Fender Player Lead III in Purple Metallic MX20171177

Regular price Sale

The Fender Player Lead III in Purple Metallic has finally arrived! Originally introduced in 1979, The Lead III references a guitar made exclusively in 1982 with a set of Hot Alnico Loaded Humbucker Pickups. Finished in a bevy of cool colors this time around, we are blown away by how cool this Metallic Purple Flake Finish is! 

A pair of Alnico Magnet loaded humbucker pickups come installed in the Player Lead III. These beasts are made more versatile with mini coil tap switches for each pickup. This grants us an insane amount of versatility ranging from ultra heavy humbucker tones to snappy Strat or Tele-like tones, this one guitar can do a shocking amount of stuff! 

It's a very comfortable sized guitar with exceptional high fret access. The body size is smaller than a Strat or Telemaking it the perfect guitar for long hours on the couch. Also perfect for kids or smaller players who would be better served with a slim-waisted guitar.

The neck is made from maple and is carved into a Modern C Profile. The Purple Metallic version comes with a Pau Ferro fingerboard that carries a 9.5" fretboard radius and 22 medium-jumbo frets. 1.650" nut width and 25.5" scale length keep all the feels as Fendery as can be. 

Fender continues to be The Player Driven Brand in 2021 coming p with many new offerings that are blowing the guitar world away. Make sure to check out our full inventory to see what's hanging at the shop and stop by to give them a play-test!
