Fender announces the launch of the Juanes Stratocaster guitar, a collaboration with multi-Grammy and Latin Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter, and guitarist Juanes.
On the heels of his latest album release, Vida Cotidiana (praised by Rolling Stone as “His best album yet!”), the Juanes signature guitar captures the essence of his sound, tone, and look – a distinctive blend of pop, rock, and metal fused with the unique folkloric sounds of Colombia, as well as his passion for innovation, culture, and philanthropy. Regarded as a leading trailblazer for Latin music and a champion for social transformation, Juanes will give back by donating all artist proceeds to his foundation, Mi Sangre, which empowers new generations and fosters a culture of peace in Colombia and beyond.
Born in Medellin, Colombia, Juanes began his musical journey as a self-taught guitar player at the young age of seven. After honing his skills and creating his own style of guitar playing– combining elements from the rock world with his Colombian roots–Juanes embarked on a solo career and released his debut studio album, Fíjate Bien in 2000 which earned him a field-leading seven Latin Grammy nominations and three Latin Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist. Juanes has since garnered over two dozen American and Latin Grammy awards, sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and been hailed by TIME as “One of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.”

Known for his preference for individual notes and riffs that stand out even within chords, the Juanes Stratocaster captures his unique sound with custom-voiced noiseless single-coil pickups to achieve clear tones and note distinction. His left and right-hand technique, combined with the use of a Mid-Boost Preamp with an S-1 Switch and a modern-voiced humbucker pickup, allows his guitar playing to act as a secondary voice, sending a powerful message alongside his vocal lyrics. The mid-boost preamp amplifies his sound and highlights the right midrange frequencies, making his chord changes stand out and ensuring his music resonates from verse to chorus to bridge and beyond. With its alder body featuring a stunning, moon-reminiscent “Luna White” Satin finish, an ode to his oldest daughter, Luna, which means “moon” in Spanish, this guitar exudes elegance and style.
