Fender Player Stratocaster (Maple)

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.

Respecting our heritage while maintaining our innovative spirit, 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, Fender's 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.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I waited a few days to write a review on my purchase. I wanted to take some time, play with my pedal board, Ya know, see what all tones I can get out of this baby. Let me start by saying, there isn’t a tone you can’t get out of it. Save for the super high gain stuff, in which case I recommend the HSS. For everything else, this is perfect. From shimmering clean, to medium/high gain, the new alnico single coils stay clear and articulate. The amount of body they hold is a massive upgrade from the overwound ceramic turds of old. Great string separation and clarity. A+ I have my pedals set just above unity gain, and all going in the front of my Orange AD30. Eq>od808>Dyna comp>ns2. Tweaking the Maxon did get me into high gain territory. Fit and finish. If not doing a lot of fret work on a brand new guitar is one of your favorite things, you’ll love buying this. Fret ends are very well dressed, no high frets, well crowned, well polished. The body is immaculate. I tried finding any kind of flaw or blemish. Don’t waste your time. You won’t find one. And as for the paint, the new colors are amazing. I went for Tidepool. So glad I did. The color is absolutely gorgeous. Kind of a cross between Ice Blue Metallic and Lake Placid. The gloss fretboard is smooth and not sticky. The satin neck is even smoother, and the modern c profile is perfect for my average sized hand. Hardware. Every review says it’s the same tuners, but I don’t recall the standard stuff holding tune this well. I waited on it for 45 minutes straight and didn’t have to tune once. The saddles are great. The bent steel is a huge upgrade over the cast jobbers that came standard before. Lastly, the trem block is not a thin little piece of crap. It’s a big block trem. Still cast pot metal, but the difference is amazing. Huge sustain when compared to the old standards. All in all, insane value. I can not believe this is a Mexican made guitar. It feels like an American, and plays like it too. The only thing I’d add, is treble bleed, but with the new wiring of the second tone controlling just the bridge pickup, it isn’t a deal breaker. I’m probably going to order another one in HSS, just because of how amazing this one is.
Style of Music: Pop punk and metal.

Overall: Just received my Buttercream Players Series Strat....I bought a blemished model a few days ago, and I've gone over this thing for a half hour trying to find the blemish! I can't. And this blemished guitar came set up! This is the 5th guitar I've bought from zZounds and I couldn't be happier - this model is great as the bottom tone controls the bridge pup, the pick ups sound nice and the buttercream color is beautiful (always wanted a Strat in this color) and the zZounds picture captures the Buttercream color very, very close! The neck has a sweet gloss finish on the maple fret board (looks like a Rickenbacker 620 finish) and the frets are smooth as silk. For an MiM, this thing is top notch. VERY nice guitar for the money. Thanks as usual zZounds!
Style of Music: Rock, blues, pop, whatever hits me.
