The Fender Tom Morello Stratocaster in Black is especially cool to us because Tom grew up in Libertyville, Illinois, and took lessons here when he was a kid! We have always loved Tom, his Mom, his bands, and music so to see him honored after all these years, it's hard not to feel a little proud!
The Tom Morello Strat is a seriously powerful electric guitar, loaded with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails Humbucker in the bridge position and a pair of Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups in the middle and neck. An added kill switch on the treble side horn provides onboard access to an effect that, if he didn't create, he absolutely perfected!
Tom Morello's unique, powerful sounds - from gentle rhythms to screaming feedback, chaotic stutters, and more - require a very special Stratocaster®. The Tom Morello “Soul Power” Stratocaster – based on the modified Designer Series Strat used during his time in Audioslave – features an alder slab body with binding and a "Modern C"-shape maple neck with 9.5"-14" compound radius on a rosewood fingerboard, with 22 medium-jumbo frets.
Other features include a recessed Floyd Rose® locking tremolo system, Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge humbucker, two Fender® Noiseless™ pickups in the neck and middle positions, chrome pickguard, kill-switch toggle, locking tuners, matching painted headcap and iconic "Soul Power" body decal in the black Fender case.
