Dynamic R&B performer H.E.R. has wooed audiences and earned Grammys with her powerful performances and emotional songs, her smooth rhythms and slow-burning solos always at the forefront. The H.E.R. Stratocaster makes a statement as bold as the artist who inspired it: finished in dazzling Chrome Glow and featuring a mid-'60s 'C' shape maple neck, Vintage Noiseless pickups and an anodized aluminum pickguard, this guitar delivers effortless playability, classic Strat tone and extraordinary good looks.

Alder body finished in Chrome Glow
The dazzling Chrome Glow finish shines bright over an alder body, a classic Fender tonewood with a balanced sound perfect for almost any genre.
One-piece maple neck with 9.5" radius fingerboard
9.5" radius offers easy playability and smooth bending.
Vintage-style synchronized tremolo
One of Fender's most innovative designs, this six-point tremolo offers proper intonation, full adjustability and a wide array of cool vibrato sounds.
Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups
These noise-free pickups deliver clear and articulate Strat tone with the bell-like chime and warmth that made Fender an icon, without the 60-cycle hum typically associated with single-coil pickups.
Mid-'60s 'C' neck shape
Exceptionally comfortable, the mid-'60s 'C'-shaped neck profile is sculpted for a vintage feel: thinner at the first fret, thicker at the twelfth.
H.E.R. custom neck plate
This Strat features a custom neck plate engraved for H.E.R.
Over the past few years, singer/songwriter/guitarist H.E.R. has blazed a singular trail across the R&B landscape with a fresh, powerful sound that melds influences ranging from Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Jimi Hendrix to Eddie Van Halen, Santana and B.B. King. She emerged on the scene in 2016 with a series of well-received EPs that highlighted her soulful vocals and dynamic, slow-burning guitar solos. But it was her run at the 61st Grammy Awards – where she picked up trophies for Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance, and played an electrifying version of her ballad 'Hard Place' on a show-stopping see-through acrylic Fender Custom Shop Stratocaster – that made it clear we were witnessing an incredible artist with one-of-a-kind style (and impeccable taste in guitars).
To state the obvious: H.E.R. is not your typical R&B artist. And when it comes to writing and performing her music, she needs a guitar that's likewise unique in sound and style. Fender H.E.R. Stratocaster, finished in a stunning Chrome Glow and accented by an anodized aluminum pickguard, is that guitar.
H.E.R. Stratocaster plays as great as it looks, thanks to a traditional tonewood combination: an alder body paired with a one-piece maple neck and fingerboard. The neck is carved into a mid-'60s C-shape for maximum comfort and sports a 9.5" fingerboard radius for effortless bending. Other features include 21 Vintage Tall frets, a six-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo, vintage-style tuners and nickel/chrome hardware.
Sonically, the guitar conjures classic Fender tones (minus the hum!) via a trio of Vintage Noiseless Strat single-coil pickups controlled by a master volume, two tone knobs and a five-position blade switch. And while it might be hard to pull your eyes away from the guitar's gorgeous metallic finish, H.E.R. and Fender also threw in some more subtle aesthetic touches, including a matching headstock, multi-hued synthetic abalone dot fingerboard inlays and a custom neck plate engraved with original H.E.R. artwork.
It all adds up to a model that merges classic Fender design with singular modern dazzle, an instrument fit for an artist who sits boldly at the forefront of a new generation of players.
