A Vision of Strat Perfection!
The Fender Stratocaster is an iconic guitar, and no one can argue with that. It also holds true that any full-blown Strat lover has a wish list of tweaks, modifications, and subtle adjustments to turn an already-incredible Strat into a vision of pure Strat perfection. Recently, the guitar-loving crew at Sweetwater got together with the Fender Custom Shop with our own wish list of sorts. With input from you, our customers, and all of the toneheads here, we went ahead and put a few different twists on the Stratocaster we all know and love to create a few of our very own versions. The Stratocaster Pro Special is an example of just that. We know you'll love it as much as we do.
So, what makes the Stratocaster Pro Special such a special version of the Strat? Well, let's walk through our subtle revisions so you can get the whole picture. First of all, we gave it the '60s-style headstock and logo. It's a simple thing, really, but we think it adds a lot of vibe. Also in the land of aesthetics, we gave our Stratocaster Pro Special a Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish, adored by vintage guitar aficionados.
What else? In the name of tone, this Stratocaster Pro Special sports N3 noiseless pickups, so you get that signature Strat voice without the hum. Other touches include separate Neck and Bridge tone controls. And we also upped the neck to a gorgeous "AA" flame maple that you'll appreciate wrapping your Strat-loving hand around.Fender Stratocaster Pro Special Features at a Glance:
