NOTE: Click on picture to see large gallery.

This is a 2009 Fender Richie Blackmore Stratocaster made in Mexico in Olympic White. It's got some wear, but also has some great upgrades, such as the Seymour Duncan STK-S10 YJM Fury Yngwie Malmsteen pickups ($250 upgrade). Also upgraded to Kluson Revolution locking tuners ($90 upgrade), and it comes with a nice leather strap complete with Duncan straplocks that work with the locking system already onboard the Blackmore. The scalloped neck and frets are in really great shape. These are awesome Strats. Overall looks really clean from the front. Has some paint cracks near the rear strap peg extending up to the tremolo cover. Previous owner covered them a bit with some stickers. Very comfortable 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Thanks for looking! 

Manufacturer Info
A signature model designed by one of the pioneers of hard rock.
Acclaimed guitarist Ritchie Blackmore has been creating memorable guitar riffs for decades. His deft phrasing, fleet-fingered picking, and unmistakable tone have helped make the phrase "guitar solo" a household term. The Fender Ritchie Blackmore Signature Stratocaster is based on his favorite '70s model and has a maple neck with a graduated scalloped rosewood fretboard, Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound Flat pickups, and '70s-style "F" tuners. Just like Richie's Strat, the guitar's middle pickup has been replaced with a non-working dummy pickup. Deluxe gig bag included.Model Name: Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster
