A real sound machine. BAMF!!
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 and humbucking 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.
I play a lot of strats. This one is superior to most. These new pickups sound full and crisp without being harsh. The pickups are very balanced from one position to the next. The tremolo works great. l really like the new colors offered as well. If you haven't played one of the new strats, you should. this is a sam ash review.
love the tim shaw pickups in these bad boys they are very well thought out articulate pickups that have been made specifically for these new guitars, and they are wonderful, all the fender chime that we know and love without the "icepick in the ear" high end. especially as a vox ac15 owner. I could not be happier with this guitars performance
These new American Strats are super upgraded, new pickups, new style frets, new neck shape, new case. What is not to love. The same old strat, upgraded!

Great feel and tone out of this killer start. Tim Shaw designed the pickups specifically for each position mixing alnico types to give a powerful sound. Great for all types of music

The new Professional series is awesome! I love the improvements Fender has made for their new line. The neck is super comfortable and easy to play especially with the new narrow tall frets. It makes for excellent intonation and great playability. The Shaw designed pickups have tons of tone and each pickup position has a clear and defined sound that makes for a very versatile guitar. I've played multiple models of this guitar, and Fender definitely gives each one the Professional treatment. These guitars are great for any seasoned pro or hobbyist looking for a high quality guitar.
So, for 2017, Fender replaced its American Standard Series with this, America Professional series. I suppose they realized there's nothing Standard about this great axe. Top quality tone woods, fast neck, tone for days, and the colors this year are really unique. The humbucker sounds great as well. If you're going to have only 1 guitar, this might be the best choice.

Wow! This guitar sounds so good. The Shawbuckers sound really nice with the lead tones when doing solos and even country stuff. I love using this guitar for smooth jazz style music but I can still rock out. The ABS TSA case is just the icing on the cake, super light and protective! I love all the fender stuff but they out did themselves
When Fender comes out with a new series they add features that players actually want while retaining the classic Fender experience, and the same goes for the new Professional series. Tim Shaw redesigned pickups sound better than ever, while narrow tall frets help intonate chords all the way up fret board. And now, the popular treble-bleed mod now comes stock!
