Fender Player Stratocaster Pau Ferro Fingerboard 3-Color Sunburst
Designed for players the world over who are into classic style and design, versatile and lush sounds, as well as exceptional value for money. The Player Series Stratocaster has all the hallmarks of a classic Strat, luscious body hugging curves, distinctive tonality allowing the player's character to shine through, contemporary and time honoured historical features like the spaghetti logo and Fender designed pickups. As well as performance orientated modern upgrades like gloss fronted/satin backed necks, synthetic bone nuts, and a two-point pivot tremolo.
For affordable and time tested tone it doesn't get much better than the Player Series. All Player Series feature modern "C" Profile Necks with a 9.5" Radius, 22 Medium Jumbo Frets, bent steel saddles on the Strats and Teles. All the pickups in the series have been re-designed by Tim Shaw featuring Alnico 5 single coils and Alnico 2 humbuckers. Alnico 2 magnets typically have a rich tone with a mid-range bump and less output, whereas alnico 5 magnets have a higher output, increased bass, and a very clear high-end.
A really good, affordable guitar for all levels of player, just as Leo intended.
The Fender Player Series Stratocaster PF Electric Guitar is a fantastic model for those who want a consistent performer that doesn't cost the earth. Borrowing classic features and pairing them alongside superb modern appointments, the Player Series Strat' is ideal for those who are looking for their tour-ready performance partner.
The Stratocaster has left an indelible mark on history, used by many a guitar legend to entertain, influence, and inspire. From rock and roll to heavy metal, there isn't a genre that hasn't been affected by this legendary guitar. Fender have taken that legacy and pushed the model's potential even further with the Player Series.
The body adheres to the same slender yet curvaceous body profile with deep double-cutaways and bevelled edges to establish an instantaneous feeling of familiarity between you and the guitar. Built using alder, the Strat' retains a lightweight feel in the hands coupled with a punchy midrange that forces itself through. The paintwork is protected by a slender coating of gloss polyester, which is paired with a 3-ply parchment pickguard to stunning effect.
Connected to the body is a supple yet solid maple neck, which is fitted via Fender's four-bolt joint and sealed with an "F"-stamped neck plate. The neck is carved to the modern "C" profile, which offers comfortable feel in the hand that sits just right. The satin urethane finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement during performances, so that you're given the freedom to shift seamlessly along the generous 25.5-inch scale length.
Married to the body is a snappy and responsive pau ferro fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium-jumbo frets with dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The addition of the 22nd fret affords great flexibility when laying down licks and riffs, giving you increased potential for silky smooth soloing in the upper register.
The Player Series Stratocaster is equipped with Alnico 5 Strat' single-coils in the neck, middle, and bridge positions. The standard 5-position pickup selector switch is on hand to shift through a wide variety of tones, whilst the Master Volume, Tone 1. (neck/middle) and Tone 2. (bridge) knobs allow you to attenuate and sculpt your tone precisely. Whatever style of music that you wish to tackle, this setup ensures you can traverse the musical landscape confidently.
The Fender Player Series Strat' features a refined 2-point tremolo design, which delivers delightfully smooth control over vibrato. Working in partnership with the standard cast/sealed tuning machines and synthetic bone nut, the bridge upholds tuning integrity consistently, whilst optimising intonation and sustain dutifully. Every model is setup with Fender USA strings, so that you can get playing as soon as it arrives.
