People Pleaser Stratocaster Honors Grammy Winner

by Mat Dirjish

Fender Musical Instruments unveils the Steve Lacy “People Pleaser” Stratocaster, the fruit of a collaboration with Grammy-winning guitarist, songwriter, and producer Steve Lacy. Rising to fame in 2015 as part of the alternative R&B and soul band THE INTERNET, Lacy has collaborated with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Solange, and Vampire Weekend.

The “People Pleaser” Strat boasts a broad tonal range. It combines Player Plus Noiseless pickups and an onboard, custom-voiced fuzz circuit, which promises classic dirty tones ranging from overdrive to all out fuzz. The Steve Lacy Chaos Fuzz circuit is reportedly/subjectively aggressive and expressive with sparkling crystal-clear high ends, throaty mids, and tight deep lows.

Flaunting Lacy’s unique “Chaos Burst” finish, the “People Pleaser” also features Fender’s established design elements such as an alder body and synchronized tremolo. Additionally, the custom neck plate sports Steve’s original artwork and the back plate has a unique blue and green checker pattern. Finally, a custom dice inlay tops off the axe.

Steve Lacy said, “The People Pleaser Strat, in a nutshell, is my dream guitar as a kid when I first started playing and my dream guitar as the guitarist I am today. It’s an ode to the old classic design that Fender is known for with all the new specs that make a guitar feel like home.”

US price for the Steve Lacy “People Pleaser” Stratocaster is $1,399.99. For greater gleanings, specs, and enlightenment, peruse the People Pleaser page.
