NAMM 2021: New Fender Noventa Series, American Ultra Luxe guitars and Vintage amps
Fender charges into 2021 with new guitars and amps, revamping Squier and American Ultra series
The guitar community is abuzz with news that Fender is about to launch a new guitar series, artist signature models, Diamond anniversary guitars and ’68 Custom amplifiers – as well as updates to the American Ultra range. And if that wasn’t enough, the Squier range is getting a boost with some striking Contemporary models. Phew! Click on the links below for more.
Fender’s new Noventa Series is all about the P90s
Made in Mexico, the reasonably priced Noventa series adds P90 pickups to the Stratocaster and Telecaster. The Tele model, in particular, impressed us with its super-clean layout, single P90 and some nice finishes. What about the Jazzmaster? Fender has dumped three in there for even more chewy 90 goodness.
Fender American Ultra Luxe Telecasters and Stratocasters
At NAMM 2021, Fender has given fans of its American Ultra Series something to rave about. Among the most eye-catching new guitars added to this premium Fender range are a Luxe Stratocaster Floyd Rose HSS in Silverburst or Red Plasma Burst, as well as a Luxe Telecaster Floyd Rose HH in Mystic Black.
Fender 75th Diamond Anniversary Guitars
As Fender is celebrating its 75th birthday this year, it would be silly not to expect a limited edition release marking the occasion. Fender has chosen to produce two different runs here, a pricier version in 2-tone Bourbon Burst with gold hardware and a more affordable series made in Mexico featuring a satin Silver finish. The Bourbon Burst Tele certainly caught our eye…
Fender ’68 Custom Amplifiers and Mustang Micro headphone amp
Fender has announced three new amps that will be part of its releases for 2021. This includes two tube amps that will join the company’s popular ’68 Custom series, the ‘68 Custom Pro Reverb, the ‘68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb, and the Mustang Micro headphone amp.

A traditional Jazzmaster does not have P90 pickups. Jazzmaster pickups are different than P90s. Just thought I’d point that out, as your blurb on the Noventa series indicates P90s on a JM is normal.
You’re absolutely right, I’ve amended the text. Thanks for pointing that out!
You bet, thanks for summing up the Fender news.
I love the P90 sound! Did the original JM have P100’s?
