Few could have imagined the impact that The Strokes would have on a generation of young guitarists picking up the instrument for the first time, and with its latest signature model Fender pay homage to Albert Hammond Jr, who with his reissue '72 Stratocaster went on to shape the guitar sound of the 2000's.
Designed to faithfully recreate Albert Hammond Jr's own guitar, this signature model features an Alder body and Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, finished in a traditional Olympic White. The Albert Hammond Jr Strat also a modern 'C' neck profile with 7.25" fretboard radius, combining the best of modern playability and vintage feel. The pickups are specially designed ceramic single coils that give you plenty of pure Strat tone, while the switching is unique to Albert Hammond Jr's signature model and not found on any other Fender guitar: pickup switch position four activates the neck and bridge pickups in tandem, while positions one and three are reversed from the traditional layout.
Additional vintage spec features include a 3 Bolt neck with Micro Tilt, larger 70's style headstock and bullet truss rod adjuster, and 'F' stamped Fender tuners. This guitar also includes a deluxe Fender gig bag.
