Fender Stratocaster USA American Fat Strat Texas Special
Serial no. Z1050023 (2000-2003)

In November 2005 I bought my first real USA Fender. This guitar replaced the Framus copy that I owned for 30+ years.This beauty has the real open Fender sound, has the Fender-twang and because of the Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates humbucker, it has enormous power for soloing.
The cover plate on the back says "Fender Corona, California"


Sound samples

"Crazy little thing called love"
"Sultans of Swing"
