    I recently went to the Fender website, www.fender.com, to see that they had added a
    "Jackson Guitars" section to their gear menu, leading me to believe that Fender had bought Jackson.
    Today I went back to the site only to see a GRETSCH GUITARS banner.

    Does anybody else find this kind of wierd, that Fender has been going on a "spending spree"?

    Who's next, maybe Gibson? ;) :rolleyes:
     
  2. Maybe Fender and Bill Gates will join forces... :eek:


    :D
     
  3. Does this mean in the middle of a gig, my Precision will turn blue and stop working?
     
  4. More likely your digital pedals, surely............
     
  5. Fender & Gates are going to take over the world!


    WE'RE DOOMED!!! :eek:

    :)
     
  6. LOL, nice one Rabbid_Granny !!!

    Don't worry too much, post-Microsoft Fenders will come with a reset button ... :D

    And a start button that you have to push to turn the bugger off.
     
  8. I hate that!


    Maybe Fender will start dressing all in black and starting the "New Liberation Fender Army" complete with the "Death Strato" a guitar so powerful it can engulf an entire club in chaos and destruction.

  10. LOL, yea, gotta update your preamp/tone controls every month to keep up with 'technology' when they are ACTUALLY plaanting cameras and things in there, to see when you are playing covers, without paying!!
