The New Standard

The Fender Standard series has been one of the most popular Fender lines of all time and now the Fender Player series has arrived.

This iteration of the Fender Player Stratocaster sports the classic three single-coil pickup configuration along with all the traditional features that have made the Stratocaster such a long-lasting, beloved electric guitar after all these years.

Fender Player Stratocaster MN 3-Colour Sunburst Key Features:

  • New Player Series Single-Coil Pickups
  • 5-Way Pickup Switching
  • Synchronised Tremolo Bridge with Bent Steel Saddles
  • Modern "C" Shape Maple Neck
  • 9.5" Radius Maple Fretboard

Classic Fender Strat Design

Noted for its bright, balanced and resonant tone, pronounced upper midrange, fantastic sustain and sharp attack, Alder has long been a favourite body wood for Fender guitars and is used here on the Fender Player Stratocaster.

The double cutaway design of the Fender Strat is a signature aspect of the iconic Stratocaster body profile and allows for easy reach of the higher frets; essential for high-reaching guitar solos and other adventurous forms of playing.

Satin Finished, Comfortable Neck

Attached to the body with a sturdy 4-bolt neck plate that features a great looking stamped "F" logo is a 25.5" scale Maple neck.

With its modern "C" shape and satin finish on the back, this neck is extremely comfortable to play.

Atop the neck is a Maple fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius holding 22 medium jumbo frets for great all-round playability.

Quality Hardware

On the body of the Fender Player Stratocaster is a 2-point synchronised tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles allowing for great whammy-bar action while providing great intonation.

Up on the headstock are standard cast sealed tuning machines giving you speedy, precise and secure tuning of your strings while the synthetic bone nut prevents binding of the strings while offering great sustain.

New Pickups with Versatile Switching

Giving the Fender Player Stratocaster its incredible voice is a set of three New Player Series Single-Coil pickups.

A five-position blade allows you to select how you want to use the SSS pickup configuration:

  • Position 1. Bridge Pickup
  • Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup
  • Position 3. Middle Pickup
  • Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
  • Position 5. Neck Pickup

For further shaping of your sonic output there's a Master Volume knob and two Tone knobs; one for the neck and middle pickups and the other for the bridge pickup.

With so many options, the Stratocaster provides a huge variety of tones - no wonder it's been one of the world's most popular guitars since first being introduced back in 1954!

Return of a Timeless Classic

The Fender Stratocaster is synonymous with rock music and has been used by some of the greatest, most influential guitarists of all times including such diverse artists as Jimi Hendrix, John Frusciante, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, David Gilmour and a whole lot more.

With classic style, modern features, great playability and incredible, versatile sound it's amazing what the Fender Player Stratocaster delivers and at such a great price.
