Tash Sultana Becomes First Australian to Have Fender Signature Guitar

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana unveiled their signature Fender Stratocaster, making them the first Australian to have a signature guitar with Fender.

The guitar, which is available now worldwide, is finished in vibrant transparent cherry and furnished with all-gold hardware, including a custom “skull” neck plate. It's also outfitted with Yosemite single-coil Stratocaster pickups and the Double Tap™ humbucking bridge pickup.

“When I was a kid I had this little plastic red guitar that I used to pretend to shred solos on, fast forward 20 years and now it’s real,” Sultana wrote on Instagram. “To have my own guitar line is something well and truly beyond anything I ever imagined.”

“Fender is thrilled to be partnering with Tash Sultana on their signature Stratocaster,” EVP of Fender Products Justin Norvell said in a statement. “We collaborated with Tash every step of the way to ensure their signature model has the capability to emulate the unique tones they create on stage. The pickup combination offers a wide tonal variety that lends itself to the vast tonal palette required for building complex loops just like Tash does. Tash’s unique style of playing is an inspiration for young artists everywhere to push their creative boundaries with the guitar and not be afraid to chase their dreams.”

Tash Sultana's signature Stratocaster is priced at $1,099.99 and can be purchased on the Fender website.
