Product Description

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.

With its unique sound, vintage style and one-of-a-kind pickup switching, the Albert Hammond Jr Stratocaster is the perfect guitar for launching your own musical revolution.

This is a fantastic guitar. It’s so easy to play and feels great in your hands. You don’t need to be a fan of the Strokes to want this guitar, but who doesn’t like the Strokes?

A great guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have always loved 1970’s Fenders. My first Strat and Tele’s were 1973s. There were some problems with the build quality but they did have a dynamic sound and I loved them. The Albert Hammond jr. Strat is a beauty of a guitar. Fender has taken the basis of the 70s Strat and improved on it greatly. The large headstock is beautiful. The 3 bolt neck hold the tuning perfectly. The pickups are wonderful and have a terrific tone. Clean or dirty they really rock. In some guitars the 7.25 radius neck can be a problem as it frets out with low action but not here. No problem bending with a low action. The switching is interesting. You get a neck/bridge combination that’s very sweet. Once you get used to the switch being a bit different it’s not a problem. There is no trem arm. The bridge is locked down so if you want to use it, it needs to be set up. The neck on my guitar has a beautiful flame on the back and the rosewood fingerboard is gorgeous. This is a quality guitar.
