From Our Research Team:
Distinctive and DangerousThe FENDER® Modern Player Marauder heralds the encore of a near-mythical guitar of the '60s. If you're looking for a distinctive FENDER®, the Marauder is it. You get a comfortable offset-waist body, a fast C-shaped neck capped with a 9.5"-radius rosewood 'board and jumbo frets, and a vintage-style trem. The electronics are the kicker: a Jazzmaster™ pickup in the neck position serves up sweet single-coil chime, while a Fender Triplebucker at the bridge (yes, it's got three coils) spews out a pyroclastic surge of white-hot molten tone. Sweetwater has your weapon: the Fender Modern Player Marauder.
Fender Modern Player Marauder at a Glance:
The Modern Player Marauder has an offset-waist contoured body. There's something incredibly playable about Fender's offset-waist instruments (Jaguar, Jazzmaster™, and of course, the Jazz Bass). First of all, when seated with the guitar on your right thigh (if you're a righty), the design shifts the business end of the axe over to the left, so you're addressing the instrument pretty much straight-on. And playing in a standing position, you get the same comfortable playability. Our spines are forever indebted to Leo Fender for this slick innovation.
The Fender Modern Player Marauder has to have the most unusual electronics we've seen in a long while. For rhythm work, nothing beats a single-coil in the neck position. In the Marauder, a Jazzmaster pickup handles these duties flawlessly, giving you chimey spank and sparkle that's warmer than a Strat®, but without any loss of clarity. For take-no-prisoners lead tone, Fender's stationed a rare beast at the bridge. The Fender Triplebucker is a pit bull of a pickup. With three coils, you get thick, snarling output that's probably illegal in several states. A 5-way blade situated in the lower bout serves up the expected pickup combinations (including a drop-dead gorgeous 50/50 blend), plus a couple of very tasty coil-splits. Fender's Modern Player Marauder is a serious tone machine. And so affordable!
It's hard to think of the Fender Modern Player Marauder as an "entry-level" instrument. Throughout its history, Fender has always made a point of welcoming new players to the fold by offering high-quality, affordable entry-level instruments such as the Duo-Sonic, Mustang® and Musicmaster™ - all with beaucoup style, great tone, and awesome playability. The Modern Player series continues this great tradition, giving you modern features and fresh, unconventional takes on selected classic Fender instruments.

by Jimi Flemng from OKC, OKMy expectations were not extremely high because of the low price but I was hopeful when I ordered my new Marauder. I was pleasantly surprised, so much so I gigged it the very next weekend and ended u... read more [+]p playing it the entire night (MBoogie head and EV 12L cab)! The variety of tones made it unnecessary for me to change to one of the other guitars on stage (Les Paul, Thinline Tele, Strat). The true test was when our other guitarist was just as blown away with it through his rig (DR Z). At least 5 musicians in the crowd enquired about my new addition and have probably ordered their own by now. Worth twice the price, but don't tell Fender, I want another one while they're cheap! close [-]
