Fender receives coolest stand award

Electric guitar manufacturer Fender has won MusicRadar's prize for having the coolest stand at this year's NAMM 2009 instrument showcase.

The publication stated that it might be unfair to give the accolade to Fender, given that it is able to afford bigger and flashier items than smaller musical instrument firms, but the stand was so good that it decided to give it the award anyway.

"Cool guitars, cool decoration, cool music, cool lighting … more cool guitars - there was even a pickup truck the size of a small elephant loaded with Fender gear," MusicRadar said.

Among the electric guitars on display was a new Dave Gilmour signature Fender Stratocaster and a Fender Telecaster Bass/P-Bass hybrid.

According to its official blog, Fender attracted a large number of music stars to its 2009 kickoff event, including Motley Crue guitarist Mick Mars and Yngwie Malmsteen, who both signed autographs for fans in attendance.
