Fender FSR Limited Edition American Professional Stratocaster in Lake Placid Blue

Written by

Sam Beattie

The Fender American Professional Strat is one of those guitars that needs no introduction. It's got the classic look and sound that’s defined countless records since the ‘50s. For this FSR edition, Fender have gone for a classic Lake Placid Blue finish.

Body & Neck

Alder has long been a go-to tonewood for Fender. It’s known for its balanced resonance with a slight scoop in the midrange, as well as its more reserved grain patterns.

A Maple neck is familiar territory for Fender, particularly the American Pro range. Not only do you get plenty of top-end sparkle, but the Maple’s bright appearance perfectly contrasts the darker blue finish. Tall narrow frets and a modern deep C neck shape provide a hearty but comfortable feel.

Electronics & Hardware

If you’re after that authentic ‘60s Strat sound, this model certainly won’t disappoint. Fender have loaded it with 3 V-mod single coils. These essentially deliver the sizzling Strat spank that you know and love, but without the associated noise. Master controls and a 5-way switch provide the usual Strat versatility that’ll simply get the job done.

With a model like this, it’s important to strike the balance between vintage class and modern functionality. Chrome hardware, including Fender Deluxe staggered tuners and a 2-point synchronised tremolo ensure that despite its pretty appearance, this a working musician’s instrument through and through.
