The Fender Stratocaster is considered by many guitarists, including many of us at Music Experience, to be the classic solidbody electric guitar. Introduced in 1954, the Strat has flaunted its svelte body curves, tonal dexterity, and expressive vibrato in the capable hands of guitarists cross-genre. At once a working musician's axe and cultural icon, the Fender Player Series Stratocaster HSS takes the grand tradition into the future with a fast-action 22-fret maple neck, vibrant vintage-inspired finishes, and a versatile trio of humbucker and single-coil Alnico pickups to cover wide swaths of contemporary and classic music.

Fender Player Series Stratocaster HSS at a Glance:

  • Alder body with gloss finish
  • One Player Series humbucking bridge pickup; two Player Series single-coil Stratocaster middle and neck pickups
  • “Modern C"-shaped neck profile
  • 9.5"-radius fingerboard
  • 2-point tremolo bridge with bent-steel saddles

    The timeless classic, with Player Series upgrades

    Though the original Stratocaster was first introduced more than 60 years ago, it's unquestionably more popular now than ever. The Player Series Stratocaster HSS combines the guitar's sleek, elegant lines with the perfect blend of vintage and modern features. You start with the classic comfort-contoured alder body, finished in gloss polyester and crowned with a 3-ply parchment pickguard, and add to it a trio of Player Series Alnico pickups and a fast, satin-backed, modern-playing maple neck.

    Versatile HSS pickup configuration

    The Player Series Strat HSS is equipped for a wide range of musical styles, from modern high gain to classic surf and country. Neck and middle Alnico V single-coils deliver all the quack, spank, and sparkle you expect from a Strat. Behind them, a moderate-gain Alnico II humbucker adds chunk to rhythms and heat to leads.

    Fast-playing modern C-shaped maple neck

    In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the Player Series Stratocaster HSS sports a comfortable modern C-shaped maple neck and a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets. The neck is finished with a smooth satin polyurethane for a sleek, fast feel. With its sleek body contours and highly playable neck, it's no wonder that the Fender Stratocaster has remained one of the most popular guitars on the planet for decades.
