Authentic Fender tone with a modern edge.
The inspiring sound of this Player Series Stratocaster is one of the foundations of Fender. Featuring this classic sound—bell-like high end, punchy mids and robust low end, combined with crystal-clear articulation—the Fender Player Stratocaster is packed with authentic Fender feel and style. It’s ready to serve your musical vision, it’s versatile enough to handle any style of music and it’s the perfect platform for creating your own sound. The Fender Player Series Stratocaster replaces the Standard Series Strat, one of the most popular guitars of all time. So, you can imagine that Fender took the design of the Player Strat quite seriously. Fender Player Stratocaster guitars offer several upgrades over their predecessors.
This Mexican Strat model with pau ferro fretboard features three single-coil Fender Player Stratocaster pickups. If you're looking for the HSS version with a humbucker and two single-coil pickups, see the Fender Player Stratocaster HSS with pau ferro fretboard. If you're looking for the HSH configuration with two humbuckers and a single-coil pickup in the middle position, see the Fender Player Stratocaster HSH with pau ferro fretboard. If you're looking for warmer tone and a darker-color fingerboard, you'll find the same pickup variations, SSS, HSS and HSH, available for the Fender Player Stratocaster with maple fretboard.
Respecting heritage while maintaining innovative spirit, the power trio of Player Series single-coil pickups are crisp and articulate—it’s authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The “Modern C”-shaped maple neck’s comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. By adding a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5”-radius fingerboard we’ve made it easier to express yourself musically. The updated 2-point tremolo design has smoother travel for enhanced playing feel while simultaneously giving you rock-solid tuning stability since there’s less friction against the posts.
Other Player Series Strat features include master volume and tone controls, a 5-way pickup switch, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt “F”-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal—as Fender as it gets.
