Fender 2020 Custom Shop Strat 20th Anniversary Relic Mary Kaye
Of all the rare, sought after custom model guitars introduced by Fender over the decades, few have inspired the kind of cult following that the "Mary Kaye" Stratocaster has. The translucent white, mid-'50s Strat, with its maple neck and distinctive gold hardware takes its name from legendary guitarist and Las Vegas performer, Mary Kaye.
Known as the “First Lady of Rock and Roll” for her guitar-driven, calypso-tinged, swing music, Kaye was a musical innovator who helped pioneer Vegas lounge music. Although, one of the most surprising aspects of the story of the "Mary Kaye" Strat, is that Kaye never really owned, and rarely played, the guitar that informally bears her name.
This Mary Kaye Strat has been through Fender's heavy relic process giving it a natural worn look, feel, and sound as if it has been played since Mary Kaye played hers.
