A Strat with the Best of Yesterday and Today

The Fender American Professional Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar has been crafted to give you the best design elements from classic vintage Strats and the most popular modern features in one gig-ready instrument. Tim Shaw designed the three V-mod single-coil pickups for a vintage voice that is balanced across all the switch positions. Fender's popular neck carve has been enhanced to a Deep-C profile that fits your hand comfortably. The Fender American Professional Stratocaster has all the elements that make Fender guitars legendary, and much more.

The Guitar that Changed the World

There may not be a model of solidbody electric guitar that is more ingrained in modern culture than the Fender Stratocaster. Its finely sculpted body, groundbreaking tremolo design, and clear-as-a-bell trio of single-coil pickups come together in an instrument that is embraced by players in every genre of music around the world. This American Professional Stratocaster is the direct descendent of all those iconic guitars. And it boasts all the same features, playability, and versatility that defines the instrument.

Balanced, vintage-voiced electronics

A great set of vintage Strat single-coil pickups should be crystal-clear sounding, enhance your playing nuance, and be able to get gritty and aggressive when needed. Pickup guru Tim Shaw designed this set of V-mod single-coils to do just that. But unlike vintage pickups, the V-mod single-coils are crafted with different alnico magnets in each pickup. This means you'll enjoy consistent output across all the pickup positions. And the onboard treble bleed circuit ensures your tone stays clear and present when lowering the guitar's volume.

Custom Shop-influenced neck

The Deep-C neck profile that you'll find on the Fender American Professional Stratocaster solidbody electric guitar is a slight upgrade from the Fender American neck players have been in love with for years. By adding a touch more roundness to the back contour, the Deep-C carve fits your hand perfectly while never inhibiting your technique. And you fingers will immediately notice how much control they have on the fretboard's narrow-tall frets. For good reason, this fret wire is the most requested size at the Fender Custom Shop.

Fender American 2-point tremolo

A Fender Strat wouldn't be a Fender Strat without the non-locking tremolo design that turned the world on its ear in the early 1950s. The American Professional Stratocaster boasts an updated take on that design that meets the needs of today's players. Its 2-point construction makes action adjustments a breeze, while providing plenty of stability. And the pop-in arm mechanism is extremely convenient, holds the tremolo arm from having too much play, and allows you to adjust the tension on the arm.

Fender American Professional Stratocaster Features:

  • A Stratocaster design that blends the best of modern and vintage construction
  • Balanced-sounding ash body
  • Maple neck with comfortable deep "C" profile
  • 3 Shaw-designed V-mod single-coil pickups are balanced across the positions
  • Narrow-tall frets are the most requested size in the Fender Custom Shop
  • 2-point tremolo with pop-in arm
  • Comfortable 9.5" fretboard radius

A great Strat!

This incarnation of Fenders classic Stratocaster is possibly the best version yet. It has a silky smooth and fast neck coupled with terrifically balanced pickups. It's treble bleed circuit keeps the high end strong when played at lower volume. The finish is outstanding and rounds out this great sounding and playing guitar. Fender has upped its game considerably with this version of the Strat. As always the buying experience from Sweetwater is terrific and the knowledgeable and friendly staff are always there to help you find just the real right instrument.

American Professional

I love everything about it. The neck profile and finish are awesome. And the color is beautiful. I can get all tones I want out of the pickups.

Buy it. You won't be disappointed.

I had never bought a Fender guitar before this one, I own several mid range guitars that all have hum buckers, but all of my favorite riffs are by stratocaster players. So I decided to get this one with sienna burst and a maple fret board. I absolutely love this guitar. The wood grain is very pretty. The picks ups are quiet and the switch is smooth. There isn't any pop/click or anything like that when switching pick ups. The out put of the pick ups is very well balanced each position delivers a different tone, thinner to thicker. All of them are clear as a bell. It is perfect. I am very pleased with the purchase. The quality of the guitar is impeccable. Sweetwater did an excellent job setting it up. The action is perfect. It is very easy to play. Sweetwater has gained a new life time customer. Thanks again Andrew Plassman.

Amazing Instrument!

Thanks to Mike Godlove at Sweetwater and all those that assisted in getting this amazing guitar to me! I have been a Strat player since 1973 and this is one of the greats. Extremely solid construction, the new neck design and frets, and the vintage voiced pickups really deliver. The Sweetwater folks did an excellent job in setting up the action, intonation, and tuning before shipping and that alone is greatly appreciated! The most amazing thing about this guitar is that I have enjoyed playing it unplugged for hours! The resonance of the ash body is beautiful sounding and the guitar plays like a dream! The pickups along with the treble bleed which retains the chimey tone with reduction in guitar volume really works and does not affect the overall great tone of the pickups. This is an amazing instrument and worth every penny. Thanks again to the entire Sweetwater team!
Music background: 52 years as a guitarist, pro sound guy, studio engineer.

Sweetwater Advice

Fender American Professional Stratocaster

The Professional's snappy unplugged sound promises high-end excitement and, man, does it deliver when plugged in! In every pickup position, tones ring and chime, with snappy-crisp attack and pleasing sustain. But that's not to say the Professional is excessively bright. Thanks to the guitar's basic tonal balance and sense of top-end headroom, you can dig in hard for aggressively bright tones that still sound even and listenable....
