RAISE YOUR VOICE WITH THE AMERICAN PROFESSIONAL SERIES

Professional is an attitude. Creativity is a way of life. These instruments are built for players who are looking to push the boundaries of creativity and personal expression forwards.

The Sound

Simply put, pickups are the heart and soul of an electric instrument’s voice. V-Mod pickups—crafted with a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types—and the newly redesigned ShawBucker humbucking pickups are voiced specifically for each position.

The Sensation

Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional guitars’ “Deep C” neck profile sports more substantial shoulders for a more natural. American Professional Precision Bass guitars use the ‘63 P Bass® neck profile while the Jazz Bass features the fast-playing, smooth feel of our slim “Modern C”-shaped profile.

The Style

Two new colors have been added to the mix, with Candy Apple Red and Natural accompanying the Sonic Gray, Mystic Seafoam and Antique Olive that were added earlier in 2016.
