Body Shape & Aesthetics
The American Professional Stratocaster features a classic alder body, with comfortable contours that every player will love. Alder is the perfect choice for a guitar body as it produces a resonant and balanced tone with plenty of clarity. It is also lightweight enabling the guitar to be played all night long without strain on your shoulder. Fender have used alder as their tonewood of choice for electric guitars since the 1950's as the balanced response and slight upper middle definition makes it perfect for rock and blues playing. The American Professional Strat is finished in a Gloss Polyurethane coating along with a Sonic Gray colour. Classic Fender appointments such as aged white control knobs, angled headstock and 3-ply parchment pickguard finish the look.
Deep C Neck Profile
This iconic guitar is paired with a new Deep C maple neck designed for comfort and speed. Unlike other neck profiles, the Deep C features more substantial shoulders which creates a more natural feel in the player's hand, perfect for chords and single notes. Mounted with a rosewood fingerboard, players can achieve a much mellower tone, compared to a maple.
Narrow Tall Frets
Another new edition on this model are 22 narrow tall frets which are mounted on the rosewood fingerboard. These are slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets and are effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation.
V-Mod Pickups with Treble Bleed Circuit
A trio of newly appointed V-mod single coil pickups are the main feature of this guitar, and include a blend of alnico magnets. Each pickup is voiced specifically for its position and delivers a full host of high-output tones along with vintage warmth and crisp clarity. In addition to this perfect trio, the American Professional also features a treble bleed circuit which maintains the high-end when played at low volumes. This is a particularly great feature for home practice when loud volume isn't permitted.
Pop-in Tremolo Arm
Another new addition, is the pop-in Tremolo arm which stay firmly in place regardless of hard you play. The arm tension can also be adjusted to achieve perfect pitch bending effects.
Real Bone Nut
As well as offering the perfect tone and looks, the American Professional also features a real bone nut, which maintains the guitar's authentic appearance. The main benefit of a real bone nut compared to modern materials is that bone offers excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.
Elite Moulded Case
Finally, no guitar would be complete without a hardshell case. The Elite moulded case features body-hugging contours which holds your guitar firmly in place. TSA latches are also included for enhanced security and easy access. This durable case is also stackable for easy storage and transport.
