The Fender Player Series Stratocaster HSS
Many guitarists consider the Fender Stratocaster to be the best solidbody electric guitar. The Strat was introduced in 1954 and has been admired for its slim body curves, tone dexterity, expressive vibrato, and tonal dexterity. It is also suited for guitarists of all genres. The Fender Player Series Stratocaster HSS is a cultural icon and a musician's axe. It features a 22-fret maple neck and vibrant vintage-inspired finishes.
An Amazing Player Series Guitar
Although the original Stratocaster was introduced over 60 years ago, it is still very popular today. The Player Series Stratocaster SSS blends the guitar's elegant, sleek lines with modern features. The classic comfort-contoured alder frame is finished in gloss polyester, topped with a 3-ply parchment pickguard, and then added to that a trio Player Series Alnico pickups, as well as a quick, satin-backed, modern playing maple neck.
Flexible HSS Pickup Configuration
The Player Series Strat HSS can be used for various musical styles, including country, surf, and high gain. The neck and middle Alnico IV single-coils provide all the quack, sparkle, and spank you would expect from a Strat. A moderately-gain Alnico II Humbucker adds bulk to rhythms and heats to leads. These solid body electric guitars give players power and confidence at their fingertips.
Modern "C" Maple Neck Fast-Playing
The Player Series Stratocaster HSS features a modern C-shaped maple neck, a 9.5-inch radius fingerboard, and 22 medium-jumbo frets. Smooth satin polyurethane is used on the neck for a fast, smooth feel. It's easy to see why the Fender Stratocaster is one of the most beloved guitars on earth. The quality and clarity of the fretboard of this model fit any playing style.
