Product Description

In addition to heralding the return of a fabled and seldom-heard Fender name from the 1960s, the Fender Modern Player Marauder Electric Guitar is one of the most distinctive guitars in the family. Marked by a unique body style, Modern Player Jazzmaster neck pickup and volcanic-sounding three-coil Fender Triplebucker bridge pickup, the Modern Player Marauder is for the player looking for something a little different.

The Modern Player Marauder also features a koto body, C-shaped maple neck, and rosewood fretboard with 22 jumbo frets for a unique tone with both warmth and bite. Versatility, comfort, and unique design is what you get with the Fender Modern Player Marauder.

I was surprised
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
When I first saw the Marauder I thought it was such a cool looking Fender and the idea of having a variety of tones reeled me in. Then while reading the rave reviews I saw it was made in China... My bubble was burst. It was so cheap that I had to try one, long time Fender fan and owned dozens of them. I have to say, these are crafted like Apple products not like clay pots and wicker baskets.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
Forgetting the price entirely I still think it is a great guitar, can't put it down, has tones of different sounds, and it has great manners in a live situation.
Tone
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
When playing live I use mostly the 1 & 2 position on the triplebucker. I love the Jazz pickup though when I am playing blues. The 4 & 5 position are sweet, plug into my AC15 and you have to tear it out of my hands. Has all the noiseless Fender tones plus some darker tones from the Triplebucker. I was going to replace the triplebucker with a Gibson because I thought it would be cheesy but it really shined when I first played live and now I love it.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
The paint was perfect, thick and glossy. Pickguard was a suprise, looks beautiful on the black and is 4 ply. Rosewood neck almost looks like ebony, very dense grain and hard and snappy. Fret inlays perfect. My only gripe is the tremolo which is easily replaceable. The chrome is Ok but the metal on the saddles looked a wee bit unfinished and dare I say cheap. Also, as I read from another reviewer... one of the screws on the tremolo cover missed the wood. Aside of that i was quite surprised at the build quality.
