Fender has announced two new limited edition guitars, the Lightweight Ash American Professional Telecaster and the Lightweight Ash American Professional Stratocaster.

The two new models are—aside from the new lightweight ash bodies—mostly the same as their American Professional counterparts, with V-Mod pickups, treble-bleed circuits and narrow-tall frets. 

The Telecaster does, however, feature a “Modern C-to-D” neck profile, as opposed to the original's "deep C" neck profile.
