Cuervo is famous for pushing the boundaries of what this amazing plant can do. So it’s only fitting that they would partner with Fender® – one of the world’s most legendary and innovative instrument brands – to create the world’s first Agave Stratocaster®. Working with the extremely soft agave plant material presented a unique challenge. While the instrument features a pure agave body, 21-fret neck and fingerboard, the two-piece ’56 Stratocaster remains true to tradition with all-genuine Fender hardware, a custom-engraved neck plate with a Jose Cuervo inscription, and hand-wound Fat ’50s neck, RWRP middle and bridge pickups. The design process resulted in a unique art guitar that, in the true innovative spirit of the Fender Custom Shop, tests the limits of guitar craftsmanship.
