This Fender Limited Edition American Professional Stratocaster w/Rosewood Neck in Fiesta Red is too sweet! Thanks to a solid rosewood neck, this guitar rings like a bell! Chords sound huge and bloom to a somehow even fuller sound. Rosewood Necks are a thing of beauty, not only in terms of look and feel but put one on a bolt-on guitar and you have a rhythm guitar to die for!
If you don't know a lot about Rosewood, start here. Now that you know just how cool this tonewood is, we can fully appreciate the modern specs with a 9.5" fretboard radius, 21 narrow-tall frets, Fender's Modern Deep C Neck Profile, 1.685" Nut Width, and 25.5" scale length combine for a familiar feel. Thanks to Rosewood's ability to exist in the real world without a thick finish, this neck feels dry, fast, raw, very much like many Music Man guitars and basses.
