a Stratocaster that is somehow a hybrid between the Strats he uses... basically whatever gets his sound down, for a reasonable price.

Should be offered in

wornout Sunburst
wornout White
Chili Pepper Red

You know a hybrid is a mix. You can't have a strat/strat hybrid.

I do not really like the RHCP, but hell everyone else already has one why not him.

Well his models are from different years (the nazi's took off his info at wikipedia so I don't know exactly which) so I'm just saying mix the parts for the best approximation..

or just do one of his main/liking.

honestly, I'd be amazed if anyone said they cared. Get a strat, a can of spraypaint, and a face mask and do it yourself.

i belive they asked him to before, but he wants his sounds to be unique and original. I mean 62 strats are sooooooo expensive and not that many people can afford those.

Hell yes a John Frusciante signature guitar!



His playing styles are awesome, and I feel that if the bassist from Green Day can get a signature instrument, John should have one as well. I think he uses 62' vintage reissue guitars with slightly different pickups, and I know for fact he uses an MXR Micro Amp to boost their output a bit.
Main setup:

ESP Eclipse
PRS Torero SE
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster head, 2x12 cab
FX: Crybaby Slash Wah, Ibanez TS9x, Mesa Boogie Throttle Box, Boss TU-2, BF-3, DD-3, PS-6, RC-3, etc.

They would never be able to make a strat that sounds just like the ones he uses. The ones he uses are aged and are really high quality, making a sig with the same build quality would only make it even more expensive, and its not like they don't still make the colors he uses.

Well a normal strat would do. To get his sound you only have to worry about the thousands and thousands of dollars worth of amps and effects he uses.

Not having a signiture makes him even more unique. He plays sweet vintage Strats, not new-trying-to-be-old strats that Fender will supply him with!

Read this:

John Frusciante was offered a signature guitar by Fender a while ago. He turned it down because it was too much of a 'rockstar' type of thing to do. Believe me, he's been on Fender's radar for a while.

Well, Guitar Geek lists only 5 guitars...

a '62 Strat, a '55 Strat, two 60's Teles and a Gretsch White Falcon from the 50s.

The strats are just strats. Look for the RI's. The Teles are Teles. The White Falcon is a White Falcon.

His effects and amps would be more influential in his specific tone, I'd say. Aside from the White Falcon, they're all SC guitars, and Gretsch humbuckers are low-output.

They don't have to copy the sound then. Give me a guitar with the name John Frusciante on it and I'll be cool. Made by Fender of course for all you smartasses with a sharpy

They've offered John a sig guitar but John denied it, saying it was too rockstar-like.

Buy a decent 3 colour sunburst Strat (try and get one with nitro laquer so you can relic it a bit if you really want to go to extremes) and replace the pickups with some '57/'62's, that should get you close-ish.

But if you want a John sig guitar, it shouldn't be red.

Sig guitars are seriuosly overrated and overpriced. In many cases, these sig guitars (as bought by the original artist) are off=the-rack guitars that they're performed a few mods to. Then the mother company grabs onto it, and sells that exact guitar as a 'sig' version at double the price of the standard version.

Damn...you beat me to the ebay John Frusciante link....

His main guitar is his 1962 fender stratocaster 3-burst. For the same tone, he uses Seymour Duncan SSL-1 pickups (50's sound).
The body is nitrocellulose meaning it is a thin coating paint and lacquer; your guitar is probably a poly coat. The reason why this means something is, it will age like John's, and sound like John's. He also (mentioned before uses a micro amp, which is really handy because it boosts the output signal. (and probably the most useful pedal out there).
The sound of the micro-amp can be found in can't stop, and almost always live.
Also, you would need to chip away at the top-right of the body exposing raw wood (as a main characteristic of the guitar). Hope this helps people who are looking for that specific sound!
