From Our Research Team:
A Tribute to Rory GallagherThe Fender Custom Shop has been building dream guitars for the cream of the guitar crop for nearly 20 years. From faithful reproductions of classic axes of the past to fully tweaked customs built to an individual's personal specifications, few instruments command the level of respect afforded Fender Custom Shop models. There are degrees of Fender Custom Shop models: Stock Team-built and Team-built Custom. A select few instruments are handbuilt by the Master Luthiers, the same luthiers that build custom instruments for the likes of Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Merle Haggard. This is the Fender Custom Shop Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster.
Fender Custom Shop designers met Donal Gallagher, brother of the late, great Rory Gallagher, in 1997 at Los Angeles International Airport and received a gig bag holding one of the most coveted guitars of all time-Rory's worn-to-the-wood 1961 Stratocaster guitar. Fender initially built 40 "clones" for the European market, and was subsequently besieged with requests for more.
The Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster guitar is an exact replica of that revered instrument, right down to the extremely worn 3-Color Sunburst alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Fender even included five Sperzel tuners and one Gotoh tuner, and they've replaced the 12th-fret dot marker with white plastic instead of the original clay. It also features three custom-wound '60s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 jumbo frets and a bone nut. This is Fender's homage to a true and truly missed master.

Music Background: Playing over 50 years and love it.
iF you ever get a chance to play one of these grab it and hold on
Up Until right now I have always thought my Custom Shop Clapton was the best Electric Guitar I ever pl... read more [+]ayed.
The neck on this Rory Gallagher, which until today I thought the soft V neck on the Clapton was unsurpassed, is just fantastic in every way possible. The shape and the medium jumbo frets and the smooth as silk body of the neck it's just incredible. And the neck is thin.......yes but a 60's C Shape.
I recieved it on Friday about 1pm, I honestly couldnt stop playing it all weekend (long weekend too because of Presidents day).
After playing this it is hands down off the charts unequivicablyThe best guitar I have ever owned or played for that matter. The sound , feel, playability, speed and comfort.
The custom shop Clapton is just superb. My SRV is a wonderful and beautiful strat.
I played a friends incredible Robert Cray that was really something
The Rory Gallagher is far and away the best of all of these.
I can't believe it. It's just incredible and it really feels like its been played in since 1967.
It's just a feeling I have never felt before on a guitar.
Hey Jeff you helped me everyway possible along the way with this guitar.
I am so glad I bought this!! close [-]
