Back in 2018, Fender replaced its Mexican-made Standard line with the Player series. Mixing classic designs with modern features and a mid-level price, the guitars were perfect for players looking for a true-blue Fender - in looks and tone - at a wallet-friendly price.
Now, Fender has added four new guitars to the Player range - the Mustang, Mustang 90, Duo-Sonic and the Duo-Sonic HS.
You can read more about each of the new guitars below.
Fender Player Series Mustang
The Mexican-made Mustang features an alder body, and a maple neck and fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. In the sonic department, it packs three single-coil pickups.
The Fender Player Series Mustang is available now - in Sienna Sunburst, Sonic Blue and Firemist Gold finishes - for $599.
Fender Player Series Mustang 90
The Player Mustang 90 features a string-through-body and P90-style pickups, perfect for a more hot-rodded and gritty sound than what one would get with a typical Mustang.
The Fender Player Series Mustang 90 is available now - in Seafoam Green, Aged Natural or Burgundy Mist Metallic Gold finishes - for $599.
Fender Player Series Duo-Sonic
The Player Duo-Sonic features an alder body, a 24” scale length, a maple neck and two Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups.
The Fender Player Series Duo-Sonic is available now - in Tidepool, Desert Sand and Seafoam Green finishes - for $599.
Fender Player Series Duo-Sonic HS
The Player Duo-Sonic HS features a choice of maple or pau ferro fretboards, a 24" scale length and a humbucker that can be split for single-coil sounds.
The Fender Player Series Duo-Sonic HS is available now - in Crimson Red Transparent, Ice Blue Metallic and Sienna Sunburst finishes - for $599.
