QR–Cure–Quizzing Realms–343

Fender, that famous manufacturer of guitars, especially the Stratocaster electric guitar, which has several collections of it released.

This is exactly one such signature Fender Squier XXXXXX Electric Guitar Strat. The blocked-out part is the artiste’s name. Identify him.

Hint: He is the first from his country to be bestowed with this honour.

Further hint (not much of a hint): The following are some of the features of the guitar.

  • Alder body
  • Maple veneer
  • Maple neck with slim C back shape
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Nut width 1.65
  • Neck Radius 9.5
  • 6105 Medium Jumbo Frets
  • Duncan Designed HSH Pickup Configuration
  • Available in Emerald Green finish , Deep Purple Finish , Blue and Red
  • Sperzel Licensed Locking Tuners
  • Tremolo Bridge with solid saddles

A better hint, making it much easier: This guitar is available only in India. Oh, and I think you can see his signature on the guitar too!

Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!

PS: Apropos what Kapinjal Chowdhury said regarding QR 341. A lot of people tried to answer the question on several pages of Facebook. As I have stated earlier, it is becoming increasingly difficult to reply to all of them, or even keep track of them! That’s the first reason I haven’t mentioned Mit Chowdhury’s name as one of those who answered. The second reason, of course, was that the answer was not correct. There’s a significant difference between Bengali bands and bands from Kolkata.


Three answers, and only two correct. This is indeed Ehsaan Noorani, from the Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio.


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
