Jason Smith is known across the globe as one of Fenders highly revered Masterbuilders, a select group of the world's most esteemed luthiers. With this Godly status, any guitar with his name attached generates a huge amount of interest, and rightly so!
Mike Landau has played on hundreds of albums since the early 1980s, with artists such as Joni Mitchell, Seal, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, B.B. King, Pink Floyd and Miles Davis to name just 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, Fusion and Rock Guitar.
Combine the two kings of their field, and you have this utterly breathtaking piece - a left-handed take on Mike Landau's 63 Strat.
The hand-selected 2-piece alder body is finished in Fiesta Red over 3 Tone Sunburst and loaded with hand wound Fat 50's Strat pickups, offering huge sonic flexibility and fat, enhanced bass response.
The riff sawn maple neck with rosewood fingerboard is chosen to Landau's personal preference, and features a 7.25" radius and 21 x 6105 frets.
Supreme quality from top to bottom and shipped in a Fender Custom Shop hard case, it's easy to see why the Fender Masterbuilders are so highly regarded.
Left-handed guitars of this calibre just don't come around every day, so we're not expecting it to hang around for long!
