Overview

The Fender Player Stratocaster HSS, seen here in a sleek black and featuring a Maple fretboard, marks a new standard for Fender.

Out with The Old, In with The New and Improved

Not content to rest on their laurels, Fender are constantly reworking and improving their products.

Extremely popular for many years, the Fender Standard series is now being replaced by the new Fender Player series which boasts new and improved specs for even better performance.

With its HSS pickup configuration, the versatile Stratocaster adds even more colour to your tonal palette.

Fender Player Stratocaster HSS MN Black Key Features:

  • New Player Series Humbucker and Single-Coil Pickups
  • 5-Way Pickup Switching
  • Synchronised Tremolo Bridge with Bent Steel Saddles
  • Modern “C” Shape Maple Neck
  • 9.5” Radius Maple Fretboard

Classic Stratocaster Design

Favoured for its bright, balanced and resonant tone with pronounced upper midrange and excellent sustain, Alder has been used to form the body of the Fender Player Stratocaster.

A key ingredient to the Fender Stratocaster’s popular and distinctive design is its double cutaway which provides easy reach of the upper frets.

Satin Finished, Comfortable Neck

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

With its modern “C” shape and satin finish on the back, this neck is extremely comfortable to play.

Atop the neck is a Maple fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius holding 22 medium jumbo frets for great all-round playability.

Versatile Electronics

Taking a step away from the traditional Stratocaster setup of three single-coil pickups, the Fender Player Stratocaster HSS is equipped with a New Player Series Humbucker in the bridge position.

Complementing the New Player Series Single-Coil Pickups found in the neck and middle positions, the humbucking pickup gives you a beefier tone and a bit more grunt where you need it for more hard and heavy tones.

A very versatile instrument, the Player Strat 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 tailoring of your tone, 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

Fender’s iconic Stratocaster electric guitar is synonymous with rock music. Played by such legends as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Eric Clapton and countless more, the Fender Strat is a piece of living music history.

With the Fender Player Stratocaster, classic style and modern features combine, giving you great playability and awesome sound.
