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 Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    This is my first strat and I am very pleased. I got the olive with rosewood. Absolutely stunning to look at! PUPs are low output compared to my humbucker guitars but that is to be expected. Neck feels great. Light guitar. Set up was ok, but had to remove the 9's strings and put on 10's. Sounds and feels much better. The hard shell case is ridiculous...meaning it is the best case I've seen! Being this is my first strat, I wasn't sure what to expect tone wise. It is thinner, but not in a bad way. Also...while noisier than my humbuckers, it wasn't as bad as I expected.

    Very nice guitar. I am very pleased with it.

    Great Job Fender

    Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Bought a blemished Sienna Burst and couldn't even find a scratch on it. Love the fact that the bridge pickup has tone control now. The neck is fast and smooth (rosewood) and the frets are dressed well. Had to setup the guitar the way I like it but the intonation is pretty much perfect. Looking forward to playing my next gig with this guitar.

      Fantastic quality strat from Fender. I'm so happy the folks at Fender have returned to making great strats over these last few years. Plays fantastic right out of the box and my chickens dig it.

      I already had a tele from the new american professional series and loved it so much that i had to get a strat to go along with it. Great feeling neck and the narrow/tall frets make bending a breeze..
