The Albert Lee signature model captured the attention of the guitar world a few years ago thanks to it's wild and modern offset body shape. It was designed for country virtuoso Albert Lee and whilst it absolutely nails those clean fat country tones that cut through the mix, it also handles gain really well.
Perhaps thanks to its ability to cut through the mix, the Albert Lee sounds great playing lead lines under a bit of mild overdrive or even high gain. It's got a 5 way pickup selector giving you massive tonal variety from full-on humbucking sounds to coil-tapped tones if you need a bit more 'twang' like the Country Boy himself.
Vintage Fulcrum Tremolo Bridge
The vintage Fulcrum Tremolo bridge is paired with die-cast tuners to keep your tone steady and stable despite the amount of aggressive pitch-bending and dive bombs. This rounds off a modern guitar with a distinct vintage edge to it.
Here's what Music Man have to say about the AL40 Albert Lee Signature:
The long-awaited Albert Lee model makes its debut in the Sterling by Music Man line in 2018. With its unique modern retro design and sleek angles, the Albert Lee model features a mahogany body with a comfortable Hard Maple neck and 2 Humbuckers with a 5-Way Pickup.
With its unique “retro-modern” offset design, the AL40 “Albert Lee” Signature model is one versatile instrument.
A dual Humbucker pickup configuration with 5 way switching, and Tone/Volume controls give the Albert Lee model a tremendous versatility and value at an incredible price point.
Fully Adjustable Fulcrum Tremolo
The vintage style tremolo bridge has a comfortable area to rest your palm on, and the solid saddles offer adjustments for height and intonation.
