A near clone of Rory's famous battle-worn Strat.

The Fender Custom Shop Rory Gallagher Signature electric guitar authentically recreates the heavily worn 1961 Stratocaster that defined the late guitarist's iconic sound. Made in the USA, this premium instrument is built to the same specs as Gallagher's prized original, from its relic three-color Sunburst finish to its aged chrome hardware. Powered by three custom-wound 1960s single-coil pickups, it delivers the unmistakable vintage Strat tone that Gallagher built his career on. The fast-playing neck bears Gallagher's preferred profile and premium rosewood fingerboard.

Fast, Comfortable Neck Profile

The Rory Gallagher Signature Stratocaster features a custom neck profile modeled after Gallagher's 1961 Strat. This rounded, medium C shape feels fast and comfortable in the hand, facilitating complex chord voicings and searing lead lines. The premium rosewood fingerboard adds warmth and resonance. 21 vintage-size frets provide a familiar playing feel for Strat veterans.

Relic Finish and Hardware Provide Vintage Appeal

The Rory Gallagher Signature Stratocaster features a relic three-color Sunburst finish that replicates the worn-in appearance of Gallagher's 1961 original. Aged chrome hardware, including the synchronized tremolo bridge, completes the vintage vibe. These authentic touches give the guitar a played-in feel while preserving its collectible status.

Custom Pickups Produce Iconic Strat Tone

This signature Strat comes equipped with three custom-wound 1960s single-coil pickups that provide the warm, articulate tone Gallagher relied on. The neck and middle pickups deliver a smooth, balanced response, while the bridge pickup adds bite and definition for solos. Master tone controls for the neck and middle pickups let you fine-tune your tone.

Custom Case Included

To keep your Rory Gallagher Signature Stratocaster safe, Fender includes a custom case. The plush-lined case fits the guitar perfectly and is designed to protect your investment during travel and storage.
