Product Description

The S.U.B by Sterling Albert Lee, Black is a signature Sterling model by highly respected and talented guitarist Albert Lee. Lee's need for super fast playing and technical virtuosity, are incorporated into this signature guitar with its maple neck which allows for quick, smooth navigation of the fingerboard. The AL40's fingerboard is made from jatoba, which enhances the sound with excellent clarity and good levels of warmth. The body is crafted from mahogany, for a rich and resonant tone that delivers plenty of grind and bite, and it is powered by a pair of SBMM Humbuckers for a heavy, well-rounded sound. The S.U.B by Sterling Albert Lee is also equipped with a vintage style Fulcrum Tremolo which allows full control over dive-bombs, and for a retro rock appearance it is finished in Black with a matching black pickguard.

Loaded With Music Man Electronics

Equipped with a pair of creamy Music Man Humbuckers, the Albert Lee S.U.B guitar's bridge pickup offers an excellent midrange and is incredibly full sounding. The neck pickup produces a heavier, rich sound, and with 5-way switching you can create the perfect mix of tones for a dynamic performance. The vintage Fulcrum Tremolo bridge is paired with the die cast tuners to keep your tone steady and stable despite the amount of aggressive pitch-bending and dive bombs.

Maple Neck & Jatoba Fingerboard

The AL40's neck is made from hard maple, which provides bright tones with plenty of twang, as well as excellent levels of sustain. The maple brings tight tones with sizzling highs, and the smooth feel allows fast navigation between notes. The neck is bolted on which brings added snap, and is also paired with a jatoba fingerboard. The jatoba enhances the guitar with good sonic warmth and a clear ringing tone, as well as a beautiful, natural wood grain.

Crafted With Mahogany Body

The Sterling Albert Lee guitar's body is crafted from mahogany, which works exceptionally well with punchy rock music and heavy styles. The mahogany delivers good levels of resonance, and has a rich, full bodied tone with plenty of warmth which lets your tone ring out for longer. For a well rounded tone that is not short of grind and bite, the durable, mahogany body will certainly deliver for a long time.
