Resonant Tonewood Pairing

This Player II Strat's tone starts with a foundation of classic tonewood combination—an alder body partnered with a maple neck. The alder's balanced timbre ensures lows, mids and highs all shine through with clarity and articulation. Meanwhile, the bolt-on maple neck construction enhances sustain and resonance. The gloss polyester body finish allows the tonewood to breathe while protecting against dings on the road.
