Often copied, but never surpassed, the Stratocaster is arguably the world’s most-loved electric guitar. Electrifying the music world since its debut in 1954, its natural, versatile sound made the Stratocaster the benchmark for exceptional guitar tones. The American Professional Stratocaster isn’t a re-imagining of the classic design; it’s the authentic original model, evolved. This guitar, specifically, has a great feeling neck. As though it's been perfectly broken in through years of respectful play, but then topped with fresh frets and a brand new nut. The result is a guitar that feels familiar and sounds inspirational!
