Fender Player Series – The Real Thing

With timeless designs, and iconic sound and style, the Fender Player Series electric guitars and bass guitars are built on the foundation of legends.

Fender has been building guitars in Mexico for many years, and these have become well-known among players to be the absolute sweet spot to get the most bang for your buck.

The Player Series is the current iteration of these Mexican made workhorses… and nothing has changed. As the name suggests, designed with the player in mind, and built to the highest standards and specs, these guitars really are the real thing.

A wide range of Player guitars and basses are currently available in South Africa at great prices so you can start your musical legacy with authentic Fender tone and feel without busting the bank.

The Tone

Designed for authentic Fender tone—with a bit of an edge—the Player Series alnico single-coil, split-coil and humbucking pickups keep a foot in the past while looking to the future.

The Feel

There’s no denying the smooth playing feel of a Fender. The “Modern C”-shaped neck’s comfortable contours are ideal for almost any playing style, and the bodies are hand-shaped to original specifications.
