The best value Fenders ever? Why it's time to revisit the Player Series

For over 70 years Fender have been at the forefront of guitar manufacturing. After starting out as a radio repairman, Leo Fender transitioned into the world of electric guitar during the birth of the American Rock ‘n Roll scene, establishing himself as a true pioneer of modern music. With iconic designs like the Stratocaster, Telecaster and the Precision bass it’s easy to see why Fender have remained a staple in every guitarist’s arsenal. 

Excellence, innovation and passion are some of Fender’s key values, values to which they have stuck by and followed for generations. With an artist roster ranging from soulful blues guitarists to the heaviest of modern metal players, there really is a Fender guitar for everyone. 

In the spirit of accessibility, Fender launched the Player Series range in 2018. Expanding on the success of the Mexican Standard they offer an affordable way for everyone to experience what makes Fender so special. As the first step into Fender’s electric guitar offering, it brings timeless design and iconic style to the masses.

These instruments bring Fender into the modern era whilst staying true to Leo’s original vision

All of Fender’s iconic designs are present, whether you’re a traditionalist after a classic Stratocaster or Telecaster, or perhaps you’re seeking something a little more adventurous like a double humbucker Telecaster you’re sure to be satisfied… There’s even a Floyd Rose-loaded Strat! 

The alder bodies ensure a rich and full sound with beefy mids and excellent lows. Paired up with a bolt-on maple neck with a choice of pau ferro or maple fingerboard, they deliver killer sustain with tonnes of clarity and tonal richness. Blending vintage appeal with modern features, like a 9.5” radius and 'Modern C' neck shape, these instruments bring Fender into the modern era whilst staying true to Leo’s original vision.
