Fender American Professional Series Guitars

For years, Fender has been one of the top names in guitar manufacturing. Their instruments are heavily favored across nearly every contemporary musical style. And their signature shapes can be found in images all throughout the history of rock and roll. Usually, that kind of status breeds arrogance and complacency. But, Fender apparently knows better. They’ve just announced a new and revamped flagship series of instruments – the American Professional line – intended to embrace the changing music industry and the new generation of musicians.

Replacing its 30-year predecessor, the American Standard series, this new lineup offers a few notable improvements. Most notably, these guitars are offered with new pickups designed by “pickup guru” Tim Shaw. They also feature a new “Deep C” neck profile and narrow-tall frets for easier string bending. Some other improvements include new electronics, cases, and a bone nut. All in all the new line spans across 12 different models – of which some are offered in both right and left handed formats – with several different color options for each. These new American made guitars retail starting at $1,400. [Purchase]
