Recognised for his incredible funk chops and inventive lead work, Grammy-nominated guitarist, producer, and arranger Cory Wong’s solo material and soulful playing with Vulfpeck have earned him a loyal following and led to sold-out arena performances.
The Cory Wong Stratocaster® is a tribute to Cory’s favourite Fender®, thoughtfully modified to meet the funk master’s needs.
The Sapphire Blue Transparent satin lacquer finish recreates the look and feel of Cory’s beloved original Strat®, while the scaled-down alder body – slightly smaller than a typical Stratocaster – combined with American Ultra™ Modern “D” neck and sculpted body contours deliver a sublimely comfortable playing experience. A set of Seymour Duncan® Cory Wong Clean Machine™ pickups provides classic Strat quack and chime, fine-tuned to achieve his distinctive tone.
Other features include a maple neck with subtly modified headstock shape, rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges and a compound 10-14” radius, vintage-style 6-screw synchronised Tremolo, deluxe locking tuners that provide improved tuning stability and easy string changes, and a push/push pot on Tone 2 that bypasses the 5-way switch and defaults to "Position 4". Also included are a Cory Wong hair tie (for muting the tremolo springs to achieve Cory’s rhythm tone), rubber strap-lock washer set and custom neck plate.
