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 equipped the American Pro Strat with ’69 Custom Shop pickups, a 2-point trem and of course, a Roasted Maple neck.

Body & Neck

Ash was the tonewood of choice for the earliest Fender designs, back in the '50s - the first mass produced electric guitars. Ash is known for its balanced resonance with a slight scoop in the midrange, as well as its more reserved grain patterns. A Surf Green finish gives this Strat a distinctively old-school vibe.

A Maple neck is familiar territory for Fender, particularly the American Pro range. But in this case, it’s Roasted Maple. Not only do you get plenty of top-end sparkle, but the Roasted Maple’s golden hue is a sight to behold. Jumbo frets and a modern deep C neck shape provide a hearty but comfortable feel. Finally, the Rosewood fretboard adds warmth and extra smooth playability. 

Electronics & Hardware

If you’re after that authentic ‘60s Strat sound, this model certainly won’t disappoint. Fender have loaded it with 3 Custom Shop ’69 singlecoils. 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 locking tuners and a 2-point synchronised tremolo ensure that despite its pretty appearance, this a working musician’s instrument through and through.
