NAMM 2015: Fender 2015 Bluegrass Instruments Announced
The first instalment in the new line of bluegrass instruments is the Fender Roosevelt Resonator Guitar. With its hand-spun ''Continental'' cone, Flame Maple top and Mahogany body, the Fender Roosevelt Resonator delivers a rich, expressive tone perfect for soulful blues, country, bluegrass and Hawaiian music. Inspired by the golden age of Hollywood, this gorgeous Moonlight Black Burst finish resonator will take you back in time and spark your creativity.

Also new from Fender are 5 concert tone Banjos. The Concert Tone 54 offers the most affordable sound and style in the series. Quality features include a rolled steel tone ring, gloss-finish mahogany resonator with aged white binding and black trim, mahogany rim, gloss-finish mahogany neck, and “vintage nouveau'' acrylic white pearl inlay work with a “Concert Tone'' block inlay at the 18th fret.

With remarkable affordability, the Standard Concert Tone 55 Banjo offers many features found on more expensive banjos, such as a rolled brass tone ring, mahogany resonator with gloss sunburst finish and aged white binding with black trim, mahogany rim, Sunburst-finish mahogany neck, and “vintage nouveau'' acrylic white pearl inlay work with a “Concert Tone'' block inlay at the 18th fret.

For the more serious banjo player, the Deluxe Concert Tone 58 is a finely crafted model, with fantastic sound, feel and looks. Standout appointments include a striking flame maple resonator with a three-color Cherry Sunburst gloss finish and tortoiseshell binding, brass tone ring, satin-finish maple rim, three-piece maple/mahogany neck, vintage-style “nouveau acrylic'' white pearl and blue green abalone headstock inlay, and a special “Concert Tone'' block inlay at the 18th fret.

The Premium Concert Tone 59 tops the line with stylish pro-level features including a beautiful five-piece walnut/maple neck, brass tone ring, American black burl walnut resonator with a high-gloss natural finish, multicolored wood marquetry on the neck and resonator, vintage-style “nouveau acrylic” white pearl and blue green abalone headstock inlay, and a special “Concert Tone” block inlay at the 18th fret.
