The American Professional Series will be closely modelled on the brand’s flagship guitars while introducing them into a new era. New versions of the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Precision Bass, Jazz Bass, Tele Deluxe, Jaguar and Jazzmaster will all be included in the line.
“We are committed to evolving with artists as their musical expression diversifies” said Fender’s Justin Norvell. “It’s our goal to give artists the tools they need to push the boundaries of their artistry in ways they never thought were possible. The American Professional series stays true to the integrity, quality and craftsmanship of legendary Fender designs, while incorporating more modern, player-centric features.”
The Jazzmaster will feature Fender’s new V-Mod pickups, which are single coils made with a mixture of alnico magnets, each one voiced specifically for its particular position and designed by Tim Shaw.
The range will incorporate a new ‘Deep C’ shaped neck profile, new electronics, and narrow-tall frets, which allows for more expressive playing.
In total the Professional Series will comprise of 16 models, available in 11 colours, including three new ones: Sonic Gray, Antique Olive and Mystic Seafoam.
