Session ace Michael Landau has worked closely with Fender Custom Shop to create two new Stratocaster models that are right up our alley. We’re very excited to get our hands on both his new ’63 and ’68 spec relic Stratocasters, with their customized tremolos, lovely neck shape, and custom wound pickups. These will each be shipping by the end of the year. MSRP starts at $5,200 and we are taking pre-orders now! The ’68 comes in either black or 3-tone sunburst, and the ’63 is a gorgeous Fiesta red over 3-tone sunburst.
