The models from this range deliver authentic Fender style and tone at a price-point that's within the reach of most aspiring musicians.

With a timeless look, versatile electronics and ready-to-rock hardware — the Strat is a logical choice for any guitar player looking to cover multiple genres.
This special edition model gives you all of the flexibility of a stock HSS Player Strat, but comes supercharged with a gorgeous Roasted Maple neck and an exquisite Shell Pink finish! Other tasteful aesthetic refinements include a 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard and aged white pickup covers/control knobs.
- Alder Body — Timeless tonewood choice synonymous with bolt-on electric guitars. Serves as a balanced sonic foundation for the pickups, with tight lows, bold mids and singing highs.
- Bolt-On Construction — Produces a snappy note response for an immediate playing experience.
- Roasted Maple Neck — Roasting process removes all of the natural moisture retained by the neck wood, ultimately darkening the material and making it far less vulnerable to warping when exposed to varying climates. Its great for keeping your tuning stable!
- "C"-Shaped Neck — Slim profile provides comfortable playability, suitable for both traditional and contemporary players. Slippery satin finish won't ever slow you down either!
- Medium Jumbo Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
- Player Series Alnico Pickups — Designed for crisp and articulate Fender tone, with a bit of an edge! Versatile HSS configuration gives you a mixture of powerful humbucking sounds and crystal-clear single-coil chimes.
