A near clone of Rory's famous battle-worn Strat.

Fender Custom Shop designers met Donal Gallagher, brother of late great guitarist Rory Gallagher, in Los Angeles in 1997 and received one of the most coveted guitars of all time - Gallagher's heavily worn 1961 Stratocaster guitar. Fender initially built 40 replicas for European sale, but was subsequently besieged with requests for more. The Rory Gallagher Tribute Stratocaster guitar is an exact replica of that revered instrument, down to the extremely worn Three-color Sunburst alder body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. It even has five Sperzel tuners and one Gotoh tuner, and the 12th-fret dot marker is white plastic rather than the original clay. It also features three custom-wound '60s single-coil pickups, aged chrome hardware, 21 jumbo frets and a bone nut. Fender includes a case with the Rory Gallagher Signature Electric Guitar.

  • Rory Strat

    As reviewed by Porkpie James on 1/22/2011

    I was at the Nashville guitar show 4 years ago with the mindset on getting a mid-70's Les Paul. I brought along a 64 Mustang and a reissue Custom Shop Nocaster for trade bait. I narrowed my picks down to 3 Les Pauls. Sunday I went back to close the deal and saw this old looking Strat sitting in a booth and picked it up and plinked around a bit. This was the motherlode! It felt as though I'd played this guitar for years, neck was like butter. Next step, plug it in. Single coils were true to vintage stock and I was sold. Sure I had heard of Rory but never got into what guitar he used. Well it's my #1 over the last 4 years. Only a resonator has made it up on stage. It's got the feel, mojo and sound. What a beauty!!
