    I think it is. This is a USA professional made in 2015, not the American Professional made today. Different guitars.

    Ahh. I didn't realize that fender had named two different series nearly identically.

    Sounds like something they'd do though, what with the hundreds of variations.

    Got mine from Sweetwater. I believe this color combo was unique to them. I love the guitar!
    These are the only pics I have.

    I bought one brand new and loved it, a super dark Rosewood neck. Used it as a trade in on a ‘70’s Stratocaster (now gone). Wish that I kept the Professional.

    I did end up with an American Professional Telecaster (picture below).

    I have the same SW spec Ed. in Sonic blue. I came real close to buying the same color combo as you have, but changed my mind at the last second. The fact that I so rarely see sonic blue strats with roasted maple fretboards is what tipped me over I still haven’t made peace with wether or not I made the right choice, though I’d probably be saying the same thing in some other thread featuring a sonic blue strat if I had.

    3 American Professional Strats. All have solid rosewood necks. One SSS from GC in Champagne. One HSS, also GC, Rose Gold. One HH from the Mod Shop in Mystic Ice Blue. I dig 'em.
