What makes this guitar special: The American Professional Stratocaster is here to help you take your next step forward in electric guitar playing. A true evolution of the original design, it stays true to Strat heritage while continuing to innovate in terms of sound, playability, and looks. No matter your style, the American Pro Stratocaster will help you take your playing to new heights. The guitar's V-Mod single-coil pickups were designed by pickup expert Tim Shaw, and provide specific voicings for each position, with a healthy mix of different alnico magnets that allow for new tonal details to be discovered. Sparkly highs, buttery midrange, and smooth low-end frequencies are all on display thanks to these upgraded pickups. The American Professional is also easier to play than ever, thanks to a "Deep C" neck profile, providing your fretting hand with deeper shoulders for a more ergonomic feel. Other improvements include a Genuine Bone nut, Narrow-Tall frets, and an Elite molded case. With its array of upgrades in sound and feel, the American Professional Stratocaster is a must-have for players looking to further their musical capabilities and bring home one of Fender's most storied instruments.
