A New Standard Stratocaster with Floyd Rose

Replacing the Fender Standard series, the new Fender Player series carries the mantle with new and improved specs.

Already an extremely versatile instrument, the Fender Stratocaster is available here with an HSS pickup configuration, giving you even more tonal options.

Equipped with Floyd Rose hardware, this Stratocaster delivers incredible performance that you can rely on.

Fender Player Stratocaster FR HSS MN Tidepool Key Features:

  • New Player Series Humbucker and Single-Coil Pickups
  • 5-Way Pickup Switching
  • Floyd Rose® Double Locking Tremolo Bridge
  • Floyd Rose® Locking Nut
  • Licensed Floyd Rose® Collared Tremolo Arm
  • Modern “C” Shape Maple Neck
  • 12" Radius Maple Fretboard

Classic Stratocaster Design

Long used by Fender for their electric guitar bodies, Alder is a fantastic tone wood noted for its bright, balanced and resonant tone along with the excellent sustain it facilitates.

Alder has been used to form the body of the Player Stratocaster FR HSS which features the great looking signature double cutaway guitar design. Not only does it look good but it grants easy access to the higher frets which is perfect for performing solos.

Attached to the body with a sturdy 4-bolt neck plate emblazoned with a stamped “F” logo is a 25.5” scale Maple neck.

A modern “C” shape neck profile and satin finish mean this neck is extremely comfortable to play while the 12” radius Maple fretboard is fitted with 22 medium jumbo frets, offering great all-around playability.

Floyd Rose Hardware

On the body of the Player Strat FR HSS, you’ll notice the Floyd Rose double locking tremolo bridge with accompanying Floyd Rose collared tremolo arm.

At the other end of the guitar, you’ll find the perfect companion to the bridge in the form of a Floyd Rose locking nut.

With this premium hardware, the Fender Player Stratocaster FR HSS boasts incredible string stability, sustain and awesome, dynamic tremolo action.

Versatile Electronics

Perfect for the modern guitarist that requires more raw power in their sound, the Player Stratocaster FR HSS breaks from the traditional three single-coil configuration and replaces the bridge pickup with a humbucker for some extra driving force.

Complementing the humbucker are two New Player Series single-coil pickups found in the neck and middle positions.

An extremely versatile guitar, the Player Strat FR HSS has five different options for using the pickups:

  • Position 1. Bridge Humbucking Pickup
  • Position 2. Middle Pickup and Inner Coil of Humbucker
  • Position 3. Middle Pickup
  • Position 4. Neck and Middle Pickup
  • Position 5. Neck Pickup

Classic Stratocaster single-coil tone combined with the heavier, chunkier sounding power of a humbucker.

For further tone tailoring, you have a master volume control along with two tone controls – one for the neck and middle pickups and the other for the humbucking bridge pickup.

Return of a Rock Legend

Played by such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and countless more, the Fender Stratocaster electric guitar is synonymous with rock music.

With the Fender Player Stratocaster FR HSS, classic style and modern features combine with premium hardware, giving you fantastic performance that you can rely on.
