Superb MIM upgrade
makkker 08.10.2018
The body: huge, massive, robust body, compared to the former MIM standard. I resonates unbelievably well acoustically. The neck is somewhere between the modern C and very soft V. Very comfortable. Definitely a pro compared to the lighter body of the MIM standard.

The sound: it plays on a very wide range, however mainly it is a relatively hot strat sound. All pickups have more bass and a bit more high then for ex. a vintage sounding one. The clean is beautiful, and due to the hotter winding you reach a wide range of setups. If you dial back with the volume you can get close to vintage stuff as well. So If I ever change the pickups I'd keep this set, because its huge. I used it in one gig so far, and it held up the band surprisingly good compared to strats.

Build quality: as far as I can measure, it is perfectly built, no sharp edges, no extra laquer on the frets, and the buttercream color is love at first sight!

I would recommend the guitar and the service without hesitation.

This Fender MIM strat needs more work than three of my Harley Bentons (two electric one acustic).Guitar came with all tipical Fender flavs that i thought they menaged over the years.No sustain at all-two thick stickers in neck pocket, one on neck other in pocket that needed to be peel off, screw holes for neck to small- I drilled bigger so that neck can be thightened(screws cound not move free thru pocket holes), frets cutting in my hand -needed sanding, very poor quality tuners that I replaced with 22 euro Klusons that are ten times better than Fenders.I was very disapointed by this Strat, could not believe what Fender sells for 600 euros maybe more.

The guitar has its own pros and cons, but generally it didn't disappoint me.
Linas B 04.07.2021
First of all the color of guitar is absolutely stunning, real it looks even better than in picture, color is pure yellow.
Guitar sounds really well, but I have nothing to compare in that level, I had Squier before. So I can confidently say that Strat has much richer and solid timbre and sound.
The sixth string had a little buzzing, but I picked up bridge of that string and now it sound normally and purely.
I was worried a little bit about electronic noise when I was touching strings. After consultation with professionals and owners of Fender I came to the conclusion, that it’s probably absolutely normal for Fender guitars who has a single coil pickup, especially if you live in Eastern Europe in old houses with bad grounding in the circuit.
I’m happy with my guitar, and I will keep it with all the pros & cons.

Gorgeous guitar, terrible setup
Fran The Man 04.11.2019
As soon as I opened the box the buttercream colour made me scream: what a lovely lovely colour! The guitar is gorgeous. Classic look with a very modern feeling. The neck is smooth as silk and it is very easy to play.
The only flaw is the setup: terrible terrible setup! The guitar was out of tune with a super high action. the bridge needs some serious setup. I will replace the pickups with a Seymour Duncan YJM loaded pickguard. I will also install Fender locking tuners in order to improve tuning stability.

Overall: very good value for money. The Fender Player is a perfect guitar to start with. The guitar will grow up with you: you can change bridge, tuning keys, pickups...You will LOVE the buttercream colour and LOVE the neck feeling (the fretwork is not bad at all!). Maybe you will need a little bit of time to setup the guitar properly.
