Music Man guitars are known for being comfortable to play, but they also happen to be some of the most well constructed, precision made instruments in the world. I am continuously impressed by the level of quality that can be found in all aspects of their guitars.
Excellent pickups and hardware, beautiful wood selection, and some of the most well carved necks available. Just look at the fret work on these things! Absolutely flawless.
The Albert Lee signature model is as elegant as it is versatile. The ash body/maple neck combination produces a sharp, articulate tone with plenty of snap on the high end and a nice thick ‘bark’ on the lower registers.
Albert Lee’s signature body shape is visually striking, while contoured for maximum comfort. The P90 version of the Albert Lee uses 3 custom wound Seymour Duncan MM90 single coil pickups with a 5-position selector switch. This electronic configuration gives the guitar a tonal range not unlike a Stratocaster, but with a slightly thicker, deeper sound. Works for me!
