Classic Fender Strat Design
Noted for its bright, balanced and resonant tone, pronounced upper midrange, fantastic sustain and sharp attack, Alder has long been a favourite body wood for Fender guitars and is used here on the Fender Player Stratocaster.
The double cutaway design of the Fender Strat is a signature of aspect of the iconic Stratocaster body profile and allows for easy reach of the higher frets; essential for high-reaching guitar solos and other adventurous forms of playing.
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 Pau Ferro fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius holding 22 medium jumbo frets for great all-round playability.
Pau Ferro shares many traits with Rosewood such as the familiar depth and warmth it imbues your tone with while the tighter grain and harder texture result in a smoother playing experience and slightly brighter sound.
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.
