Nile Rodgers has written, produced, and performed on recordings that have sold more than 500-million albums globally. Every hit record he’s produced has shared one essential element: the used 1960 Fender hardtail Stratocaster Nile bought in a Miami music shop. Rarely is a single guitar so inseparably identified with its owner as The Hitmaker.

  • Alder body with Nitrocellulose Lacquer
  • Maple neck and fingerboard
  • Hitmaker Nile Rodgers Strat bridge
  • 4-bolt serialized neck plate with Custom Hitmaker logo
  • 11-hole chrome plated brass pickguard
  • White Speed control knobs
  • Hitmaker Nile Rodgers Strat pickups
  • Deluxe Limited-Edition hardshell case with embroidered Hitmaker logo

A unique body

The Hitmaker features a 1960 alder body that is uniquely smaller and more contoured than a typical vintage Strat. The beautiful Olympic White lacquer matches the finish Nile sprayed on the guitar himself just after he acquired it in the early days of Chic.

Stamp of approval

The custom ’59-profile one-piece maple neck has a 9.5" radius fingerboard, medium jumbo frets and a satin finish. A “Nile Rodgers & Chic" logo adorns the back of the headstock and a custom Hitmaker logo is stamped into the neck plate.

The look and sound of a Hitmaker

The Nile Rodgers Hitmaker single-coil Strat pickups are voiced to accurately replicate the quack, chime and bell-like clarity of the original Hitmaker. Other features include a hard-tail string-through bridge with period-correct bent-steel saddles, an eye-catching mirrored chrome-plated brass pickguard, locking Sperzel tuners and a set of white speed knobs.
