Player Series Pickups Provide Crisp, Articulate Tone

The trio of Alnico 5 Player Series single-coil pickups provides crisp, articulate tone with more output for cutting through a mix. The neck pickup delivers warm, full lows and crystalline highs. The middle pickup produces punchy mids and a slight scoop. The bridge pickup gives you searing lead tones with solid lows. With a 5-way switch, you can access neck, neck/middle, middle, middle/bridge and bridge pickup selections for a variety of tones from glassy and chime-like to aggressive and gritty.

Modern Neck Profile and Fingerboard for Fast, Comfortable Playing

The satin-finished, maple neck has a comfortable, modern C profile and 9.5" fretboard radius for fast, easy bending and vibrato. The 22 medium jumbo frets make it simple to express yourself musically with greater accuracy and control. Left-handed players will appreciate the familiar feel, allowing an easy transition between this instrument and their other guitars.

Updated Tremolo Bridge Improves Tuning Stability

The Fender Player Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Left-Handed Electric Guitar features an updated two-point tremolo bridge with bent-steel saddles for solid tuning stability and smooth tremolo action. The redesigned bridge reduces friction, allowing the tremolo arm to swing freely while keeping strings in tune. Play dive bombs, warbles and other tremolo techniques with confidence thanks to the enhanced design.
