While he first received recognition as the guitarist for alternative R&B group The Internet, Steve Lacy has pushed far past his roots. The Grammy-nominated musician has since produced for countless artists, including Denzel Curry, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar, bringing his innovative style to each project. Now, Fender has teamed up with the maverick musician to create the People Pleaser Stratocaster, a phenomenal guitar with a unique aesthetic and a bright, beaming sound.
The People Pleaser Strat features a modern deep "C" shaped maple neck and a 9.5" radius maple fingerboard, making it a great choice for players who like slightly chunkier neck profiles. Guitarists will also appreciate its 21 narrow tall frets that allow for effortless bending and fast lead playing. If you love playing rapid-fire chords and smooth, soulful R&B solos, you'll feel right at home riffin' on this incredible Fender guitar.
Aside from its unmatched playability, the People Pleaser Stratocaster serves up a stellar array of classic and innovative tones courtesy of its Player Plus Noiseless single-coil pickups. These pickups deliver a bright, articulate chime that'll bring life to anything you play-and do so without any 60-cycle hum, courtesy of their noiseless design. The People Pleaser Strat also has a custom Steve Lacy Chaos Fuzz circuit activated by pressing the S-1 switch, allowing players to channel some grit and growl when needed.
To make it truly his own, Steve Lacy gave this guitar numerous aesthetic appointments that give it a distinctive look. From its unique Chaos Burst finish to its green and blue checkered back plate, this axe isn't your typical Stratocaster. It even has Lacy's signature on the back of the headstock and his custom artwork on the neckplate, rounding out its eye-catching appearance.
Whether you're a fan of Steve Lacy's music or simply looking for a high-quality Stratocaster with a unique twist, this guitar is sure to impress. Reach out today for more information on the Fender Steve Lacy People Pleaser Stratocaster!
