Bass amplifiers recalled by Fender Musical Instruments due to fire hazard

In co-operation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Fender Musical Instruments Corp. of Scottsdale, Ariz., is voluntarily recalling some bass amplifiers because of a potential fire hazard.

The recall affects about 90 units. The amplifier's wiring can overheat, posing a fire hazard, the commission said. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall involves the SWR® Natural Blonde™ 120V acoustic bass amplifier, model 44-60600-000. The amplifier measures about 26 inches x 16 inches x 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 amplifier. “SWR” and “Natural Blonde” are printed on the front of the amplifier.

The amplifiers were sold by authorized musical instrument retailers from April 2007 through May 2009 for about $1,550 US.

Consumers should 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.
