You can watch Sultana demo the new guitar and discuss their song ‘Pretty Lady’ as part of Fender’s Tracks video series below:
Specs-wise, Sultana’s guitar has a matching painted headstock, custom “skull” neck plate, along with Yosemite single-coil Strat and Dobule Tap humbucking bridge pickups. It features a deep “C”-shape maple neck, 9.5″ radius fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets and a vintage-style synchronised tremolo.
“Fender is one of the first guitars I saved up for when I started playing and in fact is the first instrument I learned to play,” commented Sultana in a statement.
“It’s really surreal to have my own signature model now after walking through music stores as a kid seeing so many guitars I wish I could have owned. The guitar has truly become my third arm and I hope that my signature guitar with Fender sparks other guitar players to create music that inspires and allows self expression freely.”
Last last month, Sultana performed a wide-ranging headline show at Hordern Pavilion in Sydney as part of NSW’s Great Southern Nights series, with the guitarist later sharing a concert video of the full two-hour performance.
