(SOLD) Fender Player Plus Stratocaster Aged Candy Apple Red 2021
Fender Player Plus Strat, faded candy apple, made in Mexico 2021. The Player Plus is the updated take on the Deluxe Strat from a few years back, so it's got some tasty hardware and specs to take things up a notch. The two point trem, locking tuners and push/pull control to add the neck pickup in are all nice touches. The previous owner upgraded the pickups to an American Vintage set, ditching the factory Noiseless singles... you're welcome, to be honest. Plugged in, it's a bright and snappy take on the classic Strat-spank. There's heaps of definition and chime and your notes still come out clearly with a generous dose of gain. The satin finished neck, with a shreddable 12" radius, feels very tidy too. The faded candy red finish is almost orange, almost pink, almost red... pretty cool, especially with the mint guard added. This is heaps of Strat for the cash, it'd scare some of those examples made a few miles North I'd wager.
