Fender American Professional Stratocaster HSS in Sienna Sunburst

Ash Body

Description

The Fender Professional Strat is one of those guitars that needs no introduction. It's got the classic look and sound heard over countless records since the '50s! Features include V-Mod and Shawbucker pickups, a fantastic fret design that makes bending a breeze and a comfortable tapered neck for even better playing comfort.

The HSS model is regarded as a 'superstrat' due to its immense versatility. It's the best of both worlds thanks to a bridge humbucker and singlecoils in the neck and middle positions, giving you those sought after out-of-phase Strat sounds.

Professional

The American Professional range has replaced the American Standards. Made in America with high-end hardware and each one comes with an official Fender hardshell case.

Pickups

The Bridge humbucker was designed by Tim Shaw and is renowned as the go-to Fender humbucker, all down to its bite and power.

V-mod pickups have each been voiced for their position in the guitar rather than the same pickup put into each position as they were before. The new V-Mod pickups are a combination of Alnico so that you can optimise the volume (and tone) of each string in each position.

Each pickup is made up of a blend of Alnico magnet types for the neck and middle pickup (Such as Alnico V or Alnico II). The American Professional models also have the Treble Bleed Circuit which keeps the trebles pronounced, even when turning the volume down.

Neck Shape

The neck shape is the new Deep C profile which is a tapered neck. This means it’s thinner at the headstock end where you play chords and may want to get your thumb over the top to fret the E-String. The neck flattens out the higher up you go to make faster playing a bit easier and a bit more fluid.

Frets

The Narrow-Tall frets make bending a little bit easier as they don’t provide as much friction or resistance as vintage frets do. And because they’re slightly narrower, it gives the actually fret spacing a little more room. It’s an incremental change, but every little helps…
