FOR THE NEXT GENERATION
While H.E.R. is an accomplished drummer, pianist and bassist, she still sticks close to the guitar, as her fiery attack, penchant for virtuosic solos and mastery of melody set her apart from the rest. In celebration of her vision and impact on the popular music of today, Fender is introducing the limited-edition H.E.R. Stratocaster.
Featuring a brilliant Blue Marlin finish inspired by fishing trips with her dad, a pair of Vintage Noiseless Stratocaster pickups to access the sound of her icons and a comfortable mid-’60s “C”-shaped neck, this signature model is definitely as unique as she is. As H.E.R.’s second namesake Fender model, it also marks a milestone for the next generation of female artists.
“I’m seeing a lot of women playing guitar and killing it,” she said. “I absolutely love to see that. I think we need more women who are producing, more women on the drums, more women on the bass, the guitar. I think we’re not shedding light on those women and I hope that I continue to inspire.”
