Often copied, but never surpassed, the
Stratocaster is arguably the world’s most-loved
electric guitar. Electrifying the music world
since its debut in 1954, its natural, versatile
sound made the Stratocaster the benchmark
for exceptional guitar tones. The American
Professional Stratocaster isn’t a re-imagining
of the classic design; it’s the authentic original
model, evolved.
The choice of musical legends since its release,
the Stratocaster feel and sound set the world on
fire, powering music movements from electric
blues to EDM, and everything in-between. In
your hands this Strat is ready to navigate the
creative twists and turns of your music, inspiring
you to express yourself in new ways through your
playing.
Developed by pickup master Tim Shaw, the
brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced
specifically for each position, mixing alnico
magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced
tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high
end clarity when adjusting the volume controls,
thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that
lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The
new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels
just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets
make it easy to bend strings accurately and play
perfectly intonated chords.
The best of yesterday and today, the American
Professional Stratocaster is the latest form of
electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and
stake your claim to a legend.
