    The Legendarily Bizarre 1976 Fender Catalog

    Been a big fan of Fender's incredibly bizarre mythology themed 1976 catalog for a long time. Never seen high res scans, but a sci-fi artwork site recently uploaded them. It's an ultra-cool bit of obscura because not only is it batshit insane, Fender themselves commissioned the art, thought this was a good idea.

    So in case anyone else is into the "inhumanly hot licks", here they are.







    Feel free to guess the amount of drugs this took to make, or ponder why guitar catalogs have stopped featuring hookah smoking catepillars or wonder if the fact the Starcaster never made it as a model is due to the bizarre fantasy roll out.

    Id guess at least 2 drops of liquid LSD per drawing session ? Give or take a drop depending on strength and user tollerance...... not that I know about that.

    No amount of hallucinogens could make the Starcaster look appealing.

    I dunno, I kinda dig them.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    I remember seeing those used as ads in old issues of Guitar Player Magazine. Always thought they were killer.

    LOTS of killer albums released that year. Just look at this list.
