Fender Player Series Stratocaster HSS, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, Black
Fender Player Series Strat HSS, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, Black
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 Series 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.
This Stratocaster features a two-point tremolo bridge for smooth, superior tremolo action – and Player Series Stratocaster pickups designed for authentic Fender tone with a bit of an edge. They're a crisp, articulate and modern tweak of Fender's classic sound. A humbucker in the bridge position makes this an even more tonally versatile guitar. A 22-fret neck in modern C shape extends playable range, in comfort. You'll also enjoy more control over your sound in pickup positions one and two, via our dedicated bridge pickup tone control.
Replay Guitar Exchange is proud to offer Fender's Player Series HSS Strat in classic Black. As always, feel free to contact our store for more details, or with any questions.
