Product Description

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 sonically flexible Player Stratocaster HSS 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 Player Series humbucking bridge pickup sounds huge and warm, while the single-coil Stratocaster middle and neck 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 HSS.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound: The pickups used are very well balanced and the first time I do not want to change the entire set. The humbucker was hard to get used to so I changed it to 2 single coils and a Dimarzio single coil humbucker. This was personal choice and no way reflection on the stock humbucker. Feature: Love the stability of the two point bridge. Quality: Excellent quality through and through. Value: Best bang for your buck and definitely holds its own against more expensive models. Overall: With the Player Series, it essentially a classic player strat with smaller radius, different pickups, and modern tuners.
Style of Music: Blues, rock, classic rock

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I’ve been playing guitar for 15+ yrs and even though I always wanted one I never was able to get a Fender Strat due to random circumstances. It wasn’t until just a few days ago that I was finally able to obtain the guitar I always wanted, a Tobacco Sunburst Fender Stratocaster. I decided to go for the HSS version because I love the classic sound of a Strat from the single coil pups but I also play a lot of harder Rock and Metal so I figured it best to have a humbucker especially since I planned on the Strat being my main guitar for a very long time and the HSS takes what is already one of the most versatile guitars ever and makes it capable of even more. The guitar (which I purchased here from zZounds) arrived 2 days ago and out of the box it was in impeccable condition. Not a single mark on the neck or body. The guitar was set up decent as well and once I adjusted the truss rod a little, took of the 9s, oiled the Pau Ferro fretboard (which is lovely by the way) with lemon oil conditioner, put on D’addario 10-46s, and tightened the trem springs to lower the bridge down closer to the body the guitar is now flawless. I have never played a guitar that feels so perfect and sounds so amazing. There are literally no cons about this guitar. It is my favorite of my collection already and I plan to play this until the day I die. The only thing wrong with these new Player Strats is that Fender chose for some lame reason not to include a soft case which I think should absolutely have been made available for a Mexican made Strat for nearly $700. Anyone considering one of these Fender Player Strats needs to stop reading reviews like I did to make sure I was making the right choice and just buy one of these now! You will be so thankful when you do! I can’t thank zZounds enough for sending me this guitar in fabulous condition and finally allowing me to own such an incredible historic guitar. I am forever grateful!
