Fender | PLayer Plus Series

New Finishes and Features For The Contemporary Player

Fender celebrates the working musician with the Player Plus Series, core models with advanced features and brand new finishes designed to give contemporary players a leg up on the competition. Two Strats, two Teles, and three basses make up this end-of-summer splendor of Fenders. Let’s dive in. 

The Player Plus Stratocaster pushes a trio of Player Plus Noiseless Stratocaster pickups to the forefront, offering a buttery, hum-free tone with push-pull pickup switching for additional variety. High-performance features like a two-point tremolo, locking tuners, 12”-radius fingerboard with rolled edges, and a satin Modern “C”-shape neck make for a playing experience as inspiring as the brand new finishes. Choose from Opal Spark, Tequila Sunrise, Aged Candy Apple Red, Olympic Pearl, and the classic 3-Color Sunburst.

The Player Plus Stratocaster HSS offers a similarly electrifying experience, subbing in a humbucking pickup in the bridge for extra bite. Take your pick of Belair Blue, Cosmic Jade, Silverburst, and 3-Color Sunburst.

Fusing classic Fender design with player-centric features and exciting new finishes, the Player Plus Stratocaster delivers superb playability and unmistakable style.

At the heart of this Strat is a trio of Player Plus Noiseless pickups – bright and touch sensitive, they offer classic Strat tone without hum. A push-pull pot on the tone control adds the neck pickup to switch positions 1 and 2 for two sounds not usually found on a Strat. The silky satin Modern “C” Player Plus Strat neck fits your hand like a glove, with smooth rolled edges for supreme comfort. The 12” radius fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets facilitate fluid leads and choke free bends. Smooth and responsive, the 2-point tremolo provides classic vibrato effects, while the locking tuners provide rock-solid tuning and make string changes quick and easy.
