After numerous collaborations with funk high-flyers Vulfpeck and the Fearless Flyers, Cory Wong has become a serious force in funk with his loose but tight rhythm chops. Reason enough for Fender to provide the exceptional guitarist with the Fender Cory Wong Stratocaster RW Sapphire Blue Transparent, a signature electric guitar inspired by his favourite Strat. Here, some interesting features shape the unique Strat design to elicit extremely comfortable playability and personalized switching options from the Signature model. 

Slim Alder Body

Compared to the traditional size of the US Strat, the Cory Wong Stratocaster relies on a slimmed-down body made of alder, which with its smooth contours allows for a particularly comfortable playing position. Together with a Modern D neck profile familiar from the American Ultra models and a compound fingerboard radius that rises from 10 to 14 inches, this results in a successful combination that makes for easy-to-reach funk Chords and carefree rhythm work for the right hand. 

Seymour Duncan Single Coils with Advanced Circuitry

Of course, Cory Wong's signature instrument features two of his custom Seymour Duncan Cory Wong Clean Machine single coils and a Clean Machine custom stack on the bridge. Designed with a focus on tangy and percussive clean tones, the pickups are switched via a 5-way blade switch and the classic knob layout. To avoid accidental switching of the blade switch while playing, it can be easily removed from the circuit via the push/push function of the second tone knob to remain permanently in Cory's preferred switch position 4. 

Locking tuners and Vintage-Style tremolo

The hardware of the Cory Wong Strat combines classic and modern Strat features and consists of a synchronized Vintage-Style tremolo and six Deluxe Cast/Sealed tuning machines with locking functions, which guarantee particularly easy string changes and reliable tuning stability. The Fender Cory Wong Stratocaster comes with a matching Deluxe Hardshell Case and an additional Cory Wong Hair Tie, which serves to dampen the tremolo springs for Cory's unique Rhythm Tone.
