Fender's Player Plus instruments are made specifically for performance-hungry musicians seeking affordable, advanced tools of expression. Built upon the best-selling Player series formula, these models come refined with modern upgrades that keep guitarists feeling inspired to play both louder and longer!
The Fender Player Plus Stratocaster HSS delivers superior playability, tone and style for the latest generation. Equipped with a powerful Player Plus humbucker and two newly-designed 'Noiseless' single-coil pickups for a wide sonic palette, additional appointments include a set of deluxe locking tuners, a "C"-shaped Maple neck enhanced with a slippery satin finish and rolled fingerboard edges, medium jumbo frets for unparalleled note control, and a super-smooth 2-point tremolo. It's like a Strat on steroids!
- Alder Body — Popular timber synonymous with Fender guitars. Offers a balanced tonal foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
- Modern "C" Maple Neck (with Rolled Edges) — Contemporary, rounded neck profile with moderate depth. Softened fingerboard edges and satin neck finish ensure a silky-smooth playing experience.
- 12" Fingerboard Radius — Flatter than you'd find on most Fender guitars. Great feature for modern guitarists, enabling fluid leads and preventing notes from choking when bending the strings.
- 1.685" Nut Width — Slightly wider nut allows the strings to be spaced further apart; letting your hand sit in a more natural and ergonomic position.
- Medium Jumbo Frets — Large, tall frets increase the distance between the strings and fingerboard for exceptional note control. Enable wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
- Player Plus Pickups — 'Noiseless' neck/middle single-coils dish out legendary Fender Strat tones, completely free of hum! Bridge humbucker delivers the ideal balance of gain and definition.
- Advanced Switching — Push/pull tone pot allows you to split the humbucker and achieve that iconic bridge single-coil spank!
- Deluxe Locking Tuners — Guarantee superior tuning stability and make string changes quicker to complete.
- 2-Point Synchronised Tremolo — Highly-responsive, with steel block saddles enhancing sustain and boosting low-end warmth.
- Included Deluxe Gig Bag — Rugged fabric case offers rock-solid protection for the instrument.
