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 jumbo frets and a bone nut. Our homage to a true and truly missed master.

I love this guitar . It is everything I was looking for in a Strat . Quality , playability (what a beautiful neck !) and tone are all what I imagined a perfect Star would be . So just how do you rate the value of this guitar ? Yes , it's an expensive investment but then again , I've found my perfect Strat .

An amazing repro of an iconic guitar. Looks, feels and sounds like the actual guitar that Rory Played for all those years. A truly superb Fender CS rendition.
