World-renowned guitar player 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, more recently, Renegade Creation with Robben Ford. With his own group, he continues to raise the bar in electric jazz, instrumental and rock guitar. His gig guitar Fender Landau Amp is really a great one!
The Fender Landau Amp based its design on Landau’s 1968 Stratocaster, with a hand-selected lightweight alder body, special “custom oval” neck profile, custom hand-wound pickups and wiring, and a worn Black and Bleached Three-color Sunburst nitrocellulose lacquer finishes.
Other features is Fender Landau Amp of thinclude a round-laminated dark rosewood fingerboard with a 7.25″ radius and 6105 frets, period-correct large 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.
The Fender Landau Amp is so resonant. It is very deep tonally and responses to differences in attack with tons of nuances. The neck feels Great! This guitar for me seems like a game changer. It is the BEST Strat I’ve ever played. But this one was put in my hands at a local shop when I was demo’ing amps. A friend grabbed it off the wall and instantly it felt and sounded amazing!
