Fender Announces H.E.R. Limited-Edition Stratocaster​

Fender Announces H.E.R. Limited-Edition Stratocaster​

Fender unveils a Blue Marlin finish for the historic H.E.R. Signature Stratocaster guitar—a launch that established H.E.R. as the first Black female signature artist in Fender’s 77-year history.

The guitar features personalized cutting edge specs that five-time Grammy winner H.E.R. prefers in a Stratocaster with the body boasting the striking debut colorway that emulates the brilliant blue of a marlin, complete with an iridescent finish that shifts in the light. With only 300 units made world-wide, this guitar is a true, special limited edition.

"I distinctly remember my father teaching me how to play my first blues scale on a Fender mini black-and-white Stratocaster. Filming this interview with him, reflecting on my musical journey, and the development of my second signature Fender guitar has been a surreal ‘pinch me’ moment. I designed my Limited Edition Stratocaster guitar with a color, shape and sound that is 100% my own so that young women and players from all backgrounds feel inspired to pick up this guitar, tap into their thoughts and create amazing music.” - H.E.R. on the Limited-Edition Strat

Fans of H.E.R. can also learn to play their favorite songs on the Fender Play App, including her hits like "Could’ve Been," "Every Kind of Way," "This Way," and more. Under H.E.R.’s Artist Spotlight, users can learn over 7 songs and 3 skills to play more like the 5-time Grammy award winner.
