Fender has sold more guitars in 2020 than any other year in history

music news 11/09/2020

While COVID-19 stopped 2020 in it's tracks, it looks like it didn't have the same effect for Fender.

The guitar company announced that this year has in fact been its biggest year of sales ever.

Speaking with The New York Times, Fender chief executive Andy Mooney said he 'never would've thought' that the company 'would be where we are today if you asked me back in March'.

The rise in sales looks to be due to the fact that millions have been spending more time at home due to lockdowns and are deciding to spend their time learning how to play the guitar.

The company said they've been saving days of double-digital growth, e-commerce sales and beginner gear sales.

They went on to add that the Fender Play instructional app also saw its user base jump from 150,000 in late March to 930,000 as of late June.
