Product Description

The inspiring sound of a Fender 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 stunning Player Stratocaster Plus Top 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 Fender's heritage while maintaining their 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 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 the stage and create something new with the Player Stratocaster Plus Top.

Overall: I really wanted to check out this guitar after reading about the features and seeing reviews. I was originally going to buy the 3 color sunburst, but when I saw the plus top at the same price, I went for it. The aged cherry is really cool. Aesthetically, it is a beautiful instrument, from the stunning finish to the quality hardware, pick guard,etc.. This guitar has a very comfortable neck that is extremely easy to play. I'm used to a v-shaped neck profile, so the c shape of this one took a few minutes to get used to. Now I can't put it down.This is a 22 fret guitar, one more than the previous standard model, which is really nice.The trem was set up nice right out of the box. It stays in tune remarkably well, even when subjected to some pretty exaggerated string bends. Sound-wise, I am pleased. Great clean tones with that characteristic voice that is the reason to play a strat. Overdriven tones are awesome as well. This is wired so one tone control is assigned to the bridge pickup, which is a change in design. I have read these pickups are supposed to be slightly different from the ones in the standard. I don't hear a drastic difference from most strats, which I consider to be a good thing. The 5 position switch feels pretty smooth & sturdy, providing a smorgasbord of delicious tone possibilities. Overall, this is very handsome guitar that plays and feels great, delivering that classic tone we all grew up trying to capture. This instrument comes without a case or gig bag. If that is important to you, it is a consideration. Personally, I've already got too many cases & bags. The way I see it, this is a very affordable guitar considering the quality and features.They could include a gig bag and probably round up the price to cover it, or sell it without one so you can get a hardshell case if you prefer for not much more than a good gig bag. Anyway, that's just my opinion. If you're looking for a stratocaster, I highly recommend one of these. Do your research, though, because there are many configurations available in the player line, and they're all reasonably priced.

Overall: The Fender Player Stratocaster Plus Top in Aged Cherry Burst is an instrument that combines arresting good looks with a silky smooth playing experience. A full, comfortable C-shape neck, 3 of Fender's finest Alnico V pickups. And it's a Strat. If you've been playing guitars for more than the time it took me to write this review, you know why a Strat is awesome. The Player Series Stratocaster is a little pricey, especially with the flamed maple top, but it's well worth the money.
