The inspiring sound of a Stratocaster is one of the foundations of Fender. Featuring this classic sound—bell-like high end, punchy mids and robust low end, combined with crystal-clear articulation—the sonically flexible Player Stratocaster HSS is packed with authentic Fender feel and style. It’s ready to serve your musical vision, it’s versatile enough to handle any style of music and it’s the perfect platform for creating your own sound.  
Over the decades, players have been continually inspired by the sound of a Strat. From the clarity of the high end, through the gut punch of the mids and the solid lows, it's a sound that's helped define what an electric guitar should be—versatile enough for any style and broad enough for any player to find an individual voice. This limited-edition Player Series Stratocaster HSS Ebony Fingerboard electric guitar puts all of the classic features of the Strat at your fingertips while adding a modern edge, including a bridge-position humbucker and freshly redesigned 2-point fulcrum vibrato bridge. With a solid alder body, and a 22-fret maple fingerboard with a contemporary 9.5" radius for easy bending, the Player Series Stratocaster HSS is primed and ready to carry you along your musical voyage.

If you're the kind of Strat player who wants more punch out of the bridge position, this distinctive Fender Player HSS Stratocaster is made for you. It's got that classic look and feel that only a Strat can deliver, with the added muscle of a humbucking pickup, so you can go from glassy single-coil tones to heavyweight growl and scream with the flip of a switch. This special Strat features a cool look with black finish and black pickguard.
