NAMM2015: Fender Custom Shop Master Builder John Cruz, who is normally known for his vintage and relic works has changed it up quite a bit on this one. In an effort to showcase his artistic style and range of musical genres (Metal!) he, along with Fender Custom Shop debuted the Zombie Stratocaster at NAMM 2015. Think of it as a tribute to the highly popular AMC series The Walking Dead. The horror themed artwork on this guitar, which even allows for the flame to come thru, was done by Joaquin Lopez and is both vivid and disturbing – in a good way of course! Check out the video below to see John Cruz describe this amazing and one-of-a-kind Strat! Check out our amazing selection of Fender Custom Shop guitars here.
