American Professional Stratocaster in Black with Maple Fingerboard
From the Fender website:
"The best of yesterday and today , the American Professional Stratocaster is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. It isn't a re-imagining of the classic design; it's the authentic original model, evolved."
* New Pickups: Developed by pickup master Tim Shaw, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are engineered using a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types for the neck and middle pickups. Each pickup is voiced specifically for its position, creating high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.
* New "Deep C" Neck Profile: Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional "Deep C" neck profile sports more substantial shoulders - somewhat between a Modern "C" and "U"-shaped profile. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a natural feel that's perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.
* Narrow-Tall Frets: Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.
* Pop-In Tremolo Arm: The new pop-in tremolo arm securely stays in position, no matter how hard you play. The arm tension can also be adjusted for a perfectly dialed-in feel that matches any player's preference.
* Treble Bleed Circuit: The treble bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument's volume is set.
