The Fender Custom Shop is pleased to announce the release of the Michael Landau Stratocaster guitar. As part of the Fender Custom Shop Artist Collection, this Signature Model joins the likes of other great artist models from Jeff Beck, Dick Dale, Eric Clapton and more.
Based on Landau’s 1963 Stratocaster, this Michael Landau Stratocaster features include a hand-selected lightweight alder body, special “custom oval C” neck profile, custom hand-wound pickups and wiring, and a worn Fiesta Red over 3-Color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Other highlights 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.
Michael Landau’s has been privileged to play on hundreds of recordings dating back to the early 1980s. Playing with artists like Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, B.B. King, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis, he was able to create quite a name for himself. Michael has also fronted several bands, including the Raging Honkies, Burning Water and, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar. This Michael Landau Stratocaster is just one of his best and favorite!

Stratocaster 1963 should have created these with a reverse pick-up of the wound and the wire sheilded in the middle as a raw to sacrifice good as an update for the modern day guitar – the best of both worlds, in my opinion – that would have made the best microphones for use from day to day of registration or shows. If you decide Okay vintage is where you want to be para be wise, it’s not for everyone and you can have a bit of retail buyers remorse.
This review comes six months after my purchase many hours of the ideal combination sound absolutely incredible and installation was easy. My only complaint is how much fluctuation there is in volume between the chain nes. They are a little lighter on the low end and high end, but nothing on the G String blasts your ears (and other chain nes). Otherwise, I will never use another set of pickups.I own a Fender Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster 1963 that came stock with N3 noiseless pickups and TBX / Mid-Boost system.
The Stratocaster 1963 guitar sounds great with this system, and it can even impress you at first because of the versatility it offers to your tone. But he had not the strat sound we all seek and search when we buy a Fender guitar. I felt that something was missing, so I started looking for other mics on YouTube (Are not we lucky to have these resources available).
