This Guitar Is No Longer Available Through Fender, But
It Is Available As A Fabulous Fake
Robin Trower is an English rock guitarist who achieved success with Procol Harum during the 1960s, and then again as the leader of his own power trio.
Trower has been a long time proponent of the Fender Stratocaster. He currently uses his custom built Strat made by the Fender Custom Shop which comes in Black, Arctic White and Midnight Wine Burst. The guitar is equipped with a 1950s reissue pickup in the neck position, a 1960s reissue in the middle position, and a Texas Special at the bridge. Other features included a custom C-shaped maple neck featuring a large headstock with a Bullet truss-rod system, locking machine heads and a maple fingerboard with narrow-spaced abalone dot position inlays and 21 frets. The Strats he plays live are an exact model of his signature guitar, which is entirely unmodified. During live performances, his guitar is tuned a full step down, to a DGCFAD tuning, instead of the "standard" EADGBE tuning.
