Fender Introduces Road Worn™ Player Series Guitars
Fender’s popular Road Worn Series instruments struck a chord with guitarists with their aged, well-played look and feel. Now the new Road Worn Player Series takes the experience a step further with hotter pickups for smoldering, gritty tone; flatter fingerboards for smooth, effortless bends; and lightly aged finished treatments that make the three new guitars feel immediately comfortable and familiar. And all are designed to have broken-in feel without breaking the bank.
All three new Road Worn Player Series guitars—Road Worn Player Series Stratocaster®, Road Worn Player Series Stratocaster HSS and Road Worn Player Series Telecaster®—feature an alder body with a lightly worn lacquer finish, modern “C”-shaped maple neck with a lightly worn urethane finish, three-ply pickguard, aged knobs and switch tip, and deluxe gig bag.
The Road Worn Player Series Stratocaster has a maple fretboard with 9.5” radius and medium jumbo frets, Texas Special™ single-coil pickups, five-way switching, and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge. The Road Worn Player Series Stratocaster HSS has a rosewood fretboard with 9.5” radius and medium jumbo frets, Texas Special™ neck and middle pickups, Seymour Duncan® Pearly Gates humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching and a vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.
The Road Worn Player Series Telecaster has a maple fretboard with 9.5” radius and medium jumbo frets, Tex Mex™ single-coil bridge pickup and Seymour Duncan® ’59 humbucking neck pickup, three-way switching and a Road Worn six-saddle strings-through-body bridge.
