What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Ash body Strong, snappy responsive tone
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Fender Vintage Noiseless pickups Stacked single-coil pickups; vintage output
Top-load/string-thru high-mass bridge Improved tuning stability and sustain
A re-release of the popular Super Strat, the Fender Deluxe Players Stratocaster harnesses the wonderful playability that Leo Fender's design is renowned for. Fitted with a trio of Vintage Noiseless Strat pickups and a five-way switch -- with two push/pull positions for a total of seven pickup settings -- you get a giant range of tonal options at your disposal. And, with a solid ash body, medium jumbo frets on a one-piece 12-inch radius maple neck, and a gold-plated, vintage-styled synchronized tremolo bridge, your Deluxe Players Strat will catch eyes and steal hearts with its superb tone and sustain. If you've never played a Stratocaster before, the Deluxe Players Strat is a great guitar to start with.

Seven Pickup Settings for Broad Tonal Capacity

Your three Noiseless Strat pickups will give you that vintage, distinctive single-coil Strat sound heard by the original Stratocaster design. The use of single-coils really gives Stratocasters a unique sound that's not easily imitated by other manufacturers. The five-way pickup switch allows you five configurations of your three pickups plus an additional two positions when you use the push/pull feature -- bridge alone, bridge and middle, middle alone, middle and neck, neck only, all three, and bridge and neck -- for a total of seven configurations. You won't get bored with the tonal resourcefulness this guitar has to offer.

Agile Playability and Comfort

The Deluxe Players Stratocaster's vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge allows for supreme flexibility while maintaining lasting intonation, and with the 12-inch radius neck, you'll be able to comfortably take advantage of the extra space. The maple neck sports 21 medium jumbo frets that press comfortably against the strings as you hold and bend your notes. You'll see just how free this neck feels once you get your fingers on it.

Solid Ash Body and One-piece Maple Neck

The Fender Deluxe Players Strat's body is crafted in the classic image of the original Stratocaster. It's an instantly recognizable figure familiar to most guitarists and is frequented by notable players like Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix. The solid ash body and one-piece maple neck, in conjunction with the lasting sustain of the tremolo bridge, will resonate your playing brightly with an enduring warmth that is as inviting as it is unique.

- Solid ash body
- One-piece 12-inch radius maple neck in modern "C" shape

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (101 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Awesome Guitar for the Price!"
Sound: The Noisless PUPS are SWEET! Classic Strat Tone without the hum. I love the additional push button feature. Adds a lot of versatility. I am playing it through both an older Fender Blues Deluxe (Sweet clean sound) and also through a new Mustang III. The guitar holds up well within all of the variety of sounds available with this amp too. Feature: The Ash body looks good and gives classic resonance. I love the push button for additional tonal control and variation, augments the 5 position switch nicely. The wider neck radius (12") is awesome! (I am a larger guy with thick fingers) Very playable! Reminds me a bit of my old '83 Strat Elite. Nice Feel. The Rosewood Fretboard gives it just the right touch of warmth. Ease of Use: This guitar was playable right out of the box. I did just a few minor adjustments to string height etc. to fine tune it to my specific needs but very easy to do and very easy to play. Quality: The overall quality seems to be up to the very high standard that I have grown to expect of Fender. Fender has done an outstanding job of making their facility in Mexico, World Class in their quality of production. The higher end touches, the Noiseless PUPS and the look of the transparent finish and gold hardware are awesome. I believe this guitar will be a permanant piece in my collection Value: Well worth the price! MSRP $929 ZZounds $649. Great value when compared to many even higher priced instruments. ZZounds price guarantee is AWESOME I got this guitar for a price that amazed even me! Better price than many CHEAP knock offs but fo the real deal! Absolutely worth it! Want a beautifull classic stratocaster vibe but can't afford $1K plus??? This is your Axe! Manufacturer Support: I have always had positive experiences when dealing with Fender in the past. Have had no need to deal with them on this instrument The Wow Factor: This guitar LOOKS AWESOME! Plays AWESOME! Gives Classic sounds for Blues, Rock and even Country. At an AWESOME PRICE! BUY ONE! Overall: Just received my new Deluxe Players Strat. Love it! It compares well to my older American made strats. The finish is beautiful, the gold hardware seems to be of high quality and is striking against the saphirre blue body. Nicely done Fender. I have found the Mexican made guitars are right up to the standards of the new American made in most ways.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Only strat I ever liked!"
Overall: I will keep it simple. The only bad on this guitar is the low volume output from the noiseless pickups. The hum is 90% eliminated so it is worth it but I always have to turn the volume up on my amp a little when I am playing this compared to my guitars with humbuckers. OK, this guitar has the best action I have ever encountered. MUCH better than my PRS SE Tremonti and Epiphone Les Paul Ultra. I bought this in hopes that I would get enough twang from it to not have to buy a Telecaster. It has some twang but it's just not quite enough to mark a Tele off my "to get list". This as is flawless cosmetically, has a nice slim neck, and stays in tune very well. The additional settings on this strat are good but not as good as positions 1-5 in my opinion. Can get plenty of quack in positions 2 and 4 which are my favorite settings on the guitar. It seems that the middle pickup is best for strumming. The bride pickup has enough bite to play anything with distortion that is originally played on a strat such as SRV, Hendrix, RHCP etc. For the money, this is much better than the 2 guitars I mentioned above. I honestly could have paid 1650 and been totally satisfied. For 650 I am floored!!!!
