The new Fender Classic Player Stratocaster has been given a design overhaul by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov, blending together features from the 60s and 70s with some modern appointments to create a truly awesome electric guitar.
Sleek Strat Curves
The Classic Player Strat has a double-cutaway body shaped from alder, a rich sounding tonewood that has been favoured by Fender since the mid 50s thanks to its sweetly balanced tone. Delivering a forceful mid to low-end punch, a crisp high-end energy cuts through with precision. The body has been finished with a distinctive dark Mercedes blue finish that is protected by a slender gloss polyester coating, allowing the paintwork to age gracefully and develop a unique visual character.
Fast Playing Maple Neck
The shapely maple neck has been carved to the 60s "C"-profile, giving it a substantial feel in the hand. Married to the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, home to 21 medium-jumbo frets that are a dream to navigate. The maple/rosewood partnership guarantees a fast-acting attack, which ensures that every note sings with the utmost articulation.
Electronics With Muscle
The Classic Player Strat is fitted with a pair of wide range special humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. Thanks to the specially designed electronics, a variety of tonal outputs are available for you to carve out incredible sonic detail. There is a master volume control, as well as individual tone controls for each pickup. Using the 5-way pickup selector you can choose from a selection of pickup wirings, including coil taps on each pickup to go from dense, fat humbucker tones to raw single-coil power.
Let your creative juices flow through the 2-point synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles. Adding subtle vibrato to each and every note couldnt be easier, and you can rest assured that the bridge will return to starting position quickly and seamlessly. The strings are kept in tune fastidiously by the vintage style tuning machines, whilst the synthetic bone nut maintains string tension perfectly for consistent intonation.
The Fender Classic Player Stratocaster in dark Mercedes blue is a dream model that combines stunning good looks with a playability that is at once enjoyable, and allows you to glide through performances with the greatest of ease. The tonal versatility on offer means that you can seamlessly flow through differing musical styles without having to change your instrument, so you can get on with doing what you do best.
