About This Listing

Purchased this new in early 2018. Has seen approx 5-6 hours playtime in my home studio. Body and finish absolutely mint.  The plastic is still applied to the front pickguard and back cover. Plastic film is puckering a bit as you'll see in the pictures.  Includes all of the original hang tags, whammy bar, deluxe Fender case and keys, all shown in the pictures.

A limited edition run made with ebony fretboard and two color sunburst.  7lbs/12oz. Neck is straight and adjustable. Selling because I've recently purchased a mint older model Stratocaster and don't need two of the same model. 

The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. This stunning Limited Edition model is uniquely appointed with Ebony Fingerboard for The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Stratocaster is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.
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.

Key features
• Rescued ebony fingerboard; exclusive ‘50s Burst finish

• 9.5 in.-radius fingerboard; 22 narrow tall frets

• Includes hardshell case

Rescued Ebony Fretboard
There’s a story behind this wood. Basically, the MI industry, while looking for perfectly black Ebony fretboards, has been leaving 9 out of 10 trees unused and left behind on the forest floor. This has decimated the Ebony forests because the trees left behind don’t allow for natural reforestation. Fender is supporting an initiative to have guitar manufacturers and consumers get past this need for purely black ebony and get used to, even appreciate, striped, variegated, and multi-colored Ebony. The goal is to use every tree cut down, not just one of ten.  That said, you will be hard pressed to find any striped or light coloring in this ebony board. Stunning black.
