About Fender Player Stratocaster Guitars:
Behold, the Fender Player Stratocaster electric guitar, a perfect blend of vintage style and modern features. It replaces the Fender Standard Strat, also known as the Mexican Stratocaster, one of the most popular Fender electric guitar models in history. While it seems like a difficult task, replacing one of the top guitar models of all time, Fender introduced the Player Series Stratocaster in June 2018 with just that in mind. The Fender Player Strat features a refined body shape with more historically accurate curves and vintage-inspired finishes. Its popular Modern C-shaped maple neck's comfortable contours and smooth finish make it easy to play and ideal for most playing styles. The Player Stratocaster has 22 medium jumbo frets on its contemporary 9.5”-radius fingerboard. Its updated 2-point tremolo design has smoother travel for enhanced playing feel while giving the Player Strat rock-solid tuning stability. This Mexican Stratocaster is built to tight tolerances and designed to be played for years to come.
The Fender Player Stratocaster is available in three pickup configurations. The Player Strat has 3 single-coil pickups, Leo Fender's original design. For tonal variety, the Player Stratocaster is also available in HSS with a humbucker at the bridge, and HSH with bridge and neck humbuckers. Other features on the Fender Player Strat include master volume and tone controls, 5-way pickup position switch, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt F-stamped neck plate. The Fender Player Stratocaster is the real deal. It's as Fender as it gets. Own your tone and create something new with the Fender Player Strat today.
The most popular Fender Player Stratocaster features three single-coil pickups (SSS). It delivers all the inspiring sound Fender is known for. This classic single-coil pickup tone, with bell-like high end, punchy mids and robust low end combined with crystal-clear articulation, is one of the foundations of electric guitar sound. The Fender Player Stratocaster single-coil pickup sound can be found in many popular music genres, from jazz and blues to punk and surf rock. Its 5-way position switch gives you quick access to each single-coil pickup individually, as well as the "Strat quack" sound of the bridge/middle and neck/middle cominations in position 2 and 4.
On the Fender Player Stratocaster HSS, the Player Series humbucking bridge pickup sounds huge and warm, while the single-coil Stratocaster middle and neck pickups are crisp and articulate. It is authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The Fender Player Stratocaster HSS is ready to serve your musical vision. Featuring dual humbuckers, the fat-sounding Player Strat HSH keeps a single-coil pickup handy in the middle position for a little spank or a little twang. The Fender Player Stratocaster HSH is versatile enough to handle any style of music and it’s the perfect platform for creating your own sound.
