Ritchie Blackmore Tribute Stratocaster
Fender creates guitar in honour of former Deep Purple member.
Fans of 'Smoke On The water' can now unleash their inner rock star with a Fender guitar designed in honour of Richie Blackmore and the black 1968 Stratocater on which he played the now-iconic G-minor riff, imitated by generations of guitarists since.
The new Fender model comes with an exclusive tribute decal on the back of the headstock, certificate of authenticity and an orange-lined, black textured vinyl case with the Fender "amp" logo.
You can view a trailer for the instrument below.
Will you guys be buying it? Has Blackmore's 'Smoke On the Water' riff inspired any guitarists out there?
