Classic Strat' style
The Stratocaster is a model that is beloved by many due to its delightfully comfortable playability that allows you to ease through any performance with the greatest of ease. The slender body depth is paired with elegantly shaped contours and curves that enable the Strat is rest snugly against you during performances for a figure-hugging feel. Whether you prefer to wear it high or sling it low, the Strat always feels just right. If you're a guitarist that likes to move freely on the stage, then you'll love the playability of this beauty.
Fender have gone with their favoured tonewood of alder for the Player Series Strat. Highly prized due to its lightweight feel combined with a graceful midrange energy, alder offers a well-rounded output with emphasized midrange for a forthright energy. The paintwork is protected by a generous coating of gloss polyester, whilst a 3-ply black/white/black pickguard prevents unwanted nicks and scrapes from blemishing the finish.
Steadfast maple neck
Connected to the body is a steady and reliable maple neck, which is shaped to the modern "C" profile that sits sweetly in the hand. A slender coating of satin urethane allows your hand to run seamlessly along the neck without impediment. The 25.5-inch scale length is at the heart of the Strat's consistent articulation across each and every note.
Paired with the neck is a maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium jumbo frets that are decorated with dot position inlays to guide your way. The addition of a 22nd fret opens up the possibility to expand your creativity across the upper register to push your playing to its limits.
Rather than adopting a standard trio of single-coils, the Player Series Strat HSS is equipped with a humbucker in the bridge and a pair of single-coils between the middle and neck positions. The bright and unabashed tones of the single-coils provide a stark contrast to the smoothness of the humbucker, which delivers a beefier output that is fantastic for heavier musical styles. A five-way pickup selector switch allows you to switch readily between tone options, whilst the master volume and two tone controls allow you to shape you sound with deft precision.
Floyd Rose setup
Fitted to the body is a Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo system, which works in conjunction with the Floyd Rose locking nut and Fender standard cast/sealed tuning machines to provide steadfast tuning integrity, as well as optimised intonation and sustain for unbelievably consistent performance. If you're a player who likes to attack the strings with vigour, the this is the setup for you.
