Don Randal and the real Fender Story
« on: November 08, 2018, 10:36:54 AM »
Just read Don Randals story on Reveb.com. He was the other principal owner of Fender with Leo Fender. Later he started Randal Amplification.   

The other stories about Leo’s partners were actual workers not principal owners.  He also named the guitars except the precision bass.  It was named precision because it had frets. 

 Don was the business sales end. Leo was the tinkering end,  but Don had a lot todo with the gear by making Leo build what customers wanted.

If your on Reverb.com,  read the Don Randal interview.

Reverb.com has some pretty great content. Surprisingly good considering the business they are in.
Definitely a good place to buy and sell gear too. Low fees.

Your link is bad, by the way.
This takes you right there:
