What we say:
Fender celebrate Strokes guitarist and solo artist Albert Hammond Jr with a signature Stratocaster.
Albert is a traditional man at heart and his guitar echoes this. An Alder body is matched up to a C-shaped Maple neck with a very vintage 7.25" radius Rosewood fingerboard for a feel that is straight form the Golden Age of Strats. 21 frets further this retro sensibility, though the frets are medium jumbo, a nice concession to modernity.
Unusually, the tremolo arm id not included with this Strat, no doubt a preference of Hammond's. The bridge itself is a vintage type and comes set flush with the body, increasing sustain and tuning stability.
Albert has requested a set of custom wound ceramic single coil pickups for his Strat. These sound hotter than standard Strat pickups whilst not altering the classic response and dynamic you'd hope to get. Rock styles and lead playing benefits from the additional heat.
