Alder body Light weight with a wide tonal range
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Fender Player Series Alnico 5 pickups Crisp and articulate; modern Fender edge
Strings-thru-body hardtail bridge Strings seated in body; more resonance and control
In response to low-priced import competition, Fender created the Lead Series in 1979, featuring a new solid-body design, hard-tail bridges and cool new wiring options. Appealing to a wide variety of players, the sleek new Lead models kicked off a fresh creative era in Fender's history.

The Player Lead II is an homage to those late 70's models, featuring dual-slanted Player series single coil pickups, a modern "C" neck shape with medium jumbo frets, dual-toggle switches (one for pickup selection, one for phase-reverse), and of course that unique Lead double-cutaway shape.

The Player Lead Series offers style, power and versatility in a comfortable, easy-to-play package.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The '79 Lead II's are my favorite guitars from 54 years of playing. These new ones turn me on but, no one seems to be able to tune them. That's a shame, because I really wanted to buy 2 more.
