The Fender Player Series Stratocaster Floyd Rose HSS PF Electric Guitar marries the beautiful elegance of the Stratocaster with the fastidious consistency of the Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo system for an unbeatable partnership. Whatever style of music that you perform, the HSS pickup setup allows you to cruise through every performance with ease. Whether you're new to the guitar or are a seasoned pro, the Fender Player Series Stratocaster Floyd Rose HSS would make a superb addition to any guitarist's arsenal.
Classic Strat' style
Since its release, the Fender Stratocaster has been the go to model for many guitar legends across every musical genre. From country to heavy metal, the Stratocaster's influence has reached far and wide. The elegant double-cutaway body features a slender depth coupled with ergonomically designed contours with curves in all the right places to establish a figure-hugging playing feel. You can wear it high or sling it low and the Strat sits just right every time.
The body is crafted using a Fender favourite, alder. Noted for its confident midrange energy with crisp highs, alder is perfect for those who prefer a guitar that can be as versatile as they are. 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
Joined 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 an articulate sounding pau ferro 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. The flatter 12-inch fingerboard radius allows you to execute flourishes such as string bends as smoothly as possible.
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.
