OVERVIEW

The authentic original model, evolved.

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.

Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

The 2017 Fender American Professional Stratocaster Sunburst Maple Neck is a very welcome evolution of the American made Stratocaster. Yes, i would agree this is no doubt a "professional" instrument. The neck feels great, the V-Mod pickups are wonderful, and the attention to detail is second to none.

    Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    So glad I waited because I feel like I struck gold and the reviews from much more seasoned pickers than myself only seams to verifies it. I was actually pretty content with my mexican standard and my jimmy vaughn strats but man these pickups are the sweetest!!! Always wanted a natural finish and they told me I got one of the first few made from a company close to corrona cal so that was another plus for me sorry m/f but you made plenty of my money anyway over the years I just thought i"d help you out with a good review to make up for it lol love you guys .

      Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      This new model is awesome. Widest range of any Strat pickups I've ever played, and over the past 36 yrs I have played alot of Strats. After a quick set up for my Boomer 11's I plugged in and found all my favorite strat tones plus some. The new pickups give you plenty of room to play around and explore. No its never gonna sound like a Les Paul, if you want a guitar that sounds like a Les Paul, you should buy one. However, the American Professional model has given Fender lovers a really amazing sounding and well built guitar for under $1500. The case is really nice too. Overall I'm very well pleased with the new model. The weight is just right, frets feel pretty classic, great tremelo, which I always test it out and then block off during my set up. If you're looking for a new strat, this is a very versatile guitar, school jazz band, blues, punk, classic rock, church, live shows or at home, this one will get it done. I've owned who knows how many strats in my lifetime, this is my new favorite.

          Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

          Top of the line Strat, my first top of the line Strat actually. Feels great to play, love the neck. Sounds great, the pickups are hot and very responsive. I hate that it came with 9's, just squishy and thin, but once I got some round core 10s on that bad boy it jumped under my fingers. It came from the factory perfectly set up, trem and neck were all exactly to spec. Excellent finish and overall quality. Frets are perfect and comfortable from top to bottom. The "narrow-tall" frets don't seem to feel much different to me, maybe it's a little easier to fret the note sharp, but not a big deal once I got used to it. It is making me want to get a better amp though so I can really hear what it can do. (here comes the G.A.S.)
