New Michael Landau Fender in red! The Michael Landau Fender 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.

The Michael Landau Fender is a precise replication of Michael’s personal guitar. In fact, Michael was so impressed with this version that he owns one himself and has been using it almost exclusively ever since. The color fade and relic treatment are perfect, while the neck feels like a vintage guitar. It sounds beautiful and rings nice with a woody tone. This is a very versatile instrument.

This special Michael Landau Fender guitar features handwound Stratocaster pickups with 5-way switching, aged-white knobs and vintage hardware. This detailed Custom Shop reproduction of a 1963 Strat was built utilizing original tooling and production techniques of the era. And its Relic finish treatment gives it the look of a well-traveled and played axe, although it is absolutely new in setup and playability.

I am a big Landau fan and saw him playing Live with the Michael Landau Fender. I  play Michael Landau Fender guitar for more than 5 years and his playing is very impressive to me.
