Fender with H.E.R. Limited Edition Stratocaster Guitar


On the heels of her epic performance as Belle on ABC’s live-action special, Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration, the five-time Grammy winner H.E.R. is back at it again. In a continuation of her long standing collab with Fender, comes the debut of a striking new colourway for the historic H.E.R. Signature Stratocaster guitar – a launch that established H.E.R. as the first Black female artist in Fender’s 77-year history to launch a signature guitar.

Their latest collaboration is a new Blue Marlin finish for the Fender Limited H.E.R. Stratocaster. The guitar features the personalised cutting-edge specs she prefers in a Stratocaster with the body boasting the striking debut colourway 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. See below for more details on the announcement, including:

  • Quote from H.E.R. on the Limited Edition Stratocaster:
    • “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 colour, 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.”

Fans of H.E.R. can also learn to play their favourite 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.
