About this product
J.W. Black always thought his time at Fender was completed, until he got the call to design a guitar for Fender Custom Shop’s 30th anniversary in 2017. Outside of his work with artists for Fender Custom Shop, J.W. built guitars for a large number of doctor/lawyer clientele. “They were a weekend warrior guitar player collector group, and when you talked to them, you knew they were making a special gift for themselves,” he said.
J.W.’s Founders Design Stratocaster is inspired by this FMT “figured maple top” doctor/lawyer model he became known for. The ‘50s-style Stratocaster features a lightweight ash body with a Tobacco Burst color.

The sounds he created with his Strat® informed his inventive technique—and in turn his songwriting—in a synergistic...
