This Fender Limited Edition H.E.R. Stratocaster in Blue Marlin weighs 8 lbs 2 oz. This is a stunning Stratocaster, equally as beautiful as the music created by the Artist that inspired it!
H.E.R. is relatively new to the scene but has been growing in popularity thanks to incredible songs, tasty guitar playing, and a series of Nation-Wide INsurance ads that showcase her abilities. A great vocalist that weaves interesting chords together AND can play soulful leads, HER's music is as worthy of checking out as this Limited Edition Strat!
The body is made from Alder, the most often used tonewood throughout the history of Fender. Finished in Blue Marlin with a Matching Headstock, this is one of the coolest-looking Strats we have seen in quite some time!
The neck is made from 1 piece of Maple and carved to a Mid-60s C Profile. A 9.5" fingerboard radius and Vintage Tall Frets make this a highly-playable Strat, no matter the position. 1.65" nut width and 25.5" scale length add to the familiar feel. A Satin Back of the neck Finish keeps things smooth and dry.
A set of Fender Vintage Noiseless Single Coil Pickups are the same you'll hear in the Eric Clapton Strat. These pickups capture the vintage goodness but with none of the 60-cycle hum, making them great in any and all situations. A master volume, 2 tone controls, and a 5-way pickup selector switch.
