NOT TO BE CONFUSED with the currently available Signature Series Trower Strat, this 3 bolt beauty is a RARE instrument indeed!
Just in at Diablo Guitars is this gorgeous Robin Trower ‘Bridge of Sighs’ Tribute Stratocaster. Issued by the Fender Custom Shop on the 30 year anniversary of the groundbreaking album.
Within the first notes ‘Bridge of Sighs’ Robin Trower helped define an era of guitar riff rock that influence multitudes of guitar players. Released in 1974, Robin’s Uni-Vibe laden soloing and songwriting strength made ‘Bridge of Sighs’ skyrocket into the U.S. Top 10 peaking at number seven on the charts.
In 2004 Fender chose to acknowledge Robin’s contribution to the success of the Stratocaster by releasing this limited edition Robin Trower Tribute Stratocaster. The release of this guitar marked both the 50th anniversary of the Stratocaster guitar, but also the 30th anniversary of Robin’s masterpiece album ‘Bridge of Sighs’.
As the certificate of authenticity states, these guitars originally shipped with the digitally remastered version of the ‘Bridge of Sighs’ album, an 8×10 of Robin, a copy of the ‘Living out of Time’ album (then new) and a DVD that included an interview with Robin as well as a Fulltone Deja-Vibe Mini FX pedal.
While our Trower comes to us in excellent condition, only the COA, users manual, Custom Shop strap, ashtray bridge cover and additional spring packaging are included with this Strat (see photos above). There is one very small ding on the lower edge of the body just below the input jack (see photos above).
This remarkable guitar has been freshly set up with .9-.42 strings with screaming low action and a fast straight neck. Ships in original Fender Custom Shop hard shell case.
