The Fender Player Stratocaster, seen here in a sleek, cool looking Black with a Maple fretboard, represents a new standard for Fender.
The New Standard
Ever committed to improving their incredible guitars, Fender have introduced the new Fender Player Series which is set to carry on where the Fender Standard Series left off.

This iteration of the Fender Player Stratocaster sports the classic three single-coil pickup configuration along with all the traditional features that have made the Stratocaster such a long-lasting, beloved electric guitar after all these years.
Fender Player Stratocaster MN Black Key Features:
- New Player Series Single-Coil Pickups
- 5-Way Pickup Switching
- Synchronised Tremolo Bridge with Bent Steel Saddles
- Modern “C” Shape Maple Neck

Classic Fender Strat Design
Due to its bright, balanced and resonant tone, pronounced upper midrange, fantastic sustain and sharp attack, Alder has been used in many Fender guitars and is present here on the Fender Player Stratocaster.
Not just for good looks; the iconic double cutaway design of the Fender Stratocaster allows for easy reach of the higher frets which is essential for those high-reaching guitar solos and other and adventurous lead guitar licks.
Satin Finished, Comfortable Neck
A sturdy 4-bolt neck plate featuring a stamped “F” logo attaches a 25.5” scale Maple neck to the Fender Player Strat’s body.
With its modern “C” profile and satin finish back, this neck is smooth, fast and 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.
On the body of the Fender Player Stratocaster is a 2-point synchronised tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles allowing for great whammy-bar action while providing great intonation.
Up on the headstock are standard cast sealed tuning machines giving you speedy, precise and secure tuning of your strings while the synthetic bone nut prevents binding of the strings while offering great sustain.
New Pickups with Versatile Switching
Giving the Fender Player Stratocaster its incredible voice is a set of three New Player Series Single-Coil pickups.
A five-position blade allows you to select how you want to use the SSS pickup configuration:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup
- Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
For further shaping of your sonic output there’s a Master Volume knob and two Tone knobs; one for the neck and middle pickups and the other for the bridge pickup.
With so many options, the Stratocaster provides a huge variety of tones – no wonder it’s been one of the world’s most popular guitars since first being introduced back in 1954!
