Fender Player Stratocaster - Maple Fingerboard
The Fender Player Stratocaster packs a host of great appointments into an affordable version of the legendary instrument. The Player Strat takes over from the previous linchpin of Fender's Strat range, the Standard Strat, adding a welcome selection of improvements and upgrades.
With its origins firmly based on the Fender's early design, the Player Strat gives players access to the classic Strat look and sound as used by guitar heroes such as Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck and Hank Marvin, to name but a few, all whilst maintaining an affordable price point.
The Player Strat features a double cutaway alder body which is married to a maple neck that has been carved into a highly playable Modern "C" profile. The neck itself is topped with a 9.5" radius fingerboard that hosts dot inlays and set with 22 medium jumbo.
Loaded with the traditional three single coil setup, in this case, the new Player Series single coils, and wired through a 5-way pickup selector switch with one volume and two tone controls, tonal versatility is the order of the day. Whether you fancy the bright, edgy bridge pickup, the warmth of the neck pickup or some of those classic 'in between' tones, it's all easily accessible. The Strat's flexible tonal selection is one of the reasons why the Strat still such a popular model, able to cover and excel within a huge variety of genres.
Other appointments include a 2-point trem system with bent steel saddles, the classic 50s style spaghetti Fender headstock logo and 6 high quality tuners.
The Fender Player Strat is a great option for any guitarist in the market for one of the classic instruments, from one of the leading guitar brands. Get classic looks, legendary tone and modern playability all in one affordable package.
