The all-new Fender USA Professional Series Stratocasters have arrived and may very well represent some of the finest instruments that Fender have ever put out.

Fender Sets The New 'Standard', The Pro Series 'HSS' Has Arrived.

Fender guitars are and have always been the bench mark to which all other manufacturers are judged. Not just for their incredible quality and attention to detail, but for their eye for innovation. This brand new Stratocaster raises the bar yet again with all new features and a total focus on the players experience.

The 'HSS Shawbucker model refers to the pickup configuration used with this guitar, that being a Humbucker in the bridge position and two V-Mod single-coils in the middle and neck positions.

The Fender Professional Series lives up to this tradition, offering players a chance to own what is simple the best of the best. As Fender say, “Stop Dreaming, Start Playing”.

The Fender USA Professional Stratocaster Doesn’t Improve The Stratocaster. It Completely Reinvents It.

With the new 2017 USA Pro Strats, players are treated to a host of new innovations previously unseen on past models. All-new new pickups, circuitry, hardware, neck profiles and finishes will immediately separate this guitar from its predecessors. Even the tremolo bar which is usually a screw in design, now simple pushes in and pulls out with ease. This is something Fender fans have wanted for quite a while.

V-Mod Single Coil Pickups

The brand new V-Mod single-coil pickups power this beast and have been designed for each individual pickup position from the ground up. These pickups actually mix alnico magnet types to allow for more powerful nuanced tones while still retaining the original Fender flavor. Sustain is improved, single-coil hum is eliminated and high end tones are actually clearer and more prominent. From trying these puppies out, they don't sound like a rehash, these are totally re-imagined to the point where you will 'feel' a difference due to the improvement on picking dynamics and response. We absolutely love them.

The Shawbucker

The Shawbucker pickup was designed by Fenders in house pickup expert Tim Shaw along with the new V-Mod pickups. The Shawbucker is a high output humbucker for achieving the big rock tones usually associated with a certain other set-neck guitar. This guitar then allows for a host of tones and proves to be one of the more versatile instruments in the new Fender line-up.

A Brand New Treble Bleed Circuit

It's all fine and good that Fender have created incredible pickups, but does this new Stratocaster fully take advantage of them? Well thanks to radical new 'Treble-Bleed' circuity, these pickups can sing their finest song without even a shred of tone loss. This new circuitry makes use of the very best transistors and capacitors to ensure that when you turn your guitars volume down, no brightness or attack is lost within the circuit. This is a huge innovation in its own right and will be instantly noticeable to players when they experience the versatility that comes from being able to clean up dirt tones and change the guitars entire dynamic just via subtle turns of a volume/tone control. That’s another one off the list for Fender.

A Brand New Neck Profile

For 2017, Fender are going with an all new neck profile, the 'Modern Deep C-Shape'. Now any good player will tell you that a neck profile is subject from player to player and what works well for some, may not work as well for others. Somehow Fender have taken this rule and torn it out of the book. this new profile is expertly designed to feel amazing in your hands while you play. This is actually all to do with a brand new fret design, the 'Narrow Tall' fret. This new shape makes bending strings effortless and accurate while keeping this guitar in perfect intonation.

A fusion of contemporary and classic, the American Professional Stratocasters the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.
