Fender has unveiled a new, limited-edition version of its American Professional Stratocaster, equipped with a solid rosewood neck.
The rosewood neck-equipped model also features a trio of Pure Vintage ’65 Stratocaster single coil pickups, as opposed to the V-Mods of a stock American Professional Strat. Two new finishes, Desert Sand and Fiesta Red, are also available, with the former coming with a gold pickguard.
Elsewhere, this model features the usual American Professional Strat specs, including an alder body, treble bleed circuit and a 2-Point Synchronized Tremolo with a pop-in arm. The aforementioned rosewood neck, meanwhile, features a deep C profile with narrow-tall frets, and a laser-etched Fender logo on the headstock.
The Fender Limited Edition American Professional Stratocaster with an all-rosewood neck is available now for $1,699.
