World-renowned session ace Michael Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists as varied as Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, B.B. King, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, to name only a few. He has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and played dozens of guitars,including this Fender Landau Strat. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar.

The Fender Custom Shop Fender Landau Strat is based on Landau’s 1963 Stratocaster, with a hand-selected lightweight alder body, special “custom oval C” neck profile, custom hand-wound pickups and wiring, and a worn Fiesta Red over Three-color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Other features include a round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25″ radius and 6105 frets, period-correct small headstock, five-way pickup switching, and custom vintage-style tremolo bridge. The guitar comes with a case, strap and Fender Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.

What is interesting about the new Fender Landau Strat is that he is now using Fender pickups. Suhr have been producing a single coil pickup originally called the FL which were later renamed to ML pickups when Fletcher stopped using them so it seems they no may have to undergo yet another name change unless Landau is going to continue to use the pickup in his other guitars.
