her.

"It captures my various moods and energies onstage the way no other instrument I've ever had can touch," Popovic explained.

She added that it is possible for her to come up with ten distinct tones using the electric guitar, which she achieves by tweaking the controls and mixing up her playing style.

The musician stated that when she wants to achieve a jazz style, she will use the middle pickup to get the cleanest sound.

Popovic has a busy 2011 ahead of her, with the Serbian-born singer-songwriter set to embark on a tour of the US at the end of the month.

She also has gigs lined up in France, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland over the course of the rest of the year.
