- Synchronised Tremolo Bridge with Bent Steel Saddles

Classic Stratocaster Style
For the body of the Fender Player Stratocaster, Alder has been used due to its bright and balanced, resonant tone with great upper midrange, sustain and sharp attack.
Along with giving the Stratocaster its instantly recognisable body shape, the double cutaway design allows for easy reach of the higher frets which is essential when performing guitar solos and other high-reaching forms of playing.
Fast and Comfortable Neck
A traditional 4-bolt neck plate with a stamped “F” logo attaches the 25.5” scale length Maple neck to the Fender Player Strat’s body.
Boasting a satin finish on the back with a modern “C” profile, this neck provides you with a smooth, fast and comfortable playing experience.
Its Maple fretboard has a modern 9.5” radius and holds 22 medium jumbo frets for great, all-around playability.
A 2-point-synchronised tremolo bridge holding bent steel saddles can be found on the body providing great intonation and awesome vibrato action with the tremolo arm attached.
On the headstock there are six standard cast sealed tuning machines that provide you with speedy, secure and precise tuning of your strings.
A synthetic bone nut can be found at the top of the neck, preventing string binding while offering great sustain and bright organic tone.
New Player Series Pickups
Providing you with incredible, classic Stratocaster tone is a set of three New Player Series Single-Coil pickups.
Known for its versatility, the Stratocaster offers a wide variety of tones for you to play around with. The 5-way pickup switching allows you to use to choose how you want to use the three pickups:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup
- Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
You can further tailor your sound using the two tone knobs (one for the neck and middle pickups and the other for the bridge pickup) along with the Master Volume knob.
With so much sonic potential, it’s no wonder the Fender Stratocaster continues to be so popular after its first introduction back in the 1950s!
