Blackmore and Fender team up
Mythical guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has been creating memorable guitar riffs for decades. His deft phrasing and unmistakable tone have helped make the phrase "guitar solo" a household term. Ritchie and Fender are now proud to introduce the Ritchie Blackmore Signature Strat. Based on his favorite '70s Stratocaster, this guitar features a maple neck with a graduated scalloped rosewood fretboard, Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Flat pickups, and '70s style "F" tuners. A heavy-duty gig bag is also included.
Ritchie Blackmore's killer touch and style could make any instrument sing, but his preferred tool of choice is the Strat. This model's scalloped rosewood fretboard lets you fret and bend effortlessly. The combination of parts and Blackmore's touch make a memorable tone that's become entrenched in the classic rock canon.
Pickups: two plus one
Fender equipped the Ritchie Blackmore Strat with two high-output Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound SSL-4 single-coil pickups. Bigger than usual magnets give these pickups more than double the power of an ordinary single-coil! Though you'll see three pickups mounted in this guitar, the middle unit is inactive (just like Ritchie's!). A 3-way selector switch lets you navigate between the high-output pickups.
