Kenny Wayne Shepherd Gives a Rundown on the Fender American Professional Stratocaster:

Developed by pickup master Tim Shaw, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory.

All I can say is I absolutely love this guitar. It just feels so well made. The neck profile is extremely comfortable. It took me a while to get used to the frets, I’m using 9’s and it’s easy to press to hard but just takes getting used to maybe 10’s would be easier. The pickups in this thing are awesome. Unbelievable how clear they are. It can cover a ton of styles, it’s not a metal machine and doesn’t do great with high gain (I’ve got a Mesa TC-50) but everything up to that is so easy to get. The volume and tone controls are very responsive and you definitely need to use them. I can set my amp and cover a bunch of ground from the guitar. If you’re thinking of a new Strat grab one you won’t be disappointed.
