Supercharged Single-Coil Pickups for Articulate Tone
The Pro II Strat comes loaded with specially designed V-Mod II single-coil pickups, engineered for enhanced dynamics and responsiveness. The bridge humbucker injects thick, full lows and singing sustain perfect for solos and big chords. Two V-Mod II single coils in the middle and neck positions retain the bell-like chime and quack that Stratocaster guitars are revered for, while having more presence and articulation than ever. Famously versatile and expressive, these reimagined pickups expand the tonal potential of a genuine Fender Strat.
Deep C-Neck Profile With Rolled Edges for Comfort
Shredding lightning-fast leads and complex chords is a breeze thanks to the Pro II Stratocaster's deep C-shaped neck profile. It fills your palm without feeling bulky or unwieldy. The back of the neck is finished in a smooth "Super-Natural" satin that lets your hand glide effortlessly up and down the maple fingerboard. Subtle refinements like the newly sculpted neck heel provide unfettered access to the upper registers. The fingerboard edges have been carefully rolled for hours of fatigue-free practice and performance.
Increased Sustain and Sparkle With Cold-Rolled Steel
The American Professional II Stratocaster HSS features an upgraded two-point synchronized tremolo bridge designed for rock-solid tuning stability and increased sustain. It has bent steel saddles for ideal string vibration and intonation. The tremolo block is made from cold-rolled steel, which provides incredible harmonic overtones and crystalline highs. The pop-in arm allows for quick adjustments to dive bombs and flutter effects. From rapid-fire riffing to vocal-like bends, this redesigned tremolo system keeps your playing articulate and in tune.
Stunning 2-Color Sunburst Finish Celebrates a Legacy
The limited-edition 2-color sunburst finish pays tribute to the Strat's iconic design across 70 years. The gloss polyester body finish shimmers in shades of brown and antique yellow, elegantly aging over time. Whether playing at home, in the studio or onstage, the guitar makes a visual statement. This Stratocaster's special-edition finish celebrates the Fender legacy, inspiring your music.
Alder Body and Maple Neck for Quintessential Fender Tone
The super Strat tone begins with the Pro II Stratocaster's premium tonewoods. Its solid alder body imparts a snappy attack with balanced mids and lows, while the maple neck adds brightness and sustain. Combined with the flexible SSS pickup configuration, you've got a tremendously versatile guitar capable of conjuring everything from glassy cleans to raunchy distortion. The gloss urethane 2-color sunburst is a classic finish that protects the body and creates vibrant resonance. All the ingredients are here for channeling the spirit of one of the most celebrated electric guitars made by Fender.
