If you're looking for a truly original take on a classic guitar, then the Fender FSR American Professional Stratocaster Butterscotch Blonde could be just what you're looking for.
The Evolution Of A Revolution
The legendary Fender Stratocaster is one of the world's most iconic, and best-loved electric guitars.
These awesome instruments made their debut in 1954, and quickly became the benchmark to which all other guitars aspired - a tradition which continues to this day.

American Professional Series
Fender's American Professional lineup instruments are designed to offer modern evolutions of authentic, original Fender guitars and basses.
In this case we have the classic Stratocaster, equipped with newly-designed V-Mod pickups, a modern Deep "C" neck profile, and the kind of aesthetics usually associated with original era Nocaster/Telecaster guitars.
Top Notch Construction
For starters we have that instantly-familiar dual cutaway Strat body, carved from Ash and sporting a Butterscotch Blonde finish.
Attached to the body you'll find a sleek Maple neck, capped with a Maple fingerboard, and sporting a modern Deep "C" profile shape.
This new neck shape is designed to combine both comfort and speed, offering a natural feel that's ideal for both chords and solo's alike.
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.
What's a Treble Bleed Circuit?
In addition to this, the Volume control now features an all-new Treble Bleed circuit to help preserve your tone.
This circuit will allow you to roll back the guitar's output without compromising its tonal quality, allowing those gorgeous Strat tones to shine through even at the lowest volumes.
As stated above, this gorgeous guitar is available in limited numbers only, so if you'd like to buy one we recommend you act sooner rather than later!
