They’re already here, in store now!!!
The new Fender American Professional Series updates the core models included in the old American Standard Series and adds three new models: the Tele Deluxe, Jazzmaster and Jaguar.
Here is where the new American Professional models differ from the American Standard:
New neck shape. “Deep C” shape that’s in between “Modern C” and “U” (except for Jazz Bass). All will have satin finishes.
New fret shape. Tall-Narrow instead of Medium Jumbo.
New pickups. V-Mod and redesigned Shawbuckers instead of Custom Shop offerings.
New circuitry. A treble-bleed circuit helps maintain tone at any volume.
New bridge designs. Don’t worry – nothing drastic.
New nut material. Genuine bone instead of synthetic bone.
New molded case. An “elite” molded case with TSA-friendly latches.
New colors. Sonic Gray, Mystic Seafoam, Antique Olive, Butterscotch Blonde (Tele).
Hearing these new models is what we’ve all been waiting for…
