so i'm donig a project for a world issues class.. I have to investigate a company (any company) and research all about it. the company also has to have some conflicts or problems in its past, whether it is with scandals or w/e..
any ideas will be appreciated.
How about Fender? Plenty to talk about with the CBS years, the increasing cost of labour in the States (and hence the lower cost in the far east, leading to the Squier sub-brand), the availability of materials (the push towards woods from sustainable forests), and new designs to keep ahead of the game.
My gear;

Custom HSS Strat (eBay'ed parts)
Fender Acoustic
EH Big Muff
Home-made Wah
Home-made Booster
Laney LC15
