“A big part of finding the right instrument is luck,” says the Strokes’ Albert Hammond Jr. “That’s how it was for me — it was like my favorite guitar and I found each other, and it was meant to be.”

Hammond Jr.’s favorite guitar — a 1985 reissue of a ’72 Fender Stratocaster — has now been reproduced as Fender’s new Albert Hammond Jr. Signature Strat — and Fender and Hammond Jr. have even thrown in a few personal (and very cool) touches of the guitarist’s own design.
