The Classic Player '60s Stratocaster combines classic design with contemporary upgrades appealing to guitarists everywhere at all levels. Designed by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Greg Fessler, it offers classic and contemporary elements with 1960s-era Strat® style and fine features such as custom '69 pickups with modern switching, the comfortable feel of a modern neck profile and flatter rosewood fingerboard, classic two-point synchronized tremolo bridge and much more.
A Classic Alder Body
The Classic Player Strat features an alder body, producing balanced, resonant tones with plenty of clarity and midrange bite ideal for the versatile musician. The alder tonewood provides a decent amount of sustain, creating bright, sizzling highs, beautifully rounded lows, and a beefy midrange. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice since the 1950s, as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing.
Maple Neck & Pau Ferro Fingerboard
The Fender Guitar’s maple neck provides bright tonal characteristics, tightening up the sound and giving it plenty of cut. The maple delivers a powerfully sharp punch when the strings are hit hard, whilst still retaining its clarity to allow each note to sing. The pau ferro fingerboard offers the same fundamental tones as a rosewood fingerboard, while the ''C'' shaped profile provides a smooth playing feel. The pau ferro also provides the Stratocaster with a warm, soft tone whilst helping to ‘fur up’ the maple’s natural sound. The neck and fingerboard combination provide the guitar with sparkling, sizzling highs, a thick, firm low end, and an open midrange with a snappy attack.
Custom '69 Single-Coil Pickups
The Classic Player Strat is equipped with three powerful Custom ’69 single-coil pickups, delivering a full, punchy tone which helped defined rock ‘n’ roll in the late 60s. Made with alnico 5 magnets and enamel-coated magnet wire, the pickups deliver beautifully warm, vintage characteristics with excellent dynamics and an enhanced focus. Period correct cloth wire and grey fibre bobbins complete its vintage feel, and the staggered pole pieces ensure the pickups deliver a balanced output. The Custom ’69 single-coils not only enhance the guitar with incredible tonal possibilities, but they work effectively with pedals as well.
Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut
Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the Fender Strat delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.
The History of the Stratocaster
When many people think of an electric guitar, this is the one that leaps to mind. The Stratocaster is one of the world's most popular guitars and is an elegantly versatile creation. Not long after Fender revolutionised music with the Telecaster and the Precision Bass, in 1954 they debuted the Stratocaster and it quickly became universally regarded as the archetypal electric guitar. Sleek and stylish aesthetics, smooth playing and tonally versatile, at the heart the Stratocaster remains a fantastic instrument - producing unmistakable sound with a timeless design. A first choice among players worldwide, there is simply nothing that sings, screams, whispers, moans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Fender Stratocaster.
