OVERVIEW

This Masterbuilt Strat honors one of rock's greatest guitarists.

One of the most iconic guitars in George Harrison's history would have to be his hand-painted "Rocky" Strat. Harrison had wanted a Strat for years, but they were rare in the UK, and it wasn't until 1965 that he was finally able to get one. It soon became a favorite, appearing on Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, and, with Harrison's hand-painted psychedelic additions, on film in Magical Mystery Tour. So when Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder Paul Waller had the chance to craft a faithful recreation of "Rocky," it was a thrill and a challenge. Waller carefully measured every aspect of the guitar from the cosmetics of Harrison's DIY paint job and decal work to the original "Grimwoods" music store decal on the back of the headstock. He also painstakingly measured the pickups, wiring and asymmetrical C profile neck. The end result of care and meticulous craft is an exacting tribute to one of rock's great guitarists and one of his favorite instruments.

Becoming a Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilder isn't a easy path. Beyond complete mastery of traditional and modern luthiery skills, a builder must have an instinct for perfection and an imagination to see and hear the guitar in the hands of great players. Even experienced luthiers coming to Fender must serve a years-long apprenticeship before they can finally be held worthy of the title "Masterbuilder."
