The Return of Fender's "Super Strat"!
Fender's Deluxe Players Strat heralds the return of the "Super Strat" guitar. Several years back, Fender released an upscale Stratocaster with a surprisingly low price tag. Now the company gives us the Deluxe Player's Strat, an updated version of that model. Upgraded with Vintage Noiseless pickups, this guitar not only sounds sweet, but with a 12-inch neck radius and medium jumbo frets, it's a genuine workhorse. And, don't forget about the push button switch that gives you seven different pickup combinations! If you're a Strat cat looking for something special at a great price, the Fender Deluxe Players Strat is for you!
Fender Deluxe Player's Strat at a Glance:
- Superbly playable and supremely affordable
- The trademark Strat sound - plus!
- Fast Playing Maple Neck
There's not another Strat in the entire Fender line that offers up so much "bang for the buck"1 You start with that classic custom contoured Strat body with all its sleek lines. You can bend notes or entire chords up or down with the classic style synchronized tremolo unit, but you'll always stay in tune thanks to the ageless Leo Fender design. And consider this: There's no other Strat at this price point that offers access to so many pickup voicings - seven in all! Best of all, this wonderfully playable guitar comes with a surprisingly value-packed price tag.The trademark Strat sound - plus!
The original Strat had three single coil pickups, so it was able to produce sounds that no other guitar could deliver, particularly once guitarists discovered they could lodge the three-position pickup selector blade in those "in-between" positions to access neck / middle and bridge / middle pickup combinations. These were often erroneously referred to as the "out-of-phase" settings. The Deluxe Player's Strat ships with premium Classic Noiseless Strat pickups and a five-way blade switch, so you can easily access the extra pickup voicings. But that's not all! Like the original Super Strat, it adds a special push button that activates the bridge pickup in positions 4 and 5, giving the Deluxe Player's Strat seven possible pickup combinations for extraordinary tonal possibilities.Fast Playing Maple Neck
Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Deluxe Player's Strat comes with a one-piece maple neck and fretboard, but with a modern "C" shape and a flatter 12-inch radius for super smooth licks, runs and arpeggios.Fender Deluxe Player's Strat Features:
