Fender Artist Model Cory Wong Stratocaster® - Sapphire Blue Transparent
Serial: CW220961 Weight: 7 lbs 10 oz
Note: There is a small scratch on the back. Please see images for appearance.
Recognized for his incredible funk chops and inventive lead work, guitarist, producer, and arranger Cory Wong’s soulful playing with Vulfpeck, as well as his Grammy-nominated solo work have earned him a loyal following and led to sold-out arena performances. The Cory Wong Stratocaster® is a tribute to Cory’s favorite Fender®, thoughtfully modified to meet the funk master’s needs.
The Sapphire Blue Transparent satin lacquer finish recreates the look and feel of Cory’s beloved original Strat®, while the scaled-down alder body – slightly smaller than a typical Stratocaster – combined with American Ultra™ Modern “D” neck and sculpted body contours deliver a sublimely comfortable playing experience. A set of Seymour Duncan® Cory Wong Clean Machine™ pickups provides classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve his distinctive tone.
Other features include a maple neck with subtly modified headstock shape, rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and a compound 10-14” radius, vintage-style 6-screw synchronized Tremolo, deluxe locking tuners that provide improved tuning stability and easy string changes, and a push/push pot on Tone 2 that bypasses the 5-way switch and defaults to "Position 4". Also included are a Cory Wong hair tie (for muting the tremolo springs to achieve Cory’s rhythm tone), rubber straplock washer set and custom neck plate.
SAPPHIRE BLUE TRANSPARENT SATIN LACQUER FINISH
Recreating Cory’s beloved original Strat®, the Sapphire Blue Transparent satin lacquer finish allows the wood to breathe and will wear in beautifully.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN CORY WONG CLEAN MACHINE™ PICKUPS
Fine-tuned to achieve Cory’s unique tones, this signature Seymour Duncan set – featuring two single-coils and a stack bridge pickup – delivers classic Strat chime and singing lead sounds.
AMERICAN ULTRA NECK PROFILE AND BODY CONTOURS
The American Ultra Modern “D” neck profile and comfort contours deliver exceptional playability and easy access to the highest frets.
MODIFIED STRAT® BODY AND HEADSTOCK
Built to Cory’s specifications, the slightly smaller body and larger headstock creates a subtle but unique profile that makes this Strat® unmistakable.
VINTAGE-STYLE 6-SCREW SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
Arguably one of Fender’s most innovative designs, the six-screw synchronized tremolo delivers everything from subtle vibrato to deep dive-bombs and everything in-between.
DELUXE CAST/SEALED LOCKING TUNERS
Locking tuners make string changes quick and easy, while improving tuning stability.
