IRON MAIDEN's DAVE MURRAY Collaborates With FENDER On California Series Stratocaster

IRON MAIDEN guitarist Dave Murray has teamed up with Fender for a new signature model, dubbed the Dave Murray California Series Stratocaster.

The Dave Murray California Series Stratocaster is inspired by Murray's longtime onstage go-to guitar, combining time-honored Strat tradition with the modern roar of three Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups, the fast feel of a compound-radius fingerboard, and the high-performance reliability of a Floyd Rose bridge and nut.

According to Fender, the new guitar should hit retailers' shelves in mid-February.

IRON MAIDEN is believed to be putting the finishing touches on its new studio album with longtime producer Kevin Shirley for a 2015 release.

MAIDEN's 15th studio album, "The Final Frontier", sold 63,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to enter The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 4.
