The Fender American Professional II Stratocaster HSS is a revolutionary electric guitar that blends vintage-inspired tone with modern performance features. Upgraded with brand new V-Mod II pickups—specially tuned to deliver articulate, balanced tone—this Strat pumps out punchy sounds across its sonic spectrum. A sleek satin-finished maple neck and narrow tall frets make for an ultra-fast playing experience, while the two-point tremolo system yields a sparkling, expressive tone with increased sustain. The contoured neck heel provides effortless access to higher frets. Overall, the American Pro II Strat HSS is a bold and innovative take on a timeless classic.

V-Mod II Pickups Provide Enhanced Clarity and Warmth

At the heart of this Strat's tone are its brand new V-Mod II pickups. Precision-tuned to deliver enhanced clarity, articulation and warmth, these pickups pump out crisp, balanced tone across all five pickup positions. The bridge humbucker packs a punchy, versatile sound suitable for crunchy rock and blues leads, while the single-coil neck and middle pickups produce the chimey, sparkling tones that Strat players crave.

Fast-Playing Neck and Narrow Tall Frets

The satin-finished maple neck on this Strat features a modern C-shaped profile that feels sleek and fast in your hands. Narrow tall frets make bending and fretting notes an effortless experience while facilitating low-action setups. Combined with the contoured neck heel, these features provide unmatched comfort and playability, especially when soloing in the higher registers.

Two-Point Tremolo for Expressive Playing

Equipped with Fender's two-point synchronized tremolo bridge, this Strat yields a shimmering, expressive tone with increased sustain. The two-point mounting system allows the bridge to move smoothly and return to pitch with unparalleled tuning stability. Its cold-rolled steel tremolo block also adds a touch of sparkle to your tone. From subtle warbles to dramatic dive bombs, the two-point tremolo unleashes a world of sonic possibilities at your fingertips.
