In 1954, the revolutionary Boeing 707 jetliner made its first flight. As the first successful commercial jet airliner, it changed the world by allowing people to connect comfortably and at previously unimaginable speed across great distances. The same year, Leo Fender introduced his second solid-body guitar, a contoured, streamlined, and modern tone machine named after the greatest technical feats of the time, the jets that sliced through the stratosphere. The Stratocaster became the preferred instrument for jet-setting musicians the world over. This limited-edition series of guitars honors both achievements with two special and unique Strats from the Fender Custom Shop—the “dream factory” where elite builders create distinctive guitars.
Boeing Totem Spruce-Top Stratocaster
This vintage-inspired guitar has a natural spruce top that is laser-engraved with the classic 1926 Boeing totem logo. Spruce was often used in the constructions of early airplanes, including the first Boeing plane, the Model 1 B & W. The contrasting pick guard is made from fuselage material reclaimed from retired Boeing 747 jumbo jets. Fine craftsmanship is apparent in every detail of this special instrument.
Boeing Jet Green Stratocaster
The green finish on this unique guitar is an exact Fender color match for the protective primer applied to contemporary airplanes, with a satin polyurethane top coat for protection. The contemporary design includes such features as locking tuners and a modern tremolo bridge. The neck is natural maple, and the pick guard is made from hand-selected fuselage material reclaimed from retired Boeing 747 jumbo jets.
