Fender - Limited Edition Player Stratocaster®, Maple Fingerboard, Pacific Peach
The Fender Limited Edition Player HSS Stratocaster is the smooth big cat of the Fender family. Don't be fooled by the appearance, this guitar is sure to stand out on any stage, helping you slice straight through the mix. The bridge humbucker is accompanied by two single coils that combine for another realm of tonal versatility - which will allow you to access everything from an extremely powerful, high output growl to a more vintage, twangy Strat sound. Explore your creativity without having to retune between every song thanks to the synchronised tremolo bridge, no matter how intensive the whammy action.
Constructed from alder, the body of this fine instrument is finished with a black pickguard and wrap, complemented by the chrome hardware and complete with a tonal warmth that only comes from the finest materials. The ebony fingerboard not only provides a durable and comfortable launchpad for your playing, but also completes the darkened visuals for a stunning, sleek aesthetic. The neck itself is constructed from maple - which helps you to achieve that bright twang so often affiliated with the Stratocaster sound - into a modern 'C' profile, ensuring a supremely comfortable playability that will minimise any strain through intensive sessions.
An almighty sound
The Kramer Striker HSS is designed to deliver a sound that is both powerful and natural - which is why Kramer have built this guitar using premium tonewoods alongside Alnico pickups. The alder body ensures a glorious resonance, lightweight feel and tonal warmth, which combines to offer wonderful playability as well as a unique sound. It's paired with an all-maple neck and ebony fingerboard, which balances out the mix with a lively brightness for a rounded tonal palette which can be moulded to suit your sound. The best thing about these kinds of timber build is that the tonewoods mature as they lose moisture over time - rewarding you with tonal development and multiple uses.
The Alnico pickups are where you can really explore your own unique voice. These powerful, but completely tailorable, pickups range from subtle and soft to all-out destruction, and will respond no matter how far you push them. On the neck, you'll find more rounded and warm tones that will deliver well at lower outputs with a more delicate, subtle sound - but will also work well with distortion, especially in the lower end. On the bridge, you have the humbucker, which provides a huge sound that will slice through any mix, juxtaposing the sound of the other two single coils and delivering the ultimate tonal versatility.
Comfort and style
The Kramer Striker HSS is complete with a beautiful aesthetic that is the perfect balance of striking and understated. Both vintage and modern, the instantly recognisable body shape is complemented by a gorgeous gloss black wrap. The neck also features a satin finish, which will help you to race up and down the neck and fingerboard at lightning speed and pinpoint accuracy. What's more, the neck itself is designed with a modern ‘C’ profile, accentuating its manoeuvrability for an innovative performance that will push your playing further than ever before.
The 2-point bridge includes block saddles to provide a fantastic playing feel, ensuring comfortable action alongside precise intonation that can be easily altered to fit. All of these design features are included for you convenience, so you can focus solely on your performance – and with a guitar that sounds as good as this one, you’ll have no trouble blowing your audience away every time.
