i like that he is having a signature strat, i think the strat is part of his identity (at least his younger and cooler one.)

I see the video that's posted in the NAMM thread, but i don't see anything about the specifics of the guitar there. Maybe I'm missing something?

hcueva is gonna be ticked when he sees that the people at fender call the pumpkins a mix of psychedelic and metal.
those cats at fender clearly have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to music.

...They might as well have Nicole Richie signature dildos.

And you know what Fender doesn't have? A David Gilmour '57 hotrod signature model with EMG pickups. This would probably sell like hotcakes.

All of his new ones are hardtails with some kind of DiMarzio rail pickup for all three single slots. They're probably Northern Ash and not Swamp since he said in that YouTube interview that he likes them heavy. But other than that I'm sure the specs will probably be identical to the '70s Reissue. (if that's indeed what they're gonna sell).

I'm thoughouly unexcited about a signature B0lly guitar. I'll hold out for the signature D'arcy bass that comes with an official Billy Corgan repliconated cybordroid to play it because he's not satisfied with the performance of his own band on their own instruments.

I believe you're right. I recently spoke about this and was wondering if the same guitar was painted again to be white w/black (the current most used axe of the 1st leg of tour)?

I wouldn't put it past Billy to do this, even though he's got hundreds of guitars. This particular one is his baby.

And yes, I agree with you - if they made his sig model the "I Love My Mom" yellow-style Strat, I would buy one no matter what. That is my favorite guitar with the "Born to Lose"/"Honk If You Hate People Too" battered Strat coming in a very close 2nd.

No, it was painted light blue, there are pictures of it everywhere. And additionally, this was not "his baby", his favorite was the sunburst 57 which was later covered in grey paint and bat stickers.
