John Frusciante’s 1961 Fender Stratocaster (Fiesta Red)access_time First seen circa 2005
This is one of the guitars John bought just prior to Stadium Arcadium, most likely to have something on hands available as a backup for his 1962 Stratocaster.
This Stratocaster was made in 1961, and features fiesta red finish and a rosewood fretboard. The pickups in it are most likely original, although there’s a possibility that John replaced them with Seymour Duncan SSL-1s like in his two main Strats.
John used this guitar quite a lot during the Stadium Arcadium tour, although he did not use it on the record itself.
