Fargen is pleased to announce the all new JW-40 Jim Weider signature tube amp.
Jim Weider, a master of classic telecaster guitar, is renowned for his rock and blues-based signature sound. He is among a select group of musicians with an endorsement from Fender and, for the past three decades, he's earned enormous respect from fellow musicians and music fans throughout the world.
Born and raised in the famed arts colony of Woodstock, NY, Jim received great acclaim during his long tenure (1985-2000) as lead guitarist (replacing Robbie Robertson) for Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Band. During 15 years of international touring with original members Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko, Jim was featured on numerous albums, films, videos and television appearances. Highlights included a 1990 performance with The Band and Ronnie Hawkins at The Berlin Wall concert produced by Roger Waters of Pink Floyd; several cable TV specials (notably "The Bob Dylan Tribute" at Madison Square Garden; "The Road," and "This Country's Rocking")

The Fargen JW-40 was painstakingly developed over the course of 2 solid years. Benjamin Fargen worked closely with guitarist Jim Weider to develop the look and sound of this brand new Fargen amp design. Jim's years of recording, touring, collection of vintage amps and his ear for killer guitar tones served as a guide.
