From its original form, Fender's American Professional II Stratocaster provides a number of improvements. The lightweight, curved body creates a tonal foundation that is well-balanced and very resonant. The pickup selection on this solidbody electric guitar is the first big change. The V-Mod II single-coil pickups on the American Professional II Stratocaster produce a classic tone with modern enhancements. A cold-rolled steel block and an improved 2-point tremolo bridge work together to provide lots of sustain and brightness. A contoured heel joint, a "Super-Natural" silky neck finish, and updated electronics are among the other performance enhancements. The American Professional II Stratocaster is worth considering if you're seeking for a guitar with a classic voice and a contemporary feel.
