The Billy Corgan Signature Fender Stratocaster….

Fender’s new Billy Corgan Stratocaster guitar is designed for the millennium and built for modern high-gain sound. Made to Corgan’s exact specs to create his famous mid-’90s buzz-saw tone, this instrument features three DiMarzio pickups (two custom for this instrument), a string-through hardtail bridge and a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Vintage tweed case included.

Billy Corgan’s Fender Stratocaster was created back in 2007 when Corgan worked closely with Fender to create his first signature model. Released in June 2008, the Billy Corgan Stratocaster is an extraordinarily versatile and modern take on the Stratocaster, meticulously crafted to Corgan’s exacting specifications and specifically designed with custom-wound pickups to get the high-gain sound and signature mid-’90s buzz-saw tone that helped make Corgan such a distinctive and influential guitarist.
