Pickups and hardware
The pickup combination of a humbucker and two single-coils (HSS) is a popular one thanks to its versatility. The single-coil pickups in the neck and middle position provide thinner, yet smooth sounds - great for jazzy and blues-y playing but has also been well-used in the rock world. The humbucker in the bridge position is where you can get your big, powerful rock tones. Humbuckers provide a thicker sound and putting one near the bridge result in a biting, crunch-y tone that perfect for rocking out.
This guitar features a floating tremolo bridge so you can whammy away like Jimi Hendrix on his famous Strat. Fender's modern "C" shape necks are some of the most comfortable to play and fill your hand nicely.
The pack also comes with a Fender Frontman practice amp which is great for home playing and 10 Watts is plenty if you're playing in a band. The pack also comes with a gig bag, cable, guitar strap and picks mean you don't have to buy any extras to get practising from the off.
