The Music Man Albert Lee SSS Hardtail guitar has a thermally-treated roasted neck that not only looks great but adds dimensional stability and resistance to temperature, humidity changes and warping. It has reduced density while maintaining stiffness for a lighter neck with sufficient strength. The roasted neck offers increased resonance, less damping, and clearer tone. The heating process also gives a microstructure similar to naturally aged woods with lower moisture content and eliminates the need for hazardous chemical treatments.
With a roasted neck, Albert's unique design looks great, is incredibly comfortable to play, and rules at belting out raucous rockabilly! Southern ash body with a string-through-body, hardened-steel bridge is joined with a special 5-bolt joint to the selected roasted maple neck with maple fingerboard for amazing resonance and sustain. Schaller M6-IND locking tuners and Music Man strings-thru-the-body bridge of chrome plated, hardened steel with vintage steel saddles. 3 Seymour Duncan custom-wound single-coil pickups for country twang and gravelly crunch.
