Fender’s new Cory Wong Stratocaster is based on Mr Wong’s own guitar, with a few subtle tweaks to the standard Strat formula along the way.

We first saw a glimpse of this new model during the Summer NAMM show earlier this month. With a slightly scaled-down alder body finished in a transparent sapphire blue finish, this new Fender Cory Wong Stratocaster is a sweet-looking guitar that should certainly turn heads when you take it out to gigs. It’s practically the same size as a regular Strat, so don’t expect a dinky guitar!

This model also comes with a modern D profile maple neck, topped with a rosewood fingerboard that has comfy rolled edges and a modern compound 10-14″ radius.

Cory Wong’s signature Strat comes with a set of a set of Seymour Duncan Cory Wong Clean Machine pickups, controlled by a push/pull pot on Tone 2 that bypasses the five-way switch and defaults to the fourth position.

Overall, this guitar looks pretty enticing, if you like blue transparent finishes. And although it’s a looker, it’s a shame this isn’t offered with an ash, as ash has a nicer grain pattern than alder. Included with every guitar is a rubber strap lock washer set and a Cory Wong hair tie for muting the tremolo strings; Cory uses them to prevent the springs making a noise when he is playing clean.
