John Severson designing surf guitars for Fender, debuting at The Laguna Surf Gallery
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 3 September, 2008 : - - Fender said, 'Surf it!' I waited 40 years for that call. I was impressed with Johnny Fain surf guitaring in an ad for Surfer and always wondered how hard it would be. So I 'test drove' the Surf Fever model on Maui on some smooth glassy walls.
As I took off, I swung the guitar around from my back, right into a major chord position playing my Dick Dale favorites. Duck dives and rolls resulted in some interesting horse collar wipeouts. I chased the guitar to the rocks--luckily it¹s a floater. I highly recommend it, but without the amp. One more thing you can do at 74.
