A signature model designed by one of the pioneers of hard rock.

Acclaimed guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has been creating memorable guitar riffs for decades. His deft phrasing, fleet-fingered picking, and unmistakable tone have helped make the phrase "guitar solo" a household term. The Fender Ritchie Blackmore Signature Stratocaster is based on his favorite '70s model and has a maple neck with a graduated scalloped rosewood fretboard, Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Flat pickups, and '70s-style "F" tuners. Just like Richie's Strat, the guitar's middle pickup has been replaced with a non-working dummy pickup. Deluxe gig bag included.
