Fender’s new Road Worn Player Series takes the Road Worn experience a step further with hotter pickups, flatter fingerboards, and lightly aged finished treatments.

Scottsdale, AZ (January 10, 2011) — Fender’s new Road Worn Player Series takes the Road Worn 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 be broken in 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 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 Road Worn six-saddle strings-through-body bridge.

The first thing most guitarists think of when they hear the phrase “hybrid picking” is undoubtedly twangy Telecasters. While that may be the most common use of hybrid picking, it is far from the only application. Diving into hybrid picking opens a whole new world of control, timbre possibilities, ideas, speed, and more.
