Product Description

The Fender Custom Shop Rory Gallagher Stratocaster Electric Guitar recreates every detail of this legendary instrument.
Fender Custom Shop designers met Donal Gallagher, brother of the late, great Rory Gallagher, in 1997 at Los Angeles International Airport and received a gig bag holding one of the most coveted guitars of all time—Rory’s worn-to-the-wood 1961 Stratocaster guitar. Fender initially built 40 clones for the European market, and was subsequently besieged with requests for more.

The Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster guitar is an exact replica of that revered instrument, right down to the extremely worn 3-Color Sunburst alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Fender has even included five Sperzel tuners and one Gotoh tuner, and they’ve replaced the 12th-fret dot marker with white plastic instead of the original clay. It also features three custom-wound ’60s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 jumbo frets and a bone nut. Fender's homage to a true and truly missed master.

A true legend!
Your general opinion of this product.
I absolutely love this guitar--everything about it except the price. Seems guitars in general are getting outrageously expensive. I've noted the same with Gibson to be fair. In defense, I must say (I could be wrong)there are most likely a lot of man hours spent on each of these instruments--so the price is what it is I suppose.
