Fender's American Professional II Stratocaster Left-Handed is a powerful evolution of an iconic classic. This Strat is tailored for left-handed players seeking enhanced tone and playability. Its alder body rings with a balanced warmth and brightness, while a trio of V-Mod II single-coil pickups deliver vintage-style Strat chime with improved articulation and clarity. A push-push tone control adds the neck pickup to any position and a 2-point tremolo with cold-rolled steel block maximizes sustain and resonance.

V-Mod II Pickups Enhance a Familiar Voice

The American Pro II Strat left-handed's V-Mod II single-coil pickups build on the coveted vintage Strat sound that shaped rock and roll. These pickups have been re-engineered for fuller, richer tone with enhanced highs that cut through any mix. The bridge pickup barks with attitude, the middle pickup is rounded and funky and the neck pickup is warm and smooth. A push-push switch engages the neck pickup along with your selected pickup, enabling a huge range of instantly classic Strat tones at your fingertips.

2-Point Tremolo Excels at Expressive Playing

This Strat's 2-point tremolo with cold-rolled steel block offers a smooth, responsive feel for warbling chords, shimmering textures and dramatic pitch dives. The steel block increases sustain and resonance while the 2-point mounting enhances tuning stability during heavy tremolo use. From subtle inflections to radical pitch shifts, this tremolo system inspires creativity at every turn.

Fast, Comfortable Neck Built for High Performance

The American Pro II Strat left-handed's satin-finished maple neck feels slick and fast, with a deep "C" profile that fits snugly in the hand. The fingerboard has a modern 9.5" radius and narrow tall frets that facilitate lightning-quick runs, bends and vibrato. A sculpted neck heel provides unencumbered access to the higher frets. This high-performance neck, combined with the guitar's exceptional tone and tremolo, makes the American Pro II Strat left-handed a formidable tool for accomplished players.

Premium Appointments and Components

From its bone nut and synthetic bone saddles to its deluxe molded case, the American Pro II Strat left-handed exhibits attention to detail throughout. The saddles improve sustain and enhance string-to-string balance, while staggered tuners improve tuning stability for the tremolo-equipped guitar. A contoured neck heel and rolled fingerboard edges maximize playing comfort. Overall, this left-handed Stratocaster delivers professional grade materials, craftsmanship and tone.
