Fender Announces New Additions To Their Player Series

-

Fender adds to their Player Series line of electric guitars and basses today with the addition of several new models, and a roster of modern artists singing the praises of their bold look, feel, design and playability.

The Series now features reimagined Mustang®, Duo-Sonic™ Duo Sonic™ HS, Mustang® 90, and Mustang® PJ Bass models in ten colors new to the Player Series, including Firemist Gold, Desert Sand, Aged Natural and Burgundy Mist Metallic. These offset electric guitars retail for $599.99, with the Mustang Bass PJ priced at $649.99, and are available at retailers and online now.

The Player Series continues to set the benchmark for quality and performance, with upgraded features, including: vintage-inspired pickups; modern “C” shaped necks for comfort; roadworthy hardware for reliable performance and easier setup; fresh colors; the classic Fender logo and “F”-stamped neck plate for a more authentic Fender look.

The Player Series was introduced in mid-2018, with the release of the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazzmaster and Jaguar models. The new line replaced the manufacturer’s Standard series, an affordable line of guitars and basses made in their Mexican factory.
