Presenting the all new Fender Cory Wong Signature Stratocaster in Sapphire Blue.
Recognized for his incredible funk chops and inventive lead work, guitarist/producer/arranger Cory Wong’s soulful playing with Vulfpeck, as well as his Grammy-nominated solo work have earned him a loyal following and led to sold-out arena performances.
The new Fender Cory Wong Stratocaster is a tribute to Cory’s favorite Fender, thoughtfully modified to meet his personal needs.
The Sapphire Blue Transparent satin lacquer finish recreates the look and feel of Cory’s beloved original Strat, while the scaled-down alder body – slightly smaller than a typical Stratocaster – combined with the American Ultra's Modern “D” neck and sculpted body contours deliver a sublimely comfortable playing experience. A set of Seymour Duncan® Cory Wong Clean Machine™ pickups provide classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve his distinctive tone.
Other custom features include a maple neck with subtly modified headstock shape, rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and modern compound 10-14” radius, vintage-style 6-screw synchronized Tremolo, deluxe locking tuners that provide improved tuning stability and easy string changes, and a push/push 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 straplock washer set and custom neck plate.
Some of the key features of Cory's Strat include:
- The Sapphire Blue Transparent satin lacquer finish: allows the wood to breathe and will wear in beautifully.
- Fine-tuned to achieve Cory’s unique tones, Cory's signature Seymour Duncan Clean Machine pickup set – featuring two single-coils and a stack bridge pickup – delivers classic Strat chime and singing lead sounds.
- The American Ultra Modern “D” neck profile and comfort contours deliver exceptional playability and easy access to the highest frets.
- Built to Cory’s specifications, the slightly smaller body and larger headstock creates a subtle but unique profile that makes this Strat unmistakable.
- Arguably one of Fender’s most innovative designs, the six-screw synchronized tremolo delivers everything from subtle vibrato to deep dive-bombs and everything in-between.
- Locking tuners make string changes quick and easy, while improving tuning stability.
