NAMM 2013 This wasn’t just any old relic’d black Stratocaster at the Fender Custom Shop booth, this was the new and limited for 2013 Ritchie Blackmore Strat.

This is the guitar that pays tribute to the man that wrote one of the quintessential Rock riffs, the simple yet melodic primer that all blooming guitarists like to pick up in their early days.  The Blackmore Strat is a reproduction of the 1968 Stratocaster that Blackmore wrote Smoke On The Water with, and it’s build of a hand selected alder body with a urethane finish, custom “U” shaped maple neck with a 7.25″ radius, 21 medium jumbo frets, custom ’68 Strat pickups handwound by Abby Ybarra, 3-way pickup switch, and a vintage bridge with a special 1/4″ tremolo arm just like Blackmore’s.



Contact sales at the Music Zoo if you would like to inquire about adding this killer tribute Stratocaster to your collection.

    So what will be the final price.

    How much will it be $$$$$

    I really liked the white one Fender made like 20 years ago. He deserves it and they should also make a tobacco sunburst version with the over sized head stock.

    They should make the one Blackmore played at the California Jam.
    The one with the ash body and a very large fat U shape scalloped neck.
    The US. reissue is very close in sound and neck feel but it doesn’t have the scalloping. Too bad that guitar was stolen from his home.
