    These guitars really are Fender at the top of their game. Each one of them is a very special instrument.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Tangerine sounds pretty cool!
    You're in my sight, but there's a mist on my lens!
