Unmistakable Blackmore Style
A pioneering master of neo-classical heavy rock, metal godfather Ritchie Blackmore is the man who gave the world the most imitated Stratocaster riff ever ("Smoke on the Water"), and his deft phrasing and unmistakable tone helped make the extended guitar solo an essential art form in itself. The Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster is based on his favorite '70s model and puts artful Blackmore Strat® style in your hands with distinctive features and modifications, including a graduated fingerboard scalloping, special pickups and more.
Features
  • Maple neck with “U” profile and “bullet” truss rod
  • Three-bolt “F”-stamped neck plate with Micro-Tilt™
  • 7.25”-radius rosewood fingerboard with graduated scalloping and 21 vintage-style frets
  • Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound Flat™ SSL-4 single-coil neck and bridge pickups (bridge pickup reverse wound/reverse polarity)
  • Non-active middle pickup
  • Vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge
  • Highlights

    Graduated Scalloped Fingerboard
    Graduated Scalloped Fingerboard

    Blackmore has long preferred this kind of specially scalloped fingerboard, on which the effect starts lightly at the fourth or fifth fret on the low E, A and D strings and immediately on the G, B and high E strings, gradually becoming more pronounced toward the upper reaches of the fingerboard.

    Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound™ Pickups
    Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound™ Pickups

    The formidable tone of the Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster comes from dual Seymour Duncan® Quarter Pound™ Flat SSL-4 single-coil Strat pickups, with reverse winding and reverse polarity on the bridge pickup for hum cancellation.

    Dummy Middle Pickup
    Dummy Middle Pickup

    With accurate and classic Blackmore style, the middle pickup on his signature Strat model is actually a non-active dummy pickup.

    Three-way Pickup Switch
    Three-way Pickup Switch

    The Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster features a three-way pickup switch that gives you the bridge pickup alone, the bridge and neck pickups together, and the neck pickup alone.

    Flush-Mount Dunlop® Strap Locks
    Flush-Mount Dunlop® Strap Locks

    For Blackmore-esque guitar strap security and style, his signature Stratocaster features distinctive flush-mount Dunlop® Strap Locks.

    Three-Screw “F”-Stamped Neck Plate
    Three-Screw “F”-Stamped Neck Plate

    In an authentic nod to early-1970s Fender style, the Ritchie Blackmore Stratocaster has a three-screw neck plate stamped with the stylized capital “F” of the traditional Fender script logo. The neck plate also features the Micro-Tilt™ neck angle adjustment mechanism.
