Priced well under a grand this limited-edition Fender Player Stratocaster HSS Plus Top is one of the best value electric guitars around. And with $110 off at Guitar Center this gorgeous Sienna Sunburst finish Strat just got even more attractive. Sporting an eye-catching flame maple cap and HSS pickup configuration Fender’s ultimately versatile design has been souped up to deliver even greater breadth of tone.
Appearing as a regular option for Fender guitars in 1981, Sienna Sunburst is a head-turning alternative to the more traditional 2- and 3-tone sunburst finishes. Adding to this guitar’s appeal is its flame maple cap – a feature more often associated with the Gibson Les Paul Standard aka ‘Burst.
Indeed, with its translucent sunburst finish and striking maple grain this unique Strat appears to marry up the iconic looks of both golden era classics perfectly.
Versatility is the name of the game here. Featuring an HSS (humbucker, single coil, single coil) pickup configuration the already dynamic Stratocaster is primed for action in virtually any situation – it’s bridge humbucker set to deliver the kind of chunkier, gain-friendly tone often favored by blues, hard rock and metal players.
While the essential ingredients of Fender’s classic design remain intact this distinctive Stratocaster also features some more modern appointments such as a 2-point fulcrum Tremolo bridge and a 22-fret maple fingerboard with a bend-friendly 9.5" radius.
