Limited availability! 2019 Limited Edition Model.
Often copied, but never surpassed, the Fender Stratocaster is arguably the world’s most-loved electric guitar. Since 1954, Fender has been electrifying the music world with the natural, versatile sound of 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.
This 2019 Limited Edition model features a different twist on the American Professional Stratocaster, with an all ash body instead of alder. This tonewood gives the guitar a stunning look with the Aged Natural finish, but also produces a better sustain and more treble than alder.
Developed by pickup master Tim Shaw, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are explicitly voiced 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 sound 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.
