    Product Description

    When you do session work for some of the biggest musicians around you need a guitar that can be relied on. The Fender Custom Shop Michael Landau 1968 Signature Strat sounds amazing and is built to take the rigours of everyday performance.

    The Stratocaster has been the backbone of rock music since its release in 1954 and the list of artists who rely on them each day is endless. World-renowned session ace Michael Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists as varied as Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, B.B. King, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, to name only a few. He has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar.

    Built to rock

    The Fender Custom Shop Artist Collection Michael Landau Signature 1968 Relic Stratocaster is based on Landau’s 1968 Stratocaster, with a hand-selected lightweight alder body, special "custom oval" neck profile and a worn Black and Bleached Three-color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finishes.

    The custom hand-wound pickups and wiring on this guitar are first rate. A trio of Custom fat 50’s style single coils give you incredible brightness and depth with a versatility that’s ideal for
    studio work. 

    Other features include a round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25" radius and 6105 frets, period-correct large headstock, five-way pickup switching, and custom vintage-style tremolo bridge. The guitar comes with a case, strap and Fender Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.
