Pearl is a Fender Stratocaster Guitar. Strung with light tension strings over 3 single coil pickups, this guitar is a great blues/rocker. "Strats" are well known for their signature "quack". The sound is hard to describe but is easily recognizable. It can be heard on just about every Hendrix song ever recorded. They play fast and easy and Pearl is no exception. The pickups are hot and the quack can be switched out if desired. This makes Pearl a very flexible rock guitar.
