Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Masterbuilt (Todd Krause) Michael Landau Coma Stratocaster Relic - PRE-ORDER
PRE-ORDER - This Masterbuilt Limited Edition Fender Custom Shop Michael Landau "Coma" Stratocaster is now available as a pre-order. It will ship Fender in the second half of 2023 into 2024. There isn't an exact date, but we can say that we ordered it immediately when it was announced and are the top of the list. Also, Fender does not number the guitars in succession (the serial #'s will be random). A small number will be made for the entire planetary system! We are accepting preorders now, and will only have 1 to sell.
World-renowned session ace Michael Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists as varied as Joni Mitchell, Pink Floyd, Michael Jackson, Miles Davis, James Taylor, B.B. King, and Rod Stewart, to name only a few. He has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar.
For decades, Michael’s go-to guitar was his 1959 Stratocaster which became affectionately known as “Coma.” This guitar has evolved along with his playing style, morphing from a Floyd Rose® equipped super Strat® with an on-board boost circuit to its current state as an HSS model with custom-voiced Noiseless™ Strat pickups and a custom Wide Range Humbucker. The beautifully worn red-stained alder body tells the tale of a well-loved guitar that’s seen countless studios and stages across the world, marked with faded hand-drawn artwork and tattered stickers.
Custom Shop Masterbuilder Todd Krause and Michael partnered to build a limited run of this prized Stratocaster, capturing the wear from years of use and every scar from previous modifications—including Michael’s hand-drawn “COMA” on the body in permanent marker just as he had done years ago.
Additional features include: ‘60s Oval “C” Neck Back-Shape; 7.25” Radius; 21 Narrow Tall (55095) Frets; Vol/Tone/Tone Wiring with 5-Way Switch; ClassicGear™ Tuning Machines; Bone Nut; Single Butterfly String Tree; Deluxe Hardshell Case; “Coma” Strap; Certificate of Authenticity, “the Story of Coma” booklet written by Michael himself.
The Michael Landau “Coma” Stratocaster is the latest installment in our Stories Collection, highlighting cult-favorite Fender instruments that have been modified in the hands of legendary artists.
