A Ton of Strat for the Money!

The Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS solidbody electric guitar gives you genuine Strat tone and playability at an unheard-of price! Of course, you get the classic spank and sparkle of two Modern Player single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, but this Strat's brandishing a couple of secret weapons. A Modern Player humbucker smolders at the bridge, awaiting your command to attack. Then there's the bridge pickup coil-split switch hidden in the second tone knob. With this setup, a universe of tone awaits you. You can't pass up a deal as good as the Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS!

A ton of Strat for the money

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 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, such as the Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS.

H/S/S pickup configuration serves up a universe of tone

The Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS sports the classic "Fat Strat" pickup configuration. For decades before Fender actually got the news and made one, players were modding their Stratocasters by replacing the bridge single-coil with a hot humbucker. This is a real ear-opener. You get the expected chime-like "spank 'n' sparkle" from the single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, while a dangerous humbucker sits at the bridge, waiting to be unleashed. Armed with a Fender Modern Player Strat HSS (with its shredtastic jumbo frets) no solos is beyond your reach. If you've never experienced a humbucker-equipped Strat before, be prepared the first time you jam the blade all the way down. It's like kicking in rocket boosters.

Aah, the "bridge pickup coil-split switch hidden in the second tone knob" ploy

This one's a real secret weapon, because no one (except you) knows it's there! We've waxed poetic over humbucker-equipped Strats, but the Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS has another trick up it's sleeve. Nestled innocently into the second tone control, is a coil-tap for the humbucker. If you're still with us, you're by now realizing the full implications of this stealthy arrangement: tonally speaking, you can have it all. In fact, you have an additional coil, above and beyond a standard 3-single-coil Strat config. Wow. Factor in the rock-bottom price, and the Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS is an irresistible proposition.

Fender Modern Player Stratocaster HSS Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A genuine Strat that's genuinely affordable!
  • Alder body; C-profile maple neck with 9.5" radius rosewood fingerboard and 22 jumbo frets
  • H/S/S pickup configuration with one humbucking and two single-coil Modern Player Strat pickups
  • 5-Position Blade; Push/Pull Rear Coil Selector Switch on Tone Control 2
