Tom Morello’s unique, powerful sounds – from gentle rhythms to screaming feedback, chaotic stutters, and more – require a very special Stratocaster. The Tom Morello “Soul Power” Stratocaster – based on the modified Designer Series Strat used during his time in Audioslave – features an alder slab body with binding and a “Modern C”-shape maple neck with 9.5″-14″ compound radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 medium-jumbo frets. Other features include a recessed Floyd Rose locking tremolo system, Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge humbucker, two Fender Noiseless pickups in the neck and middle positions, chrome pickguard, kill-switch toggle, locking tuners, matching painted headcap and iconic “Soul Power” body decal in the black Fender case.

This particular guitar is used but in excellent condition. Functionally, this guitar works perfectly and has had an after market Tremol-No added to lock down the floating tremolo system. The original parts are included and can easily be swapped out by a tech or luthier. The tuning machines are tight and hold tune properly, and the locking tremolo functions as intended. The action is low and fast and feels great locked in with the tremol-no, which has been professionally set up, and the truss rod move easily in both directions. The knob and the switch work perfectly with no stickiness or scratchiness, as does the kill switch. There are almost no discernible signs of use on the frets or the fingerboard.
Aesthetically, this guitar is very lightly used and looks great. There are no significant nicks or dings anywhere on the headstock or the body, and the gloss finish is still shiny. There are no marks on the back of the neck and the satin finish is still comfortable. The included “Soul Power’ decal has already been applied well and has no defects. all of the chrome hardware is still shiny with no signs of rust or corrosion.
Overall this guitar is in superb condition, and if you’ve had your eye on the Tom Morello Strat this is a great chance to get your hands on one, and even includes an after market Tremol-N0 setup if you’re not a fan or the vibrato and were planning on locking it down anyway. Don’t let this deal get away!
