Fender Player Lead III MN Sienna Sunburst

A homage to Fender's most innovative era. Created in 1979, the ground-breaking Lead series marked a fresh start for the world of guitars, combining unique electronics and distinctive style with a familiar feel. The original concept was to provide a more accessible variant of the Stratocaster, with a neck and pickup selection that stood out to players of all genres. And now, Fender have relaunched the esteemed series and equipped it for the modern stage.

The unveiling of the new Lead series presents two models – Lead II and Lead III. Both feature a more symmetrical take on the Stratocaster body shape, along with a smaller headstock and a secure hardtail bridge. The difference lies in the pickups. The Lead II is home to a pair of neat single-coils, while the Lead III hosts a dual humbucking configuration – both stemming from Fender's iconic Player Series. Special wiring options, vintage feel, and the unprecedented build-quality of Fender – these sensational instruments are ready to lead the way in your next musical chapter…

Heritage humbuckers

Shaped for the '80s era. The Lead III comes fitted with a pair of Alnico 2 Player Series humbuckers, emitting a tone with all the warmth, sustain, and rich character that they're renowned for. It goes without saying that you'll experience immaculate clarity with every note, due to the hum-cancelling nature of the pickups. Not to mention the searing hot capabilities that lie at your fingertips. Because humbuckers were born to unleash those scorching melodies and fat, textured chords that shaped the sound of rock 'n' roll. And, with master tone and master volume knobs, players have complete freedom to shape their tone to their style.

But the Lead III offers even more sonic options than your average Fender. An integrated wiring option switch lest you alternate between the pickups working in series or parallel with each other. What this means, is that you have two different voicings to experiment with the same pickups, gifting you with a simple-yet-versatile setup for your electronics. A traditional 3-way selector not only changes the pickups, but you can split the humbuckers too. Therefore, you can kick out the snap of a single-coil at the hit of a switch. Discover the secret to your sound.

Prime playability

Feeling inspired? Then you'll be able to pick up this guitar at a moment's notice and get your riffs out. The sleek modern "C" shaped maple neck feels super comfortable in your hands, and it's bolted onto the body for extra tonal brightness and stability. It is backed up perfectly by the maple surface, which offers strong sustain and even more tonal brightness for extra punch. And it feels super smooth underneath your fingertips. Prepare to be inspired.

Very nice and well put together guitar. Excellent finish on guitar. Twin humbucker pickups, very versatile with options of coil splits giving this guitar a variety of sounds. A quite light guitar and would recommend it.
