The Fender Player Series has had a few neat little updates for Spring 2023 including new finishes and also adding more left-handed options. Making the already popular guitar and bass range more appealing. With updates to both the Player Series and the Player Plus range.
Fender Player Series 2023
These Fender Player Series models have been given a small revamp for Spring 2023 and now have some more colour options. These include Candy Apple Red and Sea Foam Green for the Stratocaster, HSS Strat, Telecaster, Jazzmaster, Jaguar and Jaguar Bass models.
Modern C-shaped maple necks, all satin smooth and topped with 9.5” radius maple or Pau Ferro fingerboards, alder bodies finished in gloss and an F-stamped neck plate. They include 22 frets for the guitars, while the basses have 20 frets.
They all come fitted as standard with a set of the Player Series Alnico pickups, which are pretty decent all around and cover most bases. If you want a modern voiced set of pickups, then you will no doubt get on well with these.
The Player Plus Series, adds rolled-edge fretboards, and Fender Noiseless pickups. Plus some nicer gradient burst finishes, including Belair Blue and Tequila Sunrise. These also feature a flatter 12″ radius fretboard, which should hopefully suit modern playing styles more.
Models in this range include the Stratocaster (left and right-handed), Nashville Telecaster, Meteora, Precision Bass, Precision Bass LH, Jazz Bass and Jazz Bass V.
The Player Plus Series has new left-handed options. These are available for the Player Plus Strat LH models including the 3-Color Sunburst and Olympic Pearl with maple fretboards and Tequila Sunrise with Pau Ferro. Plus, there are a few left-handed bass models as well, the Player Plus Precision Bass in Belair Blue and 3-Color Sunburst.
