Fender has unveiled its latest signature guitar, the “People Pleaser” Steve Lacy Stratocaster.

A collaboration with pop and R&B star Steve Lacy, who – before he was a chart-topping artist in his own right – first came to the world's attention as the electric guitar player for alternative R&B band The Internet, the Mexican-built People Pleaser indeed lives up to its name with some tasty custom appointments.
