Legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has been creating
memorable guitar riffs for decades. His deft phrasing and
unmistakable tone have helped make the phrase “guitar solo”
a household term. Blackmore and Fender are now proud to
introduce the Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster. Based on his
favorite '70s Stratocaster, the guitar features a maple neck with
a graduated scalloped rosewood fretboard, Seymour Duncan®
Quarter Pound Flat™ pickups and '70s-style “F” tuners. Play
one today at an authorized Fender dealer near you.
