Fender Custom Shop Rory Gallagher Signature Stratocaster Heavy Relic 3 Color Sunburst Finish Pre-Owned 2007 ID-11689
Fender Custom Shop
For over 25 years the extraordinarily talented luthiers of the Fender Custom Shop have been providing the most illustrious guitar players of their day with their dream instruments.
Fender Custom Shop designers met Donal Gallagher, brother of late great guitarist Rory Gallagher, in Los Angeles in 1997 and received one of the most coveted guitars of all time - Gallagher’s heavily worn 1961 Stratocaster® guitar. Fender initially built 40 replicas for European sale, but was subsequently besieged with requests for more.
The Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster guitar is an exact replica of that revered instrument, down to the extremely worn Three-color Sunburst alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard.
It even has five Sperzel® tuners and one Gotoh® tuner, and the 12th-fret dot marker is white plastic rather than the original clay. It also features three custom-wound ’60s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 jumbo frets and a bone nut. Our homage to a true and truly missed master.
Fender Custom Shop Custom '60's Strat single-coil pickups produce the full, punchy tone that defined rock in the late '60s and is especially effective with pedals.
This instrument is in Excellent + Condition aside from the Factory Relic!
Includes Hardshell Case.
