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 Player Stratocaster 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.

The power trio of Player Series single-coil pickups are crisp and articulate - it's authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck's comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. By adding a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5"-radius fingerboard we've made it easier to express yourself musically. The updated 2-point tremolo design has smoother travel for enhanced playing feel while simultaneously giving you rock-solid tuning stability since there's less friction against the posts.

Other features include master volume and tone controls, a 5-way pickup switch, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal - as Fender as it gets. Own your tone and create something new with the Player Stratocaster.

Q & A


Question: Can a Floyd rose locking system be installed on this guitar? If EMG single coils are installed can a hole at the back of the guitar be routed out for the battery compartment?
- asked on Feb 12, 2024
Answer: If you want a Floyd Rose trem, it is wiser to buy a guitar that has one installed at the factory.

It could be done, but at an extreme price. It is not a practical aftermarket upgrade and would void your guitar warranty.

There should be room under the pick guard in the existing chambers for an active battery pack.

I agree with Patrick's review. I have a USA Strat and while they have maple vs Pau Ferro neck they both sound and play great. Dylan did a great low setup on this baby.

I bought this guitar last May at the Peterborough store and just love it. Just because it's put together in Mexico it's Fender through and through. I've had 2 American Strats and 2 Mexican and once one of Long $ McQuade's great guitar techs sets it up l can't find a single difference except the price. Less than half of an American made. In fact l just ordered a Mexican Fender Telecaster due in May. Very excited. You can't go wrong, these are quality guitars. 👌

had my eye on this Strat when l bought my Yamaha APX600 acoustic on Mon. Went back on Fri. And bought it. Owned several Strats over the years and l just love them. The staff are exceptional. John who has helped me with 2 guitars is very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Also a great musician. Its like a candy store for grown up. I just love Long & McQuade. Always have! Thanks guys Patrick

Love the sound and neck feel of the guitar. Only issue is that it goes out of tune quite often. More so when you use the whammy bar. Other then that, no complaints.

I agree with Fantastic Stratocaster. This is all you need for a really good quality, great sounding, pleasure to play Strat. I got the buttercream with Maple neck. Just love the way it plays. Take the $1000 you save over a Professional and invest in a 68 Fender Deluxe Reverb amp. Great combination for everything from blues to jazz to rock to funk, even more so with overdrive and delay pedals!

I tried the Fender Professional stratocaster in-store, and had it in my head that that's what I wanted. I saw the Player series stratocaster next to it, and snubbed my nose a bit at the non-USA made guitar, but decided "Ah what the heck" and gave it a go. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I really wanted the Professional stratocaster just to say I had a USA strat... but I genuinely enjoyed the Player stratocaster better! The neck felt butter smooth to me, more than the Professional. I couldn't justify the extra $1000 just to say I have a USA made guitar, especially not when the Player stratocaster felt better in my hands. This is my first stratocaster, and first Fender guitar, and I can say that I am thoroughly impressed. The pickups sound great, build quality is what I expect from a $1000 instrument and my guitar had absolutely no flaws or marks from shipping. The 3-tone sunburst is just gorgeous to look at. After approximately 3 months owning this guitar, I am really happy with my purchase and have absolutely no regrets - I know I made the right decision. Time to buy an amp with the $1000 I saved!

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
