NAMM 2017: Fender to debut American Professional series

Ty Dolla $ign, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan and indie rockers Local Natives are already using the new range.

Fender will launch a brand new collection of electric guitars and basses at NAMM 2017 on January 19th.

The new series combines Fender’s classic style and sound with a thoroughly modern feel. With new pickups, a new neck profile, new colours and two new models – the Jazzmaster and Jaguar – the American Professional is one of Fender’s broadest electric series to date.

“We are committed to evolving with artists as their musical expression diversifies,” said Justin Norvell, vice president, Electric Guitars and Basses.

“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.”

To demonstrate this new line’s versatility, Fender American Professional guitars and basses are already being used by top artists across multiple musical genres, including singer and producer Ty Dolla $ign, Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, rapper and producer Mac Miller, multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Dhani Harrison and American indie rock band Local Natives.

– Stratocaster
