Often duplicated, but never replicated, the Stratocaster is arguably one of the most recognizable electric guitars in the world. Since its debut in 1954, its versatile sound has been choice for some of music's top musicians and can be found across a large spectrum of genres; country, rock, pop, folk, soul, rhythm and blues, blues, jazz, punk, heavy metal, just to name a few. The sleek, contoured body shape and double cutaways make it easier for players to access higher positions on the neck for more creativity and a wider range of electric expression.
Combining the best of yesterday with today's artistic boom, the evolved Fender American Pro Stratocaster comes with brand new, Tim Shaw signature V-Mod single-coil pickups which are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce the powerful classic Fender tone. The new modern "Deep C" shaped neck profile plus the new treble-bleed tone circuit ensures comfortable, sharp, and perfectly intonated playability.
