Fender's New 'Channel-Bound' Fretboards

image: FMIC

Channel-Bound fingerboards are a feature of the new US produced Fender Select series instruments. Instead of binding, the fretboard seats into a channeled-out neck.

The Select series are production instruments incorporating many elements normally found with Custom Shop guitars & basses, including the price points, sadly... But hey, check 'em out. They look pretty sportin', and maybe they're consistent and great sounding as well.

And of course, Custom Shop pricing has jumped anyway, so ya gotta get the best guitar you can that fits the budget. Some things never change, right.

I guess the Select motto could be, "When You're Kinda Ready".
