Introducing the new, limited edition FSR USA Pro Stratocaster by Fender; a superbly hand-built electric guitar which fuses together all the best aspects of both a Fender American Special and an American Standard. Modified with HSS pickup setup, the FSR USA Pro conveys that conventional, unmissable Stratocaster tone. It retains the well-known solidbody and adds vintage appointments to provide an all-round great sound, feel and appearance.
The FSR USA Pro Strat has a solid alder body, a staple tonewood in the construction of Stratocasters over the years. This limited edition guitar also maintains the quintessential body shape of a Strat with the double cutaways. Alder has a lightweight feel that makes it ultimately comfortable to play whether you're sitting in the studio or playing live on stage. Its resonant, bright tones are well-balanced across the frequencies which offers an expansive range of sound.
Fender have fitted a maple neck to the FSR USA Pro Strat which is shaped to a modern "C" profile with a 9.5 inch radius and a gloss finish. The slick feel of the neck is further enhanced by the double cutaways in the body; this allows for easy access to the upper frets which are higher up the neck. The pairing of maple in the neck helps the guitar to produce a bright, clear tone allied with the alder body.
Aboard the neck are 22 jumbo frets on a sumptuous, dark rosewood playing surface. White dot inlays decorate the frets to guide you from one to the next with confidence.
The Fender FSR USA Pro Strat HSS is fitted with custom-wound pickups, with two vintage-style single coil pickups and a Zebra humbucker. Single coils are often found on a Strat and are well-revered for their bright, sparkling tones and increased overall sound output, just as you would expect from a classic Strat. However, Fender have also included a Zebra humbucker in the bridge position which adds a vintage, rumbling energy to the tone, making this Strat stand out from the crowd. By employing the HSS pickup setup Fender have ensured this limited edition axe is audibly versatile.
Simple controls for Master Volume and Tone are also improved by the S-1 switch on the Volume pot, allowing you to engage that authentic Strat tone. A 5-way toggle switch lets you shift between the pickups or combine them to suit your playing style.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
