Product Description

Created for today's guitarist, the Player Stratocaster allows the musician to experience a wide range of musical tones. The comfortable Player Stratocaster has a sleek body style providing easy playability with that authentic Fender iconic style. The inspiring sound of a Stratocaster is one of the foundations of Fender. Featuring this classic sound—bell-like high end, punchy mids and robust low end, combined with crystal-clear articulation—the Player Stratocaster is ready to serve your musical vision. The Player Strat is versatile enough to handle any style of music and it’s the perfect platform for creating your own sound.

Respecting our heritage while maintaining our innovative spirit, the power trio of Player Series single-coil pickups are crisp and articulate—it’s authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The “Modern C”-shaped maple neck’s comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. By adding a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5”-radius fingerboard we’ve made it easier to express yourself musically. The updated 2-point tremolo design has smoother travel for enhanced playing feel while simultaneously giving you rock-solid tuning stability since there’s less friction against the posts. Other features include master volume and tone controls, a 5-way pickup switch, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt “F”-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal—as Fender as it gets.

Own your tone and create something new with the Player Stratocaster.

Very nice guitar

What is your opinion of this product?
I've had many more expensive guitars but, I am extremely happy and impressed with these new Mexican made player series. This is honestly one of the best guitars I have ever owned. I bought the Buttercream and it is a very classy looking guitar setup was basic out of the box but very playable. I took it too much luthier and now this guitar plays beautifully. This one is never going anywhere. I even purchased a top of the line Fender hard case for it...it deserves it!

Not as great as I had hoped
What is your opinion of this product?
Plays great ! Great feel ! Stays in tune intonation great ! Started playing right out of the box , only thing that threw off my excitement was when I unplugged my other Mexican strat “a 2000”and plugged up my new one it seemed like it just lost the sound , power and tone .... don’t know what the issue is yet , but it made me sad ?? kinda bummed me out

New Favorite Guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is a beast. I love the new voice of the pickups and the. Genuine Fender Strat tone that is smooth as butter through a Fender amp. I have the version in Tidepool and it looks as good as it sounds. The 2 point trem system is a nice upgrade. The re-wired tone knob is nice but I like the full tone bridge pickup, so that upgrade is not as useful to me. This thing will be staying with me for a long time!

Amazing guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Truly love this guitar. Bought 2 of the Polar White with a maple neck guitars. Such a sweet playing & looking guitar. 10 years ago I bought 2 American Standard Stratocasters new for a grand each. Let me tell you this guitar plays & sounds as good as those 2. Also bought the Fender deluxe gig bag with it. Very good purchase also. Thanks Fender & AMS you guys rule!

My dream guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
For years I've wanted an American Pro series Strat for its playability, tone, and quality. I no longer need it, the Player Series has met those expectations with the upgrades. Great Job Fender! I have the Tidepool color, looks like a classic car color. It turns heads everywhere I take it.

Great value!
What is your opinion of this product?
This is an exceptional value on a Strat. I ordered the buttercream. Feels and sounds fabulous. Has the second tone pot wired for the bridge pup. I would advise a string change/setup and you will be set to jam. Out of the box, fret edges are smooth and setup was decent. Your basic Strat with a tasteful tone pot mod and upgraded pickups. For the money invested, I feel this is a worthwhile purchase. Cranked through a tube amp is pure bliss!
