    Just got it first hand from his facebook page, Chris Fleming is moving on from Fender...

    A list of his duties while at Fender...

    Guitar builder, Master Builder apprentice, Guild Electric Electric Guitar Supervisor, Guild Acoustic Guitar Production Coordinator, Master Builder, Senior Master Builder, Jackson Custom Shop Manager, Guitar R&D Project Manager, Director of Fender Guitar R&D, Director of Specialty Brand R&D, Chief Engineer guitar R&D.

    This is VERY interesting as I always assumed he'd retire from Fender... I sent him a messaging asking what's next... he said "Stay tuned"

    Interesting when you look at the recent firing of Eldred and the severing of relations in Japan.... things are happening over at Fender, and they don't sound too good.

  2. One of the best decisions Leo Fender made was leaving. He took Fender as far as he needed and started 2 great companies after, I am sure Chris has some great ideas.
