Josh Klinghoffer Tours Fender Custom Shop


Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer recently stopped by the Fender Custom Shop in Corona, Calif., to pick up a few guitars that Master Builder Jason Smith was working on for him.

Klinghoffer left with four 1960 Fender Stratocasters and a ’69 Strat that he is using in the studio and on the Chili Peppers’ upcoming tour.

The band’s slate of summer dates begins April 9 at the Fonda Theatre and continues past Coachella to the Orion Music + More festival in Detroit (June 8-9) and the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Del., (June 21-23).
