The Fender Player Series Stratocaster Plus Top MN in Aged Cherry Burst offers an exceptional model at an affordable price. Whether you're new to the instrument or have years of experience under your belt, the Player Series Plus Top Strat would make a welcome addition to any guitarist's arsenal. Boasting gig-ready appointments with highly versatile pickups and a sublime finish, this is a truly mesmerising model from the Fender crew.
Classic Strat style
Since its introduction several decades ago, the Stratocaster has been the model of choice for generations of guitarists. The elegantly contoured body profile establishes a feeling of familiarity that all players approve of. The bevelled edges and deep double-cutaways afford ready access to the neck in its entirety, whilst removing any obstacles from your picking arm's path.
The body of the Player Series Strat Plus Top is crafted using alder, a tonewood favoured by Fender thanks to its lightweight feel and incredible tonality. Boasting a healthy midrange energy with a crisp high-end clarity, alder is perfect for those who crave versatility during performances. The stunning aged cherry burst finish is protected by a coating of gloss polyester, which is accompanied by a 3-ply black/white/black pickguard.
Sturdy maple neck
Joined to the body is a reliable and steady maple neck, which is carved to the modern "C" profile to promote a comfortable playing feel from nut to heel. The satin urethane finish allows your hand to glide effortlessly along the neck without unwanted tackiness from holding you back.
Married to the neck is a glorious maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way. The addition of a 22nd fret opens up further avenues to let your creative expression loose. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius provides a smooth platform to perform intricate technique seamlessly.
The Fender Player Series Strat Plus Top is equipped with a trio of Alnico 5 single-coil pickups between the neck, middle, and bridge positions. The 5-position pickup selector switch allows you to deftly adjust you output, whilst the master volume pot and dual tone controls allow you to shape your tone with ease.
The Player Series is equipped with stable hardware from headstock to end-pin. Standard cast/sealed tuning machines uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision, whilst the 2-point synchronised tremolo system with bent steel saddles optimises intonation and sustain. Whether you're subtle or bombastic during your sets, the Player Series Strat has you covered no matter what.
