'The Choice of Professional and Student Musicians Everywhere'

The 1964 1965 Fender catalogue featured Fenders guitars basses and amps of that time: old favourites like the Fender Telecaster, Stratocaster, Jazzmaster and Esquire are joined for the first time by the Fender Mustang. New amplifiers include the Vibrolux/Reverb and Princeton Reverb.

Two color, eight pages, 10 7/8" x 8 1/4".

1964 Down Beat magazine - annual guitar issue - Wes Montgomery cover

This 'brochure' is actually the center pages of the 1965 'annual guitar issue' of music magazine Down Beat (July 16th, 1964; Wes Montgomery cover) - check ebay for back issues. Fender had placed similar catalogs in Down Beat over previous years. Interestingly, this brochure speaks of a shift in how Fender was placing itself in the guitar market. The previous year's insert (1963) was in the annual 'school music issue' - clearly aimed more at student players than professionals.

Fender included a longer brochure still, the following year - running at twelve pages. See the 1965 Fender catalog.
