Fender Player Series Upgrades Make this Timeless Classic Even More Appealing
Although the original Stratocaster was introduced over 60 years ago, it is still very popular. Fender's Player Series Stratocaster blends the guitar's elegant, sleek lines with modern features. The classic Comfort-Contoured Alder body is finished in gloss polyester. Next, a 3-ply parchment pickguard is added along with three Player Series Alnico 5 Stratocaster single-coil pickups. Fender Strat's original master volumes and two-tone pot configurations left the bridge pickup uncontrolled. The Player Series Strat has Tone 1 that operates on the neck and middle pickups, while Tone 2 is for the bridge pickup.
The Sound of a Stratocaster
Leo Fender-designed the original Stratocaster with three single-coil pickups. This allowed it to produce sounds like no other guitar, especially after players discovered that they could place the 3-position blade switch between the two positions to access polarity reversed neck/middle or bridge/middle combinations. This created what's affectionately known as the "Strat quack." Fender Player Series Stratocaster features three single-coil pickups that sound sweet. A 5-position blade switch selects them. This makes it easy to achieve those Strat sounds.
Modern C-shaped maple neck with fast playing speed
The Fender Player Series Stratocaster features a modern C-shaped maple neck and a 9.5-inch-radius fingerboard with 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.
