Fender American Professional Stratocaster — the Best of Yesterday and Today
The Fender American Professional Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar has been crafted to give you the best design elements from classic vintage Strats and the most popular modern features in one gig-ready instrument. Tim Shaw designed the three V-mod single-coil pickups for a vintage voice that is balanced across all the switch positions. Fender’s popular neck carve has been enhanced to a Deep-C profile that fits your hand comfortably. The Fender American Professional Stratocaster has all the elements that make Fender guitars legendary, and much more.
The Guitar that Changed the World
There may not be a model of solidbody electric guitar that is more ingrained in modern culture than the Fender American Professional Stratocaster. Its finely sculpted body, groundbreaking tremolo design, and clear-as-a-bell trio of single-coil pickups come together in an instrument that is embraced by players in every genre of music around the world. This Fender American Professional Stratocaster is the direct descendent of all those iconic guitars. And it boasts all the same features, playability, and versatility that defines the instrument.
Balanced, vintage-voiced electronics
A great set of vintage Strat single-coil pickups should be crystal-clear sounding, enhance your playing nuance, and be able to get gritty and aggressive when needed. Pickup guru Tim Shaw designed this set of V-mod single-coils to do just that. But unlike vintage pickups, the V-mod single-coils are crafted with different alnico magnets in each pickup. This means you’ll enjoy consistent output across all the pickup positions on the Fender American Professional Stratocaster. And the onboard treble bleed circuit ensures your tone stays clear and present when lowering the guitar’s volume.
Custom Shop-influenced neck
The Deep-C neck profile that you’ll find on the Fender American Professional Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar is a slight upgrade from the Fender American neck players have been in love with for years. By adding a touch more roundness to the back contour, the Deep-C carve fits your hand perfectly while never inhibiting your technique. And your fingers will immediately notice how much control they have on the fretboard’s narrow-tall frets. For good reason, this fret wire is the most requested size at the Fender Custom Shop.
Fender American 2-point tremolo
A Fender American Professional Stratocaster wouldn’t be a Fender Strat without the non-locking tremolo design that turned the world on its ear in the early 1950s. The American Professional Stratocaster boasts an updated take on that design that meets the needs of today’s players. Its 2-point construction makes action adjustments a breeze, while providing plenty of stability. And the pop-in arm mechanism is extremely convenient, holds the tremolo arm from having too much play, and allows you to adjust the tension on the arm.
