The Fender Custom Shop is proud to present the Limited Edition Pete Townshend Stratocaster to players and fans.
One of Townshend’s hallmarks as a songwriter is his use of intertwined electric and acoustic guitar sounds.
The last known stage use of a Les Paul Deluxe was 28 Dec. Known for his pummeling guitar work with The Who, Pete Townshend introduced a new sonic and visual vocabulary to rock ‘n’ roll with his masterful playing.
Blending modern musical technology with Fender’s timeless guitar design, the Limited Edition Pete Townshend Stratocaster is perfect for players who need a flexible guitar that will easily stand up to a few windmilled chords while sounding great all night long.
To celebrate the Golden Anniversary of the instrument behind the Live at Leeds-era Who performances and recordings, Gibson USA releases the 50th Anniversary Pete Townshend SG.
At his request, Fender incorporated a method for him to easily access both voices without switching guitars.
A two-post Fishman™ Powerbridge tremolo bridge provides a palette of acoustic and hybrid acoustic/electric tones for Townshend to easily access as dictated by his needs.
