Fender has announced the September 2008 release of the brand's new Signature Series model, the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster guitar.
According to Fender, the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Stratocaster is based on Shepherd's own '61 instrument (which will soon be on display at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum) and adds vintage style to modern features. This model was designed to have a tone of its own thanks to its three custom-voiced Kenny Wayne Shepherd pickups.
Other features include an alder body, a maple neck with 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard and 21 jumbo frets, a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with Graph Tech® saddles, and Fender vintage-style tuning machines. The guitar comes in three polyester finishes: a Black model with a three-ply black-white-black pickguard and racing stripe body graphic, and Three-color Sunburst and Arctic White models that each have a three-ply mint green pickguard (with cross graphic on the Arctic White model).
No price was announced as of yet.
