2016 Fender Custom Shop 1961 Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster
I used some video from another recent Rory I sold. Trust me they all look the same, and All sound Great!
It was just made Aug 8, 2016 USA Custom Shop. The weight is 7-1/2lbs, and has some different Custom Shop manual and case goodies. See the pics
This Always sold out Rory (from Fender Custom Shop, I can never get one without 3-6 month wait) is $4,560 at all the big music stores. Save Right Here!
Listen to my vibe and excitement playing this Gem on the video's.. This Strat is a Wild one.. I LOVE IT*
Also the white piece of business card I use in photo's is to set the white balance on camera. Pictures just come out their True color when I use the white like this. I never said I was a professional photographer..... BUT in a way I am..:)
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 '1961s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 jumbo frets and a bone nut.
