Product Description
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.

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, Fender's 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.

Reviews From Buyers
So let me be the first to review the guitar, i bought SSS Stratocaster in Buttercream, i didn't need another guitar but i always wanted a cream colored Strat, let me tell you how i came across one, i walked into Sam Ash store on the day they just unpacked it and put it out on display, i saw what looked to me like Malmsteen Strat so i reached for it just to realize it wasn't Malmsteen, to my surprise it was made in Mexico, i plugged it in and [played it and it played great and had a wonderful tone, sales people didn't know yet anything about the guitar, so i came home and tried to google it, but came with nothing, not even Fender.com had it listed yet, so few weeks late i walked into a different Sam Ash store and saw the same guitar, and it was as good as the one i played before so ordered one from zZounds to save the tax money, unfortunately mine wasn't set up at all when it arrived, i had to turn truss rode about 3 and a half turns to get the bow out, than i set the intonation, also the term was too close to the pick guard practically riding on it, so removed the pick guard and sanded down the pick guard, i also dipped pickup covers and knobs into coffee overnight and they turned cream colored, very nice little mode, the trem on mine is different from the guitars i played at the store, the trem on others was exactly the same as on my American one, not on the one i have received, but it is still very good one, seems like the put them randomly, the guitars plays and sounds as good as my American made strat, the only differences are, no rolled fret board edges, no staggered tuners, no micro tilt adjustment, fret work is as good as the any American Strat, tight neck joint everything is great, stays in tune super good, radius feels a bit flatter than 9.5, also it is listed as 9.5, to me it feel more like 10 comparing the feel to my PRS, well thats it, it is a great guitar, mine required some work the ones i payed at the store didn't, no need to spend twice the cash on the American anymore, also i own 3 american made guitars and this one is as good as any of them.
