Update: Feb 23, 2021: FENDER 75 YEARS by author DAVE HUNTER.

Ubiquitous in the music world, Fender guitars and amplifiers are also icons in popular culture, their shapes and sounds instantly recognizable. Authoritatively written and lavishly illustrated, Fender 75 Years is the officially licensed anniversary celebration of the company and its legendary instruments. From Fender’s first instrument—a lap steel guitar produced in 1946—to founder Leo Fender’s groundbreaking early six-string “Spanish-style” guitar designs like the Esquire that set the standard for the electric guitar explosion to follow, author Dave Hunter traces Fender’s entire history to the present. All the innovations and landmark models are here, as well as legendary players who became synonymous with Fender instruments across musical genres. In addition to the instantly recognizable Telecaster and Stratocaster, Hunter examines Fender’s line of legendary offset guitars like the Mustang, Jazzmaster, and Jaguar, and bygone models such as the Marauder, Coronado, Bronco, and more. The Jazz Bass and Precision Bass also feature, as do Fender’s acoustic guitars and workhorse tube amplifiers like the Bassman, Twin Reverb, and Princeton, to name a few. Along the way, readers will get in-depth scoops on the relationships dozens of players have enjoyed with Fender: rock ’n’ roll pioneers like Hank Marvin and James Burton; classic-rock icons like Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, and Eric Clapton; blues legends Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Buddy Guy; alt-rock gods J Mascis and Kurt Cobain…the list goes on. In addition, Hunter explores the work of the award-winning Fender Custom Shop and the wares produced there. Illustrated throughout with rare images from company archives, Fender 75 Years treats readers to rare behind-the- scenes views of the shop floor throughout the years, as well as studio imagery of the guitars, rare period advertising and brochures, and performance images of Fender players. It’s the definitive look at the Fender’s first three-quarters of a century and a must-have for any guitar enthusiast. Dave Hunter is an author, musician, and journalist. He is the author of several popular books about guitars, amps, and effects, including Voyageur Press's Star Guitars, The Fender Stratocaster, The Gibson Les Paul, and 365 Guitars, Amps & Effects You Must Play. A regular contributor to Guitar Player and Vintage Guitar magazines, he resides in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Update: Feb 22, 2021: Peavey introduce mini Invective Head .mp4

News out of MERIDIAN, MS  Peavey Electronics® proves that good things do come in small packages in their second collaboration with Periphery guitarist, Misha Mansoor. The new invective™ MH amplifier packs all of the best tones from the 120 W big brother into a much more portable and proven 20 W MH head format. At the heart of this little monster is a pair of EL84 power tubes shaped by three 12AX7/ECC83 preamp tubes, providing everything from clean pristine tones to the chunky gated distortion.The onboard Tube Status Indication circuit helps the user diagnose a problem with the power tubes and the bias adjustment pot is located on the top of the small, rugged chassis. Additionally, foot switches allow the invective MH to engage or disengage the Tight voicing and any combination of Gate and Boost on the Lead channel, respectively. There’s also an independently foot-switchable buffered effects loop.AND don’t be deceived by the size or format of the invective MH. No matter the venue, this mini amplifier has plenty of oomph for small-to-medium sized gigs and can even work as a backline stage monitor with its attenuator switch directing power at 20 W, 5 W, or 1 W to suit the need.On the clean channel, adaptive low and high EQ help find the sweet spot with ease. The lead channel provides a three-band EQ and the Master Resonance and Master Presence pots help shape the tone. In addition to its new sounds, the invective MH has all of the recording hooks and flexibility of the other Peavey MH amplifiers, including Microphone Simulated Direct Interface Output with XLR and ground lift switch, speaker-simulated USB, speaker defeat switch, power attenuator, headphone out, and more.
