The choice of musical legends since its release, the Stratocaster feel and sound set the world on fire, powering music movements from electric blues to EDM, and everything in-between. In your hands this Limited Edition Strat is ready to navigate the creative twists and turns of your music, inspiring you to express yourself in new ways through your playing.

Developed by pickup master Tim Shaw, the V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory.

The modern "Deep C"-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. A roasted maple neck provides additional stability, enhanced figure and increased sustain.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Stratocaster is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.

I mostly own Fender Strats for years. This is a typical Strat with incredible pickups. The pickups are extraordinarily smooth. The baked neck is gorgeous and it’s more substantial than your average Strat. Even though it’s a lot thicker, it’s still very comfortable and very playable. The back of the neck feels unfinished, so it’s nice for quick playing. I’ve always wanted a daphne blue Strat and I’m glad I bought this model. I’m pretty sure Fender only made 130 of these guitars in total. If you’re on the fence about this guitar, I recommend getting it before they’re gone. These will be next to impossible to find.

Amazing guitar. By far my all time favourite in my collection. The pickups are sooo versatile that I honestly haven't touched any of my other guitars since I've purchased this. No regrets at all!!! Would totally recommend this bad boy.

I traded in my troublemaker telecaster for this guitar. No regrets. Everything about this guitar is on point. It is inspiring to play and that is everything to me.
