The Fender Stratocaster is such an iconic guitar, built for functionality, playability and reliability it has been a firm favourite for over 60 years. The Fender Player Stratocaster is a new line for 2018, building on the success of the Mexican Standard it offers an affordable way for everyone to experience what makes the Strat so special.
The traditional Alder body is typically well balanced and comfortable, as all Strat's are, and with a crisp Buttercream finish it looks real slick. It's super resonant and delivers a bell like high end, punchy mids and robust lows with flawless precision.
The Maple neck features a 9.5" radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. With a C shape profile and 22 medium jumbo frets, it offers a really comfortable playing experience; it's equally at home playing big chords or intricate lead work. The Pau Ferro fingerboard looks and feels great underhand and really plays into the modern take on a timeless classic vibe.
A duo of Player Series Alnico 2 Humbuckers flank a PS Alnico 5 single coil to provide classic Strat spank with a real modern growl. Offering a touch more bite than traditional Strat pickups, the Player Series are crisp and articulate. With a classic 2-point trem you can add some really sweet textures to your sound without compromising tuning stability.
Well-rounded and perfect for a broad range of styles, the Strat is the standard for gigging musicians, with amazing quality and playability they are ready to hit the stage or studio at any time.
