Recognized for his incredible funk chops and inventive lead work, guitarist, producer, and arranger Cory Wong’s soulful playing with Vulfpeck, as well as his Grammy-nominated solo work have earned him a loyal following and led to sold-out arena performances. 

When asked about the new colours, he said: “I’ve wanted to release the Cory Wong Stratocaster in other colours since the original Sapphire Blue Transparent version was released in 2021. I'm a visual person and believe the look of a guitar can affect the approach one takes to playing it. Certain instruments can draw things out of a musician, and the vibe of the instrument definitely plays a role in that. With the release of these two new colours, my goal was to provide players with a guitar that exudes a bright, fun energy.”
