    Picked this up last night, a new Fender American Professional Stratocaster in Olympic White with a Rosewood fretboard.

    Congrats!
    I have one that is identical but with the maple board. I love the V-Mod pickups in mine, awesome guitar!

    Hi, I’m still on the fence with the new V-Mod pickups, I may have preferred the pickups in my last American Standard. To early to make the call.

    I was thrilled to see the dark Rosewood neck on the guitar when I first opened the case. I love the look and feel of the guitar. Once I change out the .009’s for .010’s on the guitar I’ll like it even better.

    Not a fan of a mint green pick guard, it’s staying white.

    I debated between the Maple and Rosewood fretboard. I do prefer the feel of the Maple neck but I stayed with the Rosewood, similar to my previous Strat.
