Play lead with style, power and versatility with a comfortable, easy-to-play Fender.

In response to low-priced import competition, Fender created the Lead Series in 1979, featuring a new solidbody design, hardtail bridge and cool new wiring options. Appealing to a wide variety of players, the sleek new Lead models kicked off a fresh creative era in Fender's history.

The Player Lead III, a tribute to the original 1982-only model, features a set of hot Alnico V Player humbucking pickups, dual-toggle switches for pickup selection and coil-splits and a modern "C" neck shape with medium jumbo frets.

The Player Lead Series offers style, power and versatility in a comfortable, easy-to-play package.
