Fender Announces the Cory Wong Signature Stratocaster

Fender Cory Wong

A tribute to Cory's favorite Fender guitar, thoughtfully modified to meet the funk master's needs.

The Sapphire Blue transparent satin lacquer finish recreates the look and feel of Cory's beloved original Strat guitar, while the scaled-down alder body – slightly smaller than a typical Stratocaster – combined with a modern "D" neck and sculpted body contours deliver a sublimely comfortable playing experience.

Exploring The Cory Wong Stratocaster | Artist Signature Series | Fender

The instrument features a set of Seymour Duncan Cory Wong Clean Machine™ pickups that provide classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve his distinctive tone, a maple neck with subtly modified headstock shape, rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and a compound 10-14" radius, vintage-style 6-screw synchronized Tremolo, deluxe locking tuner, and a Push / Pull pot on Tone 2 that bypasses the 5-way switch and defaults to "Position 4". Also included are a Cory Wong hair tie (for muting the tremolo springs to achieve Cory's rhythm tone), rubber strap lock washer set and custom neck plate.

($1,999.99 USD, £2,249 GBP, €2,499 EUR, $3,699 AUD, ¥319,000 JPY)
