My first American made 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.
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!
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!
I LOVE THIS NEW FENDER GUITAR. A NEWLY DESIGNED NECK THAT IS SUPER COMFORTABLE WITH GREAT PLAYABILITY. THE SHAWBUCKER PICKUPS REALLY SCREAM. JUST AN AWESOME FENDER TONE THROUGH AND THROUGH. A GREAT ADDITION TO THE FENDER LINE. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. WORTH EVERY PENNY.
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.
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.
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.
The Strat has been around since the 50's and is pretty much the most used guitar out there among many different genres of music. The new Professional strat is born in the USA! The V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced specifically for each position to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. It has a Deep C shaped neck, a treble bleed circuit and retains clarity when adjusting the pots.
