Overview

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:

      I had a choice between the elite and the professional. I did for for the elite solely on its versatility alone. However, I did enjoy playing the professional much more. The greatest thing about the professional is that some features on the elite were modded for the pro. Ergo,aside from the missing case candy and standard switching, this should be a prized instrument even if it only came with a gig bag.

        Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

        Really happy with the guitar, went with the black body and rosewood fretboard, and the guitar looks great. My only disappointment was that the American Pro didn't come with any Fender accessories, which are included with the American Standard and American Elite models. With the increase in price compared with the American Standard I expected to get some nice perks. It's a minor complaint, and doesn't take anything away from the guitar, but just disappointed with Fender considering the price and the name. I did send a consumer complaint to Fender but haven't heard back yet.

            Really happy with the guitar, but a bit bummed that the higher priced American Pro doesn't come with Fender accessories considering that the American Standard and American Elite models do. It's not a game changer but just a bit dissapointed with Fender.

              Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

              Super impressed and happy with this Strat. I've been playing guitar on and off for about 10 years but recently decided to really focus and get a nice professional electric guitar. I spent months researching and playing dozens of styles/brands/etc (Les Paul, SG, Tele, etc.). At the end of the day I'm glad I came back to the classic Strat. This Pro series is really what tipped the scales. The entire feel of the guitar is just fantastic. Plays like butter, looks awesome, new pickups are crisp and clear sounding.

              I'm a big fan of the smooth satin neck and the new "Pro" changes. The narrow tall frets just add that extra touch of ease of play, and the treble bleed circuit has spoiled me. I love that I can bring the volume down really low and still get clear, crisp tone. Gives you much more versatility to play quiet then crank it up for lead work. Simple change that's just great. The neck is just slightly fatter but feels just right and probably contributes to more tone. The humbucker on the HSS sounds so killer. Almost tempted to get the HH, but wanted some of the classic Strat single coil tone.

              The sunburst on mine is just awesome. I didn't think a non-custom shop Strat could look that great. The other new colors in the Pro range look awesome too.

              Coming from a humbucking guitar I do kind of wish the pickups were noiseless or that it had the carved neck joint but I know the higher end Elite version has those so can't expect it all! And the V-Mod pickups are pretty sweet as is.

              Overall, smart subtle changes that make a great classic guitar just that much greater. Makes me look forward to getting home to play
              (And isn't that the point? :)
