Fender Stratocaster: Player vs Performer vs Professional What are the differences?


From Jimi Hendrix to Eric Clapton the Fender Stratocaster is iconic! Over the years there has been many different models of Stratocasters at different price points. Now we have the Player the Performer and the Professional, but what are the differences? | http://tinyurl.com/y6cqhn7m

The Fender Stratocaster is likely the most iconic guitar ever made. With a shape that has inspired countless other brands to follow suit, its influence is indisputable. Gracing countless stages in the hands of many worldrenowned guitar players, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck to name a few, you know if you pick up a strat you’ll be playing the best of the best.

Several key differences separate the Player, Performer and Professional series of Strats. Made in Fender’s Mexicanbased Ensenada factory, Player series guitars stand as the entrylevel and most affordable of the three ranges. That said, they are totally uncompromising on quality and playability. Featuring a wide range of hardware & pickup configurations and finishes, the Player series guarantees something for everyone.

A slight step up in price, the Performer series is the most affordable USmade range of Fender guitars. Formerly known as the American Special series, the Performer doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but rather builds upon the stable foundation of the tried and tested Special. Featuring newlydesigned Yosemite and DoubleTap pickups, smooth satinfinished necks and available in some tasteful colour options, there’s no reason why these guitars can’t stand proudly alongside their more highend counterparts. With each model coming with a Fender Deluxe Gig Bag, you can perform with these instruments nightafternight just as their names suggest!

Finally, the Professional series encapsulates all the greatness of Fender Americanmade instruments.It’s a reimagining of the classic design from the ‘50s, housing new electronics and shaped ever so slightly different to improve the overall playing experience. All the retro tone, none of the clunky playability. Each pickup is specifically voiced for its position, be it in the bridge, middle or neck positions. Pickup master Tim Shaw designed the alnico VMod single coils to produce powerful nuanced tones and sound punchy combined with the treblebleed circuit. The neck has a deep C shape embedded with tall narrow frets, so you get a hint of the retro flavour with the smoothness of a modern guitar.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Let me first say that I am not sponsored by Fender in any way. I make these history videos for educational purposes, my own, and hopefully as a result, yours. I hope you enjoy it. You’ve been asking for this one…

This is my short history of the Fender Stratocaster,. You might think that “short” here in the title is something of a misnomer, but the history of about 30 years worth of guitars is packed in to this.

I am fully aware that I couldn’t fit every single model here (I actually learned of many I’d NEVER heard of during the research) but tried to choose each guitar for its effect on the direction the model took as time went by.

I’m sure I can count on you to add those in the comments. 🙂

Two books in particular helped in pulling the video together. These are Amazon links and we get a small percentage from Amazon to help support the channel. Thanks

I need to thank Perry McManis for reviewing the script and for his helpful additions/corrections from the deep well of his Stratocaster knowledge base.

Mr. McManis wrote and plays the Strat on the intro/outro music and if you want to know how much delay you can put on a track…he’s the guy to listen to. The tune here is “If a Group of Crows is a Murder, Why Isn’t a Group of Ravens a Massacre?” You can here it and others at his channel link below.

And I need to thanks Dave Onorato of Dojo Guitar Repair in Atlanta, Georgia. Dave has been helped me from brainstorming to final fact checking scripts and for that I am grateful.

I’d add that some subscribers have commented on the seeming “duality” of the channel. Encouraging minimalism while posting histories of instruments that might, in some, inspire passing (or prolonged) moments of gear lust. This is not my intention. I have come the long way around to learning to think something is beautiful without feeling that I need to own it. It is perhaps a fine distinction but also one I believe we should take more time to ponder.

Thanks for watching.

"Pick of the Day" 1961 Fender Stratocaster Twin and Reverb


It’s all 1961 Fender today, and starting with the guitar we have a beautiful original Stratocaster! The only changes to this guitar over the years has been a very high quality refret. A bit of wear but only what is to be expected, and this lightweight guitar really sings! Today we have Jay to tell you all about it before handing things off to Aaron Hiebert for a demo through a 1961 Twin that came to us from the Black Crows, and a 1961 Fender Reverb tank that has sold since we shot the demos.

The Yamaha is a better value, but I like the glassy chime of the Fender single coils better than the Seymour singles. I’d get the Yamaha, swap pickups and drop in CTS pots. Spending a little extra but I’d have a guitar that need no improvements……. or I’d get the Fender, put Hipshot locking tuners on it ( no drilling!) and drop a S.D. Little ‘ 59 in the bridge! Sigh. Decisions, decisions…….

Instead of cranking the trem arm by the tip, you can spin it in with your finger easily once the threads have caught. Once it hits the spring, it's under tension and you can easily put it wherever you want, where it will stay in place. It's older trems without a spring that strip out the threads and can never bottom out anywhere. The spring-supported screw-in arm is my favorite design, I've never found another that will both allow for easy movement AND stay securely in place once you position it. I have an Ibanez Team J-Craft RG with a pop-in arm with silicone bushing and a replacement bushing in the case. both wore out in the first month of ownership, after relatively infrequent use. The flare-nuts on Floyd Rose bridges are designed to tighten down and stay.

Pacificas are way more expensive than Players here in Europe. 775euro vs 640 euros, which is opposite to the US. Converted to euros a pacifica would 551 euros in the US. That's a near criminal difference in price. You can litterally buy an extra 112 pacifica with the difference and have change left to buy some accesoiries.
Still going for the pacifica though. It outspecs the fender on nearly everything. And also because everyone and their mom has a Fender. And the pacifica is a real looker in contrary to a Player which to be honest looks simple and boring. The guitar is going on my livingroom wall, it needs to look beautiful. I'm going for the indigo blue version of the pacifica.

Darrell, would you do a review of the Tagima Stella DW? I've been searching for a detailed quality review in English. Also, I recently bought a Player Strat and am thinking of switching to the Yamaha for the versatility and better quality. But a local shop sells the Tagimas, and they are gorgeous.

One factor not mentioned is resale value. I think the Fender will likely hold its value better than the Yamaha. Yamaha are not a budget guitar brand but they do cater for the lower price point more than Fender, and I think it was probably a marketing own goal to use the pacifica name on a mid price instrument. A new name would likely challenge the player series more effectively.

Reply
Mark Phillips 01/09/2021 - 16:13

Seems funny to say the Yamaha has got locking tuners and the Fender hasn't; I believe all tuners are locking tuners as all have a worm gear acting at right angles to a plain gear; so the Fender tuners are just as much locking as the Grovers.
The Fender fretboard looked smarter to me, but funny to praise the non sticky satin back of the neck and say the fretboard of the Yamaha wants to be shiny… though I would go for the Fender fretboard.

It stands to reason that Yamaha should offer at least one Pacifica with the SSS pickup configuration, yet they do not. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.

Coil splitting a humbucker (a feature offered by Yamaha for the various & sundry Pacifica variations) does not yield a traditional single coil tone. That’s been my experience as a player over the last 40 years.

So….

Darrell…is there any reason that you’re aware of as to why none of the Pacifica line is offered in a SSS pickup configuration?

Robert Johnson 01/09/2021 - 16:13

You are way too hung up on small pots and carpet switch. I agree it is not as nice to have cheaper pots and switch, but in terms of tone and perform you wouldn’t know unless you looked under the hood. So it is a very minor issue compared to things that act affect tone and performance right out of the box

I love both a lot but if I were gigging every single day I'd probably choose the Yamaha for versatility as well as it being an overall awesome guitar. Id keep the fender as my studio buddy!

Anyone in Canada looking for a strat style should check out the Godin Session. Incredible value and quality made here (or in the New Hampshire factory).

That said, I usually feel like strats are lackluster, especially in a sea of copies. Even though they are the original, they don't stand out. The one in this video however is absolutely fantastic! The flame top, cherry burst, black pickguard with white electronics is just a perfect combination.

I've referred to Pacificas as the best guitars nobody wants, because I used to look at the tons of listings and people were selling them dirt cheap or asking for trades for a strat. I like that the newer models finally went with a covered humbucker outside of the pickguard instead of the exposed bobbins in a rectangular cutout leaving visible holes. That said, I find it is visually unappealing, the color and shape of the pickguard, the overall body shape and massive forearm carve, the big bold Seymour Duncan logo on a small single coil, the switch and knob configuration. It's all little details but the sum of all its parts is just not for me.

Put fender aftermarket pots & switches in the Yamaha and then polish the frets. Then you will have the way best guitar !

Smaller pot doesn't mean bad pot. They're just smaller!
