Agave Stratocaster

Cuervo x Fender Agave Stratocaster

Agave StratocasterFender has partnered with Jose Cuervo to create the Cuervo x Fender Agave Stratocaster, made from the agave plant. With a 21-fret neck and fingerboard, the two-piece ’56 Stratocaster features genuine Fender hardware, a custom-engraved neck plate with Jose Cuervo inscription, hand-wound Fat ’50s neck, RWRP middle, and bridge pickups. The unique art guitar was designed and constructed by Fender Custom Shop Builder Paul Waller who traveled to Tequila, Mexico, in 2016 to tour the Jose Cuervo distillery and harvest agave materials. The beautifully crafted guitar weighs just 6.5 pounds and has a “quackiness” to its sound that make it a perfect tonal fit for surf music.
