Superb new series!
KindEdward 11.07.2018
First of all, I ordered this guitar because I was looking for a Fender Stratocaster but the American Professional Series was too expensive for my budget. I was quite lucky, because the moment I decided I wanted a real strat was the moment that the Player Series came out.

The good aspects:
- The sound is amazing. Great pick ups with a nice output.
- Satin finish on the neck makes it comfortable and easy to play.
- Flawless fret job.
- The colour is beautiful!
- Holds tune quite well even when abused by the two point tremolo system.
- Tone configuration for brigde pick up adds a new tone diversity to stratocasters that just was not there in the past.

The bad aspects:
- The Volume and Tone knobs feel a bit cheap in my personal opinion. Not such a tidy construction here.
- The tremolo block is a bit thin for my taste. I would expect a 555 euro guitar to have a solid and thick tremolo block, but sadly this is not the case.
- I would prefer if this guitar had a tortoise shell pickguard to better suit the white colour. But this is a matter of personal preference. I might purchase one eventually.

Nevertheless, the guitar plays great, sounds as you would expect from a Fender guitar and looks absolutely stunning. I am well satisfied with my purchase.

This might not happen in your country, but the delivery of this guitar took a staggering 7 days (week days) which is not a good service at all. The guitar arrived Friday on the 6th of July in the nearest UPS station in my country. But it was only delivered at my house the following tuesday on the 10th. The reason? Thomann misplaced my address and I had to call UPS, thus spending more of my personal income, since they charge you for phone calls, to solve this matter. Not pleased with my service. Thankfully, the guitar arrived in good condition, otherwise I would definitely issue a refund.
But this was the first time that it happened, so I'm positive it will not happen to anyone else.

Spectacular sound and value for money!

Having limited myself to heavier styles of music greatly featuring high gain humbuckers and gain through the roof, I've skirted around buying a Strat for some time. In the last few years however, I've broadened my musical horizons into more of a Bluesy territory, bought this guitar, and let me tell you... It sounds incredible!

Out of the box it tunes beautifully, the intonation is solid, and the stock hardware sounds great even plugged straight into my Blackstar/Orange amps without any effects processing. Comparing it to its USA counterparts I can honestly say that for this price there's no better instrument.

If you're on the fence about pulling the trigger, don't be. You'd be hard pressed finding a guitar that sounds this good at such a price!

Great guitar but broken
Oyvi 10.01.2022
This was my first Stratocaster and the first experience was a bit poor as the guitar made a ton of noise and even worse when played on. I have built some guitars from scratch previously and after some troubleshooting I found out that the jack on the guitar was faulty. I first tried resoldingering it but that didnt help much, ended up swapping it with a switchcraft jack and now its smooth as butter.

I could have contacted Thomann for a replacement but I live so far away that I decided to just fix it myself, I am planning on upgrading the pickups and tuners later anyway.

I love the color on this guitar, looks really great and its a shame you can't find a Player Plus in pure white.

The neck and playability are top notch on this guitar.
