Fender teams up with Sports Car Maker to Create Carbon Fibre Guitar

Fender has released the Stratocaster 1, a custom shop design created in partnership with Saleen Automotive.

The new candy apple red electric guitar has been modelled around the Saleen 1 sports car and features a hollowed carbon-fibre body with a roasted alder centre block and hand-carved maple top. The neck has a carbon fibre round-lam fingerboard topped off with a matching carbon fibre headstock overlay.

To complete the set, the Fender Stratocaster 1 also comes with a matching pedalboard and will be displayed with a Saleen car at Winter NAMM 2020.
