Here's an opportunity to own one of the most popular Fender Custom Shop guitars at great price: the Rory Gallagher Strat.  These can be hard to get, as the Custom Shop only makes a limited number of them each year.  New, it's $5400.  Here's one that's barely been played, for way less.  It was built in 2013, and purchased here at Truetone by a collector that didn't really play.  So, the guitar basically went unplayed since then, and is now back here to be sold again.

The Rory Gallagher Strat is a recreation of the legendary guitarist's main instrument, and also perfect for anyone that wants a 60's style Strat with a slim neck, vintage sounding pickups, and a worn-in feel.  The guitar has been vetted and setup by the techs in our repair shop, and comes with the original case, Cruz Tools kit, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.  

For more info and full specs, please see below.  Don't miss grabbing this one before it's gone!

Fender Custom Shop designers met Donal Gallagher, brother of late great guitarist Rory Gallagher, in Los Angeles in 1997 and received one of the most coveted guitars of all time - Gallagher’s heavily worn 1961 Stratocaster® guitar. Fender initially built 40 replicas for European sale, but was subsequently besieged with requests for more. The Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster guitar is an exact replica of that revered instrument, down to the extremely worn Three-color Sunburst alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. It even has five Sperzel® tuners and one Gotoh® tuner, and the 12th-fret dot marker is white plastic rather than the original clay. It also features three custom-wound '60s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 medium jumbo frets and a synthetic bone nut. Our homage to a true and truly missed master.
