Fender Introduces The Wayne Kramer Stratocaster


Fender has introduced a replica of the starred-and-striped Stratocaster guitar that MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer used back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It bears his distinctive U.S. flag finish, with a red-and-white striped body and white-stars-on-blue-background pickguard and headstock. Here's what Fender has to say...
No band epitomized late '60s-era proto-punk more than Detroit's loud, radical and electrifying MC5. And no one member epitomized the MC5 better than incendiary guitarist Wayne Kramer.
As the Motor City quintet (hence MC5) incited audiences to near riots during their politically charged era, Kramer embodied his band's anti-establishment politics by wielding a red-white-and-blue-painted Stratocaster with wild abandon. The guitar was Kramer's unambiguous statement that his raw brand of rock 'n' roll made him the real patriot amid the tumult of Vietnam, the 1968 Democratic National Convention and the rest of the volatile decade.
The MC5 was equally volatile, playing pounding, visceral rock 'n' roll and generally being as turbulent as the city and times they came from. 1969 debut Kick Out the Jams remains one of rock's most influential albums--a garage rock masterpiece and hard-rock milestone that presaged punk by half a decade.
Kramer was subsequently elevated to proto-punk-godfather status. He was named one of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time by Rolling Stone, which described Kramer's MC5 sound by saying that he and co-guitarist Fred "Sonic" Smith "funneled Sun Ra's sci-fi jazz through twin howitzers." Kramer's howitzer was a Stratocaster, and he still rocks one today.
Special features include a roaring Seymour DuncanĀ® '59 humbucking middle pickup and a commemorative neck plate engraved with "This Tool Kills Hate." Other features include an alder body, lacquer body finish, maple neck with C shape and large '70s-style headstock, 21-fret rosewood fingerboard with 7.25" radius and vintage-style frets, vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster neck and bridge pickups, American Vintage hard-tail string-through-body bridge, Fender/SchallerĀ® vintage-style "F" tuners and chrome hardware. Deluxe gig bag included.
