Fender Sessions: Tom Morello Talks ‘Soul Power’ Strat, Influences & Performs Improvised Set

Fender: This month’s edition of Fender Sessions: Tom Morello performs a powerful improvised set, talks influences and tells the story of his iconic “Soul Power” Strat.

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.
