Fender Musical Instruments Recalls Bass Amps for Fire Hazard

Aug 3, 2009 | Parker Waichman LLP

Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC), of Scottsdale, Arizona just issued a recall of about 90 SWR® Natural Blonde™ Acoustic Bass Amplifiers due to fire hazard the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.

The recall was implemented because the Fender SWR® Natural Blonde™ Acoustic Bass Amplifiers’ wiring can overheat, posing a fire hazard. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall involves the Fender SWR® Natural Blonde™ 120V acoustic bass amplifier, model 44-60600-000. The recalled Fender amplifier measures about 26 inches, by 16 inches, by 15 inches, and has a blonde-textured vinyl covering with a black control plate and black-stamped steel vibration-free grill. The model number is located on the top rear panel of the recalled Fender amplifier. “SWR” and “Natural Blonde” are printed on the front of the amplifier.

The recalled Fender SWR® Natural Blonde™ Acoustic Bass Amplifiers were manufactured in Mexico and were sold by authorized musical instrument retailers from April 2007 through May 2009 for about a MSRP (manufacturer’s suggested retail price) of $1,550.

The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the recalled amplifiers immediately and contact FMIC for a free inspection and repair. Fender is directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled bass amplifiers. FMIC can be reached toll-free at 1-800-856-9801 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Pacific Time, Monday through Friday; at the firm’s Web site at; or by email at
