Player Series Stratocaster Demo | Fender


collapse expand iconDescription

Fender's Player Series Stratocaster puts a contemporary spin on the iconic Strat. Primed to inspire players of all levels with its versatile sound and smooth playability, this limited-edition model features an alder body with a glossy finish and a maple fretboard for a crisp, articulate tone. Powered by three newly designed Player Series single-coil Stratocaster pickups, it delivers the unmistakable bell-like highs, punchy mids and solid low end that have come to define the Stratocaster sound.

New Pickups Provide Endless Tonal Possibilities

The heart of the Player Stratocaster's tone lies in its three Player Series single-coil pickups. Designed by Fender specifically for this guitar, these pickups provide a wide range of tones from glassy and chimey to warm and rounded. The pickup selector switch gives players instant access to neck, middle, bridge or all three pickups at once for a variety of combinations. Roll the tone knob up or down to cut highs for a warmer, more vintage inspired tone or keep them open for extra sparkle.

Comfortable Contours and Fast, Easy Playability

Everything about the Player Stratocaster is designed for comfort and speed. Its alder body contours to the shape of your body, while the modern C-shaped neck profile offers an ideal balance of thickness and shallowness. A 9.5" fretboard radius and medium jumbo frets also facilitate smooth bending and fretting. For players seeking maximum expression, the two-point fulcrum vibrato bridge provides subtle pitch bending effects.

A Timeless Design With Modern Appeal

While the Player Stratocaster pays homage to the classic Stratocaster design, small touches give it a contemporary vibe. A synthetic bone nut and bent steel saddles on the bridge provide exceptional tuning stability and sustain. Understated cosmetic upgrades like the parchment pickguard and control knobs also lend a sleek, modern aesthetic. Overall, the Player Stratocaster delivers the perfect blend of vintage-inspired sound and style with present-day playability and performance.
