We felt like all you bassists out there needed some love this week, so we decided to showcase the Fender Rumble Series of bass combo amps. Grrrrowl! Even though these amps premiered in 2010, we think they hold up because they’re a great value for an amp with killer sound, durability, and a classic vintage look to boot. Fender Amp Specialist Jay Piccirillo stopped by Austin Bazaar and took us though the paces with the entire Rumble family, showing the wide range of tones you can get with the Rumble 15, 30, 75, 150, and 350. If your appetite for bass is not
…which is the fairest Acoustic of them all? Your acoustic guitar should fit like a glass slipper. But with all of the options out there, finding the right one can be a little daunting. Sometimes, you gotta kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince. Ok, so maybe we’re mixing up fairy tale metaphors a bit- but the Austin Bazaar crew is here to help! We recently made some videos to highlight two great acoustic options from the Fender family, whether you’re a beginner or just looking for a great second guitar for the road.

One of the (many) things we love about Fender is their commitment to making the dream of owning a Fender attainable for just about anyone, no matter what budget. The new FA-100 Acoustic Pack is a great example of this mission in action- you get everything you need to start playing acoustic guitar right away, including a gorgeous rich-sounding dreadnought-body guitar, padded gig bag, strap, clip-on tuner, and more! The FA-100 comes in Natural and also Austin Bazaar exclusive finishes Black and Sunburst. We think they make great gifts for the music fan in your life… even if that music fan is, well, YOU!
The Fender Custom Shop is a “dream factory” that has been around since 1987 creating spectacularly engineered instruments by ultimate Fender craftsmen. They are known worldwide for their custom creations, whether that’s putting together your dream instrument from scratch, or modifying an old beauty. We wanted to showcase the Fender Custom Shop guitars we currently have at our storefront in Austin, Texas. If you want a closer look, they will also be on display at the Dallas International Guitar Festival. Stop by the Austin Bazaar booth and take a peek at these custom electric guitars.

One of the reasons we love Fender is their commitment to welcoming new players into the family by introducing instruments that offer remarkable style, great sound, and performance, but still crazy affordability. Well, they’ve done it again with the new Modern Player series, which continues the “my first Fender” tradition with great modern features and unconventional takes on classic Fender instruments—and you still won’t break the bank. As an authorized Fender dealer, Austin Bazaar is proud to carry this amazing series; so let’s meet the family! On the guitar side, first we have the Modern Player Telecaster Plus HSS (in
Austin Bazaar is excited to carry Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers and Stratocaster Guitars by Fender. This is the first time in history that Fender has released an artist series amplifier—their artist series guitars have long been a hit with fans. The EC Twinolux, EC Tremolux and EC Vibro-Champ amps are variations on their original ’50s-era ancestors (the ’57 Twin, ’57 Deluxe and ’57 Champ). All three amps are built in the United States and produce some amazing tones and pulse. Meanwhile, you Slowhand fans will love the tonally versatile signature Eric Clapton Stratocaster guitar (available in Torino Red or Black), which includes a special soft V-shaped neck that rests perfectly in
For the last half-century, the electric guitar has been the most popular musical instrument on the market. From the days of Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly, to Kiss and AC/DC, to Nirvana and Metallica, the electric guitar has never gone out of fashion. We recognize this at Austin Bazaar. As a matter of fact, we’ve built our business around it. Year after year, the electric guitar is far and away our best-selling instrument, during the holidays in particular. Few gifts are more exciting than a shiny new electric guitar.

We’re excited to announce the arrival of the Old Growth Redwood Telecaster, the second in a series of 12 limited-edition Tele-bration guitars manufactured by Fender. The Tele-bration series marks the 60-year anniversary of the Telecaster guitar.

The 12 very special Tele-bration models stay inside the Telecaster’s famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument’s past,
