Fender FSR Player Stratocaster Black, Gold HW, Maple Neck Overview

This model is exclusive to GAK!

The Fender Player Series was designed for players who want classic designs by a renowned brand, tonal versatility and great value for money, making them great for beginners who want a high-quality guitar.

FSR stands for ‘Fender Special Run’. These are limited edition guitars that are made to order at the request of individual retailers, switching out certain specs for something more unique and fresh.

The Fender FSR Player Stratocaster has an Alder body that delivers a strong, clear, full-bodied sound, and has been used by Fender since the mid-50s. The neck is made from maple, a durable wood, and has a modern ‘C’ shape profile making it comfortable to play. The fretboard is also made from maple, which provides a snappy response, and has 22 medium jumbo frets and a 9.5” radius.

The FSR Player Stratocaster has a 2-point synchronised tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles. A 2-point tremolo means it has two mounting points that attach it to the guitar’s body, as opposed to six. In general, it makes the guitar stay in tune better. There’s also standard cast/sealed tuning machines and a synthetic bone nut.

For pickups, this Fender Strat has three Player Series Alnico 5 Strat single-coil pickups, which have a higher output, increased bass, and a clear high end. This classic SSS pickup configuration provides great articulation, brightness and is incredibly versatile. The 5-position blade lets you easily switch between different tones with ease.

The Fender FSR Player Stratocaster is completed with a 3-ply mint green pickguard, gold hardware, and a gloss finish.

This is a really good, affordable Fender Stratocaster for all levels of player, just as Leo Fender intended.

Great Fender Strat at a great price. Good set up straight from the box. Looks great with the gold hardware. The mint green scratch plate sounds like an unusual choice but it works really well. Everyone has commented that it doesn't look like a standard Strat. Well worth the investment!
