The Fender Tom DeLonge Stratocaster gets a striking all-black re-design for this Black Friday. In July, Fender reintroduced the popular Tom DeLonge signature Stratocaster electric guitar in four different finishes.
Tom DeLonge Stratocaster Black Friday
This Fender Tom DeLonge Stratocaster exclusive Black Friday special edition has been announced on Instagram by the blink-182 guitarist himself. This limited edition is part of his ToTheStars brand.
This special edition, known as the TTS model, features a sleek, satin-style black finish across its body, complementing the black scratchplate, Seymour Duncan Invader pickup, hardtail block bridge with block saddles, output jack, and tuners. The design is enhanced by a vibrant red Knurled Flat-Top volume control, which stands out against the black scratchplate.
The guitar retains its clear-finished maple neck and the original signature oversized ’70s headstock. The contrast of the black tuners on the maple neck adds a unique charm, reminiscent of Fender’s metal-influenced designs, like the Jim Root signature Telecaster from 2007.
Some fans have suggested a matching headstock would be ideal, but the current design has its own appeal.
Details on the guitar’s specifications are still under wraps, but it’s expected to feature the usual treble bleed circuit on the volume control. This guitar is set to be a true collector’s item, with only 300 units being produced.
To secure one of these rare guitars, be ready to visit DeLonge’s ToTheStars website on Friday, November 24 at 9 am PST. Given its limited availability, this edition is expected to be in high demand.
