The limited-edition guitar celebrates the pivotal recording with an all-over graphic of the stunning red, yellow, and blue album art, including matching pickguard, pickup covers, and knobs.

Primal Scream’s 1991 album featured a unique blend of indie-rock song writing and acid house-inspired production and was the band’s first commercial success, reaching number eight on the UK albums chart upon its release.

Executive Vice President of Fender Products Justin Norvell said, “Screamadelica is part of the fabric of modern rock, it is an honour to create this limited run of commemorative guitars which play just as impressive as they look”.

“This model is packed full of great features including Alnico V pickups for those crystal-clear highs and warm lows, and I can’t wait to see what players around the world create with this guitar,” he said.

The guitar boasts a variety of top-of-the-range features, including a Modern “C”-shaped maple neck with 9.5-inch radius pau ferro fingerboard, medium jumbo frets for modern playability and comfort, and vintage-voiced alnico V single-coil pickups to deliver that classic Fender tone.

Players can also enjoy a two-point synchronised tremolo, a custom Screamadelica neck plate, and a deluxe gig bag.

The guitar is available for USD $1,049.99 (AUD $1,899).
