Product Description

The Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS offers the tonal versatility of two Modern Player single-coil pickups and a full-throated Modern Player humbucking pickup at the bridge, with the addition of the second tone knob serving as a push-pull coil-split switch for the bridge pickup. Other features include an alder body, C-shaped maple neck, rosewood fretboard with 9.5 radius and 22 jumbo frets, five-way pickup switching, three-ply pickguard, vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuners and nickel/chrome hardware.

Throughout its history, Fender has always made a special point of welcoming players to the family by offering entry-level instruments of remarkable style and substance (such as the Duo-Sonic, Mustang and Musicmaster models), with great sound, classic looks, solid performance and eminent affordability. The Modern Player series continues that great my-first-Fender tradition, with thoroughly modern features and several distinctively unconventional takes on their most revered instruments-all with outstandingly attainable value.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprizing Quality and Sound"
Overall: I am amazed with everything about this guitar. I've been playing acoustic for many years and decided to add an electric to my (limited) collection. The iconic strat was a good place to start, but not at $1100 for American-made. I first noticed the Modern Player in a catalog and researched it on the net. Lots of good reviews, so I ordered from zZounds. This is my 2nd or 3rd purchase from them (though I still don't know how to pronounce their name), and each purchase has been an excellent experience. Timely delivery, expert packaging, and you can't beat the payment options, especially since you can use your own card. I even had to take photos as I unpacked the guitar - it was so ingeniously and snugly packaged. The guitar is beautiful (I got Olympic White) - flawless finish, no faults whatsoever that I could find. I changed the pick guard to tortoise-shell and did some set up myself, as the action was a bit high for my taste and the intonation was a bit off. But after all, it's made of wood and I would expect some expansion or shrinkage as the guitar has been handled and shipped from wherever (China to who-knows-where to the US to Colorado). The sound is excellent; each of the 5 positions (I suppose 6 if you count the split humbucker) produces a different and classically Fender sound. My recommendation is to get this guitar before Fender wakes up and jacks up the price! (No experience with Manufacturer Support.)

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Modern Player/Modern Beauty!"
Sound: The Modern Player HSS can handle everything from Hank Williams Sr, to AC/DC! The versatility of the tones is amazing! Feature: The Push/Pull Rear Coil Selector Switch on Tone Control 2 was what led me to choose this Strat over a normal SSS Strat...huge feature! Other than that it is a pretty straight forward HSS Strat.The Silverburst color is another unique feature that really makes this guitar stand out. Ease of Use: Very playable, versatile guitar. Great feeling neck and easy to play. Quality: This where I was very happy! Yes, it's made in China but folks, that's not a bad thing! I simply cannot find any build flaws at all! No problems with electronic buzzing, string buzz, absolutely no problems at all! Value: I would say that it is worth every penny I paid for it! I honestly can't say it's worth more but, it looks,plays and sounds like it's worth more! Manufacturer Support: N/A The Wow Factor: She's got it!!! Overall: The Fender Modern Player Strat HSS arrived on time and nearly ready to go. A quick tune-up and it was ready for a test run.The first thing you notice when you once the box is how beautiful it looks! A Strat is a thing of beauty to begin with but, add the Siverburst finish and it's just stunning!The classic "C" shaped neck is as comfortable as I have come to expect from a Strat. The sound on this Modern Player HSS is amazing. This is a great guitar for multi-styles of music from, country to rock! The Humbucker in the bridge position produces a more than adequate growl. My favorite sound is the bridge/middle pick-up together with the tone set high. Folks hold the Classic Vibe Squier in high esteem as do I and, this compares well or even surpasses them! I read as many reviews as I could before buying, only paying attention to those written by actual owners of the guitar. The only ones that were not positive reviews were those who got a guitar that needed t be set-up and hold that against the guitar itself. They don't take into consideration what a guitar goes through when it is shipped. The shipping companies bounce them around, they go through who knows how many climate changes and yes, sometimes they DO need to be professionally set-up. Mine did not.You won't regret buying this guitar. If you do have issues, take it to a near-by shop and have a pro set it up for you.
Style of Music: Non-specific. Classic to modern country., Southern Rock, Oldies, etc...
