Hawkwind - Quark Strangeness And Charm

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?
