Fender has partnered with mercurial Massachusetts guitarist Johnny A. for a luxuriously crafted custom shop signature Stratocaster, which amalgamates the artist’s four favorite model years.

The made-to-order signature guitar is based on Strats from the years 1963 to 1966, and arrives in two Time Capsule flash-coat colorways that aim to provide a suitably elegant aesthetic for “one of New England’s most accomplished sideman and solo artists”.
