Shawn Mendes designs new guitar


Shawn Mendes has created his own Fender guitar to raise funds for charity.

The In My Blood singer has teamed up with the axe men at Fender to craft a new floral-accented six-string, and all sales of the limited edition MusicMaster model will benefit his Shawn Mendes Foundation.

Mendes was inspired by a classic Fender design from 1965 as he came up with the new instrument, which features the Shawn Mendes Foundation logo engraved in the neck plate.

The guitar is intended for beginners, who want to learn how to play.

“I am so excited to release this guitar collaboration between Fender and The Shawn Mendes Foundation,” Mendes says in a statement. “I hope it inspires some of my fans to pick up and learn guitar for the first time, and give back while doing so.”
