The Artist series puts the essence of true musical collaboration in the hands of players and fans, with instruments that bear the names of the world’s most influential guitarists and bassists.
ALL-NEW SILHOUETTE WITH LATIN FLAVOR
Electrifying Mexican quartet Maná is the world’s biggest Latin rock band, thanks in no small part to the masterful guitar work of Sergio Vallín. Fender and Vallín have now collaborated closely on the Sergio Vallín Signature guitar model, one of the most distinctive instruments in the Fender Artist series. With a brand-new offset body shape, tonally versatile HSS pickup layout with special switching, and other special appointments, it’s a bold new Fender design loaded with pure Vallín sound, personality and playability.

FSV PICKUP COMBINATION
A powerful combination of single-coil middle and neck pickups and humbucking bridge pickup not only offers a wide range of tones, but also serves as a testament to the meticulous efforts in recreating Vallin's beefy rock sound.
FIVE-WAY ROTARY SWITCHING
The guitar's five-way rotary switch offers convenient and versatile pickup switching and blending options, along with a subtle dose of sleek style.
ALL-NEW OFFSET BODY SHAPE
This brand-new offset body shape—beautifully sculpted with the input of Vallin in mind—has a balanced, streamlined look that offers easy access to the upper registers.

A push-pull switch discretely hidden in the volume knob can be activated to bypass the volume and pickup switch, allowing for direct routing and higher output.
True to Vallin's unique musical and personal style, the guitar boasts a bevy of distinctive appointments, including a decorative chrome plate under the bridge, headstock signature and no back plate.
