FENDER LAUNCHES 30th ANNIVERSARY SCREAMADELICA STRAT

After it’s announcement at Fender’s online dealer meeting earlier this year, they are officially launching the 30th Anniversary Screamadelica Stratocaster® in Fender’s first ever official collaboration with the legendary Primal Scream.

Primal Scream’s 1991 seminal album “Screamadelica” featured a fresh blend of indie-rock songwriting and acid house-inspired production, propelling the Scottish rock ‘n’ roll band to international stardom. The limited edition Screamadelica 30th Anniversary Stratocaster commemorates the pivotal recording with a one of a kind all-over graphic of the stunning red, yellow and blue album art – including matching pickguard, pickup covers and knobs.

On the partnership, Justin Norvell, EVP Fender Product said: “Screamadelica is part of the fabric of modern rock – it is an honor to create this limited run of commemorative guitars which play just as impressive as they look. This model is packed full of great features – including Alnico V pickups for those crystal clear highs and warm lows – and I can’t wait to see what players around the world create with this guitar.”

The guitar boasts a variety of top-of-the-range features, including a Modern “C”-shaped maple neck with 9.5” radius pau ferro fingerboard, medium jumbo frets for modern playability and comfort, and vintage-voiced alnico V single-coil pickups to deliver classic Fender tone. Players can also enjoy a 2-point synchronized tremolo, a custom Screamadelica neck plate and a deluxe gig bag.
