Fender has spent more than a half century establishing themselves as one of the premier producers of stringed instruments and amplifiers, but these Fender Custom Shop “Old Ironside” Amps will blow you out of the water. In case you’re not familiar with “Old Ironsides,” that’s the nickname bestowed upon the world’s oldest commissioned warship, the U.S.S. Constitution. In 2011, construction crews in Boston’s former Charleston Naval Yard unearthed a stockpile of centuries-old oak beams used in tall ship construction and repair. You see where this is going. Fender acquired a small amount of that wood and turned it over to Master Builder Shawn Greene to create the two most stunning guitar amps we’ve ever seen. Two tube amps, one based on the classic ’57 Pro and one on the ’57 Champ, were made out of the oak and decked out in several nautical touches like a dock-cleat handle, brass accents and a hand-rubbed oil finish. Both amps will be available at the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
