Fender Launches New Finishes for Cory Wong Stratocaster

Fender Launches New Finishes for Cory Wong Stratocaster

Fender releases two new colors for Cory Wong's signature Strat: Daphne Blue and Surf Green.

Cory Wong's signature model has a 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. Outfitted with a set of Seymour Duncan Cory Wong Clean Machine pickups, this guitar provides a classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve Cory’s distinctive tone.

When asked about the new colors, he said: “I’ve wanted to release the Cory Wong Stratocaster in other colors since the original Sapphire Blue Transparent version was released in 2021. I'm a visual person and believe the look of a guitar can affect the approach one takes to playing it. Certain instruments can draw things out of a musician, and the vibe of the instrument definitely plays a role in that. With the release of these two new colors, my goal was to provide players with a guitar that exudes a bright, fun energy.”
