The Player Series is designed for guitarists looking to take their first step into the world of Fender. The models from this range deliver authentic Fender style and tone at a price-point that's within the reach of most aspiring musicians. And of course, there's no instrument from Fender that's more iconic than the venerable Strat! 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 Player Strat, but comes supercharged with a couple of tasteful aesthetic refinements — including a super-cool Surf Green finish and a matching painted headstock!
- 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.
- "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!
- Matching Headstock — Painted headcap gives the instrument a classy, uniform look.
- Pau Ferro Fingerboard — Silky material with warm tonal properties and a stunning grain.
- Medium Jumbo Frets — Offer a controllable feel for wide vibrato and pitch-perfect string bends.
- Player Series Alnico Pickups — Designed for crisp, articulate, single-coil-fuelled Fender tone... with a bit of an edge!
- 2-Point Tremolo Bridge — Lets you embellish chords and lead lines with smooth, expressive vibrato.
