Fender brings its American Professional series to new heights with the American Professional II Roasted Pine Stratocaster. This solidbody electric guitar takes everything players know and love about the Strat—from its contoured body to signature sound—and improves upon it. The American Professional II Roasted Pine Stratocaster is crafted for discerning musicians who want a guitar that looks, sounds and feels like nothing else.

V-Mod II Pickups Provide Dynamic Tone with Articulation

At the heart of this innovative Strat are a trio of V-Mod II single-coil pickups. Developed by Fender's pickup guru Tim Shaw, the V-Mod II pickups deliver the chime and sparkle that defined the Stratocaster, with enhanced clarity and definition. From gritty overdrive to shimmering cleans, these pickups pump out articulate tone that cuts through any mix.

Upgraded Bridge Boosts Sustain and Brightness

An upgraded 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge with a cold-rolled steel block provides incredibly stable tuning and tuning stability. The steel block also helps boost sustain and adds a touch of brightness to the overall tone. Bend and dive bomb to your heart's content—this bridge was built to handle it.

Roasted Pine Body and Satin Neck for Unmatched Comfort

At the core of this innovative Strat is a lightweight roasted pine body that resonates freely. A satin-finished maple neck with a modern deep C-profile feels fast and comfortable. Narrow Tall frets make bends and vibrato a breeze. A sculpted neck heel provides easy access to the upper frets. Taken together, these features create an electric guitar that feels like an natural extension of the player's hands.

Push-Push Tone Knob Adds Neck Pickup to Any Position

A push-push tone knob adds the neck pickup to any switch position for a wider range of Strat tones. Get glassy neck/bridge combination in the bridge or middle switch positions or add warmth to the neck pickup. With the push of a knob, a world of sonic possibilities opens up.
