I told you back in November that there were plans by Fender to produce a custom model of David’s black Stratocaster, which is the one he has been playing most of all throughout the ‘On an Island’ tour.
Well, if you were one of the many excited guitar enthusiasts who didn’t quite relish waiting until July 2008 to get your hands on one, then I have some very good news.
It will be out this year, to coincide with the release of David’s ‘Remember That Night’ DVD.
The provisional price tag is said to be around $4,000 in the US and £2,000 in the UK.
Please note that it is a signature model, not a tribute model. Therefore it is not a ‘perfect’ replica of David’s, but it does have the same wood, pickups, neck, fixtures, etc.
More details to follow in the next week or two, so please don’t ask. I can’t add anything to the above at this time, unfortunately.
Indeed, these are all provisional details, hot off the press and subject to change. I just wanted to give you an update on how plans are progressing.
