The Fender Player Stratocaster in Buttercream offers incredible value! Easily one of the finest products for the money that Fender has ever offered, the Player Series is the real deal. If you need a Strat or a Tele and don't want to spend an arm and a leg, start with a Player!
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 packed with authentic Fender feel and style. It’s ready to serve your musical vision, it’s versatile enough to handle any style of music and it’s the perfect platform for creating your own sound. A 9.5" fingerboard radius and 22 medium-jumbo frets make this a very playable guitar. Big bends, vibrato, slick licks, all of it is easy.
A Maple neck with a Maple Fingerboard comes stock with the color Buttercream. This adds a strong attack on notes that is bright, bold, and easy to pick up in the mix. The neck is carved to a modern C profile that is very comfortable. This neck is on the thin side as the Player Series is geared towards a younger crowd. However, we have found players of all ages gravitate to this wonderful series from Fender because the necks feel pretty awesome no matter what constructs you subscribe to.
True Fender tones bellow from the Player Series Strat. Fat, round low end sits next to well-controlled and tapered mid-range, with a bell-like chime on the top end equals that unmistakable Fender sound. A 5-way pickup selector switch is teamed up with a master volume and two tone controls. Finding the sound of your dreams is easy-peasy.
The body is made of Alder, the perfect tonewood for the Strat. Not too bright, not too muddy, it pairs with Single Coil Pickups masterfully. Finished in Buttercream, this color looks like the Yngwie Malmsteen Strat (minus the scalloped fingerboard, of course!)
