New 2016 American Professional


Simply put, pickups are the heart and soul of an electric instrument’s voice. The American
Professional series features our newest pickup offering: V-Mod single-coil pickups.
Updated versions of our classic designs, modified for modern performance, V-Mod
pickups are packed with authentic Fender tone. V-Mod pickups, and the newly redesigned
ShawBucker™ humbucking pickups are voiced specifically for each position, bringing out
the nuances of your playing.
