Fender's all new Player Stratocaster HSS is here to help you take your next step forward in your guitar playing journey. Featuring authentic Fender tone, a great set of pickups, and enhanced playability, this guitar is a professional level solidbody with a full lifetime of playing ahead of it. The entire line up of new Player Series models are some of the finest guitars Fender has made at a price that is incredibly affordable.
The flexible, yet spirited tone of this guitar comes from a new set of pickups specially designed for the Player Series. The Player Series humbucking bridge pickup adds a new layer of warmth to the guitar’s tone, in addition to the single-coil pickups in the middle and neck. Players looking for a more sonically versatile Stratocaster will love the HSS. The Player Stratocaster HSS also adds a 22nd fret for more range than ever before, while an updated 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge prioritizes playability and tuning stability for an all-around exceptional playing experience. Plus, the four-bolt "F" logo neck plate, spaghetti-logo headstock, and authentically-contoured body add another layer of genuine Fender vibe. Thanks to articulate tone, exceptional Fender feel, and the unmistakable overall vibe of the Strat, this Player Series model is a remarkable instrument that’s ready for the taking.
