June 24 was such an exciting day!
Not only did Rosli find himself in the presence of several wonderful Fender custom-made guitars, he also had the opportunity to meet the Fender guys who came all the way from USA for the roadshow.
From L to R: Joe Reynoso (Director of Global Sales, FMIC Custom Shop), Rosli, Justin Norvell (VP of Product Development), Paul Waller (Master Builder)
Meeting the guys was one thing, but the crème de la crème was Rosli getting to play on the Jeff Beck signature strat, since Jeff Beck is one of his major influences in music. Rosli also had the honour to play on the Master Design Strat.
Rosli got to play two songs from his Deeper Than Purple album, ‘Last Man Standing’ & ‘Sorry I’m Late’ to a packed theatre at The Substation. And Rosli has this to say about the event.
“I’m very happy and proud to be part of the Fender Custom Shop Roadshow yesterday. It is not just a story about music history but about American history.
Every piece that comes from Fender, from the entry level range all the way to the Masterbuilder models, is a product of the artistry of the human mind and it has redefined the sounds we hear.”
Rosli’s expression said it all…
Rosli had a blast at the event and we hope those of you who went had enjoyed yourselves too! For more images of the event, follow the link here.
