The Albert Hammond Jr Stratocaster celebrates the unique sound and iconic style that continues to define generations of young guitarists starting bands in the back of their garages. When it came time for Albert Hammond Jr to lay down the guitar tracks for The Strokes' catalog as well as his solo work, which includes the critically acclaimed album, Francis Trouble, he reached for his 1985 reissue of a '72 Strat. As a unique touch, Fender has replicated Hammond's customized pickups switching: pickup switch position four activates the neck and bridge pickups in tandem, while positions one and three are reversed from the traditional layout. Hammond's signature graces the back of the large '70s-style headstock, while other '70s-inspired features include bullet truss rod nut, 3-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate with period-correct Micro-Tilt adjustment and a '70s-era logo.

Crafted for authentic Fender tone, the ceramic single-coil Stratocaster pickups are custom-designed to match Hammond's brash, visceral playing style. The traditional master volume and two tone controls are easily at hand, one for the neck pickup and one for the middle pickup. The vintage-style 6-saddle synchronized tremolo bridge keeps everything in tune. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck hosts a vintage-style 7.25"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, dual-wing string trees, vintage-style tremolo arm, chrome hardware, 3-ply Parchment pickguard and synthetic bone nut. read more
