The Fender Cory Wong Stratocaster has quickly become coveted by many players for its ultra-comfy body and Super Spanky Seymour Duncan Clean Machine Pickups. This guitar is part of a new run of the guitar, finished in Satin Daphne Blue.
Cory Wong is a renowned funk guitarist, producer, and arranger. His soulful playing with Vulfpeck and his Grammy-nominated solo work has earned him a loyal following and led to sold-out arena performances. The Cory Wong Stratocaster is a tribute to Cory's favorite Fender guitar, thoughtfully modified to meet his needs.
The guitar features a Daphne Blue satin lacquer finish that recreates the feel of Cory's beloved original Strat. The scaled-down alder body is slightly smaller than a typical Stratocaster, and it is combined with an American Ultra Modern "D" neck and sculpted body contours to deliver a sublimely comfortable playing experience. A set of Seymour Duncan Cory Wong Clean Machine pickups provides classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve Cory's distinctive tone.
Other features include a maple neck with a subtly modified headstock shape, a rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and a compound 10-14" radius, a 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". The guitar also comes with a Cory Wong hair tie (for muting the tremolo springs to achieve Cory's rhythm tone), a rubber strap lock washer set, and a custom neck plate.
The Cory Wong Stratocaster is a versatile and expressive instrument that is perfect for funk, soul, and a variety of other genres. It is a must-have for any guitarist who wants to achieve Cory Wong's signature sound.
