Overview

The Modern Player Series Short Scale Stratocaster features a 24" scale and slightly downsized body that make it a delight for the diminutive player. That said, it' long on other great features, such as a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 20 medium jumbo frets, vintage-style single-coil Stratocaster neck and middle pickups and - in a special touch - a powerful Guild "Anti-Hum" humbucking bridge pickup, a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, and more.

Case sold separately.

    Perfect size, comfortable, and unique for a Stratocaster. Fender-Guild: Fender design and wiring with one Guild Pickup. Short Scale makes it fun to play. Small body makes it light.

    Comments about Fender Modern Player Short Scale Stratocaster:

    I purchased this guitar from GC online. It's size and scale are great and the pick ups sound pretty good (there is some good sound versatility with the HSS configuration). My main three complaints are 1) there is some fret buzz that I haven't been able to get rid of, 2) it having only 20 frets makes it difficult to reach the upper frets (it having 22 frets would be preferable), and 3) the sustain is horrible above the 7th fret...absolutely horrible. With that said, I'll likely hang on to it just to have something small to mess around with sitting in the corner of my living room.
