Arborea's Purple Fender Stratocaster @ 51st Philadelphia Folk Festival

Arborea performed two sets of music at this year's 51st Philadelphia Folk Festival and as with most of our tours over the past 6 years, my Purple Fender Stratocaster is the most reliable instrument I perform with. She's made of parts...an early 90's American Strat body with a late 90's Strat Plus neck, Texas Special pickups, and a blocked off American Standard tremelo bridge. Photo by Frank Reis
