Fender's Player Stratocaster HSS Maple Fingerboard Special Edition Electric Guitar provides players the unmistakable tone of a Stratocaster with modern enhancements for versatile performance. Featuring a humbucking bridge pickup and two single-coil Strat pickups, this guitar delivers a range of sounds from glassy highs to growling lows. An updated two-point tremolo bridge offers expressive playing with rock-solid tuning stability. Its modern C-shaped maple neck and 9.5" fingerboard radius provide comfortable, fast playing for a variety of musical styles.

Versatile Tonal Options From Three Pickups

The Player Stratocaster HSS offers a sonic palette suited for any genre. Its humbucking bridge pickup produces full, punchy tones, while the single-coil neck and middle pickups deliver the crisp, articulate sound that made the Stratocaster famous. With a five-way pickup selector, players can access each pickup individually or blend multiple pickups for unique in-between tones.

Enhanced Tremolo Performance and Tuning Stability

An updated two-point tremolo bridge provides players a smooth, responsive tremolo feel for expressive techniques like vibrato, dives and swoops while maintaining rock-solid tuning stability. The bent steel saddles and block increase sustain and resonance for an authentic Strat tone.

Fast, Comfortable Neck Perfect for Any Playing Style

Its modern C-shaped maple neck and 9.5" fingerboard radius are ideal for fast, comfortable playing in any style. 22 medium jumbo frets extend the range for effortless soloing and bending. The satin urethane finish maximizes smoothness and speed.

Classic Alder Body Construction and Stylish Aesthetics

A solid alder body produces the balanced, resonant tone that Fender guitars are known for, with crisp highs, pronounced midrange and tight low end. A black polyester finish and pickguard provide an eye-catching look on stage and in the studio.
