The American Professional II Stratocaster from Fender provides a number of improvements over the original model. The lightweight, curved body creates a tonal foundation that is well-balanced and sonorous. The pickup selection is the first big enhancement on this solidbody electric guitar. 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 provide plenty of sustain and brightness. A contoured heel joint, "Super-Natural" silky neck finish, and updated electronics are among the other performance enhancements. The American Professional II Stratocaster is a good choice if you want a guitar with a classic sound and a contemporary feel.
