Overview

The Fender Player Stratocaster, seen here in a warm Buttercream with a Maple fretboard, sets a new standard for Fender guitars.

The New Standard from Fender

Boasting improved specs and a new range of colours, the Fender Player series is here to carry the torch lit by the older Fender Standard line, and in doing so, set a new standard for Fender.

With a classic trio of single-coil pickups and a number of other traditional features along with some modern enhancements, the new Fender Player Stratocaster is a great addition to the legacy of the Strat.

Fender Player Stratocaster MN Buttercream Key Features:

  • New Player Series 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 Style

Fender have crafted the body of the Player Stratocaster from Alder. Due to its bright, balanced and resonant tone which provides great upper midrange, sustain and sharp attack, Alder has long been one of Fender’s favourites.

While giving the Stratocaster the instantly recognisable body shape you know and love, the double cutaway design allows for easy reach of the higher frets.

This improved access is essential for high-reaching, speedy guitar solos and adventurous lead guitar licks.

Fast, Smooth and Comfortable Neck

Using a traditional 4-bolt neck plate with a stamped “F” logo, Fender have attached a Maple neck to the body of the Stratocaster.

The neck also boasts a modern “C” profile and a satin finished back and a result, you get a fabulously fast, smooth and comfortable playing experience.

Furthermore, atop the Maple neck is a matching Maple fretboard that features a modern 9.5” radius and holds 22 medium jumbo frets giving you great all-around playability.

Great Hardware

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 Fender Player Series Pickups

For new and improved tone, Fender have equipped the Fender Player Stratocaster with three new Player Series single-coil Stratocaster pickups.

A 5-way pickup selector switch gives you a wide range of tones to play with allowing you to select the pickups as you choose from the following combinations:

  • Bridge Pickup
  • Bridge and Middle Pickup
  • Middle Pickup
  • Middle and Neck Pickup
  • Neck Pickup

You’ll also find two separate tone controls and a master volume knob for further sonic sculpting to get that perfect sound.

With so much tonal potential, it’s clear why the Stratocaster is so versatile and popular with such a huge range of popular artists.

A Modern Classic

The favourite guitar of countless legendary guitarists, the Fender Stratocaster has inspired millions since it was first introduced back in 1954.

Still going strong today, the Fender Player Stratocaster combines classic style and modern features for a great sounding electric guitar with amazing playability – all at a great value price.
