The V-Mod II pickups on this guitar are voiced specifically for each position, ensuring a perfectly balanced tone with the vintage warmth and clear sound that Fender is known for.
The newly sculpted neck heel and beveled neck-plate improve access to the upper register, making it easier to play leads and solos.
The 2-point tremolo bridge with vintage-style saddles provides superior tuning stability, tremolo action, and ease of adjustment. The upgraded cold-rolled steel block enhances sustain, clarity, and high-end sparkle.
The Deep "C" neck profile with rolled fingerboard edges offers comfort and speed, with a slim nut width that gradually fills out as it approaches the neck joint. The hand-rolled fingerboard edges and Super-Natural satin finish provide a supremely comfortable feel.
Special electronics include a push-push switch on the second tone control, which activates the neck pickup in switch positions one and two. This adds two unique pickup configurations that are not typically found on a Stratocaster.
The American Pro II Stratocaster is available in either alder or roasted pine. Alder is a classic Fender tonewood with a balanced sound suitable for any genre. Roasted pine is a lightweight wood known for its punchy and complex tone, enhanced with Fender's roasting treatment for improved resonance.
