Queens of the Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen talk about his new signature Jazzmaster in the Fender video below.

Based on Fender’s distinctive double-cutaway TC-90 Thinline guitar, the JA-90 puts Adkins’ own personal spin on the classic model, resulting in a single-cutaway, semi-hollow ash-body instrument all its own. Features include a mahogany set neck with a 12″-radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets, Seymour Duncan® Custom SP90-3 and Vintage SP90-1 “soapbar” pickups with volume and tone controls for each and three-way switching, a three-ply black/white/black pickguard and an Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with stop tailpiece. It comes in Crimson Red and Ebony transparent finishes.

It really was inevitable that Kenny Wayne Shepherd would have a signature stratocaster one day.  And no surprise that it would be a 60s styled sunburst stratocaster with a 12″ radius neck, perfect for blues rock. It looks like the stratocaster will be available from Fender come this September.

Maybe one unexpected twist is a racing stripe style paint job version of the strat inspired by Shepherd’s love of hot rods. (see photo below)
