We come back, after a long hiatus, with one of the most surprising models released during the Summer NAMM show is the Fender Billy Corgan Signature Stratocaster, developed by Fender and the frontman of the recently-regrouped Smashing Pumpkins. The guitar includes almost all the specifications of an American Fender but with some improvements made by Corgan himself.
The Fender Billy Corgan Signature Stratocaster features alder body, maple neck and fingerboard, 22 jumbo frets, 25.5″ scale length, modern hard tail bridge, 2 Dimarzio Billy Corgan humbucker (neck and bridge, single-coil space) and 1 Chopper humbucker (middle) pickups, 5-way pickup switch (that mixes between full humbucker and single-coil parts of the pickups) and 1 master volume and 2 tone controls.
This model, is available in 2 different colors black body, pickups and controls with olimpic white pickguard or vice versa, both models with chrome hardware, satin lacquer finish and 70’s classic large headstock. The price and availability of the Fender Billy Corgan Signature Stratocaster have not been announced yet.
