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.

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 we've 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.

This guitar is extremely high quality. Looking it over very closely, it really is stunning. Fit and finish are top notch: frets, neck, fingerboard, body -- everything. I was expecting the set-up to be way off but the neck relief was perfect and the action was right at 4/64". I ordered it online and got an assist from John in the web store; great service and the delivery was lightning fast -- I was butchering SRV riffs the day after I put the order in for this guitar! Can't beat that. If you're hesitating because this is a made in Mexico guitar, rest assured these guitars look, feel, play and sound every bit like a USA model.

Wonderful guitar. Although made in Mexico, it loses nothing to an American Fender. Letterhead on an amp or played with a pedal set looks just like an American Fender. I recommend this guitar. Great price for what that guitar offers.

Had mine for a month now and my only problem is putting it down. Feels amazing to play and sounds great. It's very light and comfortable but feels super-solid construction-wise. The pickups sound great and having tone control for the bridge pickup is awesome. It's an amazing guitar especially at the price they are asking.
