Product Description

Fender Custom Shop Limited Pete Townshend Stratocaster Prototype Torino Red

The Pete Townshend Signature Fender Stratocaster was of itself a very cool guitar, but this is a special piece from within that run - this guitar was the final prototype sent from Fender to Pete and his longtime tech Alan Rogan. The guitar was previously under the ownership of previous Fender Custom Shop manager Mike Eldred, and includes a letter of authenticity written and signed by Eldred. This Strat is in excellent condition, and includes the letter, original case, and tremolo arm! An awesome piece for any Who enthusiast and collector.

Fender incorporated a method for Pete Townshend to to easily access both voice of electric and acoustic without switching guitars. A two-post Fishman Powerbridge tremolo bridge provides a palette of acoustic and hybrid acoustic/electric tones for Townsend to easily access as dictated by his needs. The Townshend Limited Edition Stratocaster uses three Lace Sensor Gold single-coil pickups for noise-free performance inspired by classic, crisp, bell-like Fender tone, boosted by an onboard Fender preamp. The onboard mid-boost is an excellent option for when you really need to crank it up and cut through a live band mix for solos or lead playing.

Includes: Hardshell Case, Letter from Mike Eldred, Case Candy
