With its iconic look and unrivaled playability, the Fender American Professional Stratocaster is a guitar that sits comfortably in anyone's hands. Whether you're a young rocker, or an old blues player, the American Professional Strat has all the features you need to play your best.  With Fender Professional craftsmanship, a variety of styles to choose from, and fantastic electronics, this guitar is for anyone who wants an amazingly well-crafted, adaptable instrument.

Fender Professional Craftsmanship
Fender prides itself on crafting some of the most solid, durable guitars on the market. The American Professional Strat is a testament to that. It's got a Modern Deep "C" neck which provides awesome comfort as it gradually thickens from the nut towards the higher frets. The frets themselves are narrow-tall, giving you more space between the frets, without slowing you down. The combination gives you the ability to do some great, big bends. The American Pro also sports a 2-point synchronized tremolo with bent steel saddles and pop-in tremolo arm. The tremolo arm easily and quickly pops in and remains silent and effective.  

Variety of Styles to Choose From
One of the great things about the Stratocaster is that there are so many styles to choose from. The body of the American Professional Strat is cut from alder, but what happens after that is up to you. You can choose from a number of great finishes, each bold and attractive in its own way. The American Professional Stratocaster sports two different fingerboards, depending on the body finish. There's a maple fingerboard, with a beautiful, light natural look, and a rosewood fingerboard, with its darker hue and solid feel. Some finishes give you a choice of the two, with a few finishes having one designated fingerboard. Regardless of what works for your style, you'll always have the peace of mind in knowing that that you're getting Fender quality craftsmanship.

Fantastic Electronics
The American Professional Strat comes complete with V-Mod single-coil pickups, which use a unique combination of the three types of alnico. A specific mix is used for each string and pickup position. The bridge pickup features alnico 5, for a more responsive tone and signal boost. The American Pro also holds a treble bleed circuit, which allows you to maintain your high-end when you decrease the volume. That means your awesome, searing tone doesn’t change just because you want to take the volume down a notch.

The Fender American Professional Series Stratocaster to me is the guitarists dream machine! I bought the Black body with Mapel Neck. I've been playing for 50 years. I have always wanted, and dreamed of owning a true legendary guitar. I can highly recommend this axe to any, and all guitarists. The action, intonation, playability is by far the best. The custom hardshell case is also the best to protect, and store the dream machine. The pop in tremolo bar does however take some getting used to. But it truly doesn't get any better than this! For the money, and life long investment, I can definitely recommend this beautifully crafted guitar. Worth it's weight in gold

Another Top of The Line Strat

I'm an admitted Strat-o-holic. This is the 10th Strat in my current collection, which includes mostly AVRI models, an EJ, a EC, a couple of Standards and an American Deluxe. The quality of this Pro is typical for what I have found in all of my Strats. After a quick setup it was ready to play. The V-mod pickups are among the brightest in Fender's line, but the tone controls allow you to keep everything under control. Mine is the sienna burst, and I can't find a flaw in either the fit or finish.

Absolutely.

As my first electric guitar, many may say I am spoiling myself or I am way over my head. Either way, I looked as it as an investment. I have had it for about two weeks, and I never thought I could have so much emotional attachment to an object. It is aesthetically beautiful, precision and accuracy is second to none, but most of all the feel. I cannot see myself playing any other electric guitar for the foreseeable future. 100% recommend!

10 STARS OUT OF 5!!

THIS IS WHAT A STRATOCASTER SHOULD BE. THE NECK IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. BY FAR THE BEST FEELING I'VE EVER ENCOUNTERED ON A FENDER. THE PICKUPS HAVE THE STRAT TONE THAT'S BEEN IN MY HEAD FOR DECADES, BUT WENT UNHEARD UNTIL NOW. EVERYTHING FROM SWEET TO SPARKLING TO SNOTTY CAN BE HAD FROM THIS GUITAR. THE HARDWARE IS FANTASTIC, ESPECIALLY THE TWO-POINT BRIDGE. KILLER!

Great new series

The Strat is arguably one of the most if not the most popular guitars ever. Light weight body and bright, twangy sound is recognizable to any guitar player. This year Fender unveiled their newest incarnation of the Stratocaster called the Pro series. The biggest update you get with this guy is the brand new V-mod single coil pickups which gives you a nice little boost in tone compared to other models as well as diversity between pickups. You also get a new Deep "C" shaped neck which once played will never want t play a different one.

More refined classic Strat tone!

Just upgraded my American Standard to the new American Professional. Honestly, it feels like a boutique custom build, such is the attention to detail Fender has put in to the new series. Love the addition of treble bleed mod (which should be called a treble NO-bleed mod, I can't play a Strat without it) which comes stock, bone nut (again, stock) and redesigned pickups, somehow improved over last year's Custom Shop pickups (all STOCK!). Don't sleep on the Electric Olive color, it will age well and look good once you ding it up.

Fender has done it again

5

The Fender Stratocaster has been one of the most popular electric guitars since it's introduction in 1954. It has been widely used across many genres, idolized by many, copied by many, and seen many incarnations over the years. Enter 2017 and the all new American Professional series is here. Fender has really put a lot of thought into these instruments and incorporated some features typically reserved to a custom shop instrument. They've used a new neck shape and a different size fret wire to make the neck more comfortable than ever, redesigned the pickups which are now voiced for each position and they are spectacular, they've improved the included hard case, come stock with a bone nut which in my opinion is the best nut material available, they have increased the break angle so this improves playability sustain and more, while retaining the roots the modern 2 point tremolo features the classic bent saddles but with the convenience of a pop in arm, and they offer a finish for just about anyone. I could go on for ages but it truly is remarkable and if you're in the market for a strat this is a guitar you need to try out for yourself. They are really honing in on something great with this new series as typically I find myself installing a bone nut, swapping to boutique pickups, etc when purchasing other strats over the years. This strat pretty much gives you all that great stuff out of the box.
