To celebrate Harley-Davidson's 105th Anniversary celebration in Milwaukee, Wis. Aug. 27-31, 2008, the Fender Custom Shop has created three special edition Fender Stratocaster guitars commemorating the event. The first guitar (#1 of 3) is this guitar! The guitar will be exhibited on the Summerfest grounds August 29-30 at Harley-Davidson's Wreck Room exhibit.
The custom black Stratocaster features black cherry pin striping and a combination of black chrome and black nickel hardware. Other features include the Harley-Davidson Bar & Shield logo engraved on the jack plate, head stock appliqué, serialized neck plate and a Harley-Davidson inlay on the neck in black polycarbonate. The guitar is also highlighted by a perforated alloy pick-guard and back plates assembled with the use of socket-head Allen screws commonly used by Harley-Davidson on their motorcycles.
For more than two decades, the Fender Custom Shop has been a "dream factory," producing guitars that are to playing what Harley-Davidson's are to motorcycling. From beginnings in Fender's original Southern California home, the Custom Shop has grown to become the world's preeminent maker of custom "instantly collectible" instruments; making Fender's finest the world's finest and astounding players and collectors worldwide with marvels of creativity, ingenuity and artistry.
