Up for sale, a 2020 Fender American Professional II Stratocaster in like-new condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original hangtags and hardshell case. The most current iteration of Fender's American Professional series Strat, this guitar boasts numerous upgrades on its predecessor including a Deep “C” neck profile carve with rolled fingerboard edges, a “Super-Natural” satin finish on the neck profile and a newly sculpted neck heel, V-Mod II Stratocaster single coil pickups, and an upgraded two-point vibrato with a cold-rolled steel block for increases sustain, clarity and high-end sparkle. Tonewoods comprise an alder body and one-piece maple neck for a clear, balanced natural acoustic sound, and via the five-way pickup selector switch, the V-Mod II pickups are wound to be hyper detailed with bell-like chime and warmth in every pickup position. The guitar weighs 8lbs 1oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and accurate intonation.
The maple neck has Fender's "Deep C" profile carve, and while the neck shape does have full shoulders, it's relatively slender in overall depth, measuring .830" deep at the 1st fret and .930" at the 12th. The maple fretboard has a high gloss finish with a modern 9 1/2" fretboard radius and flawless 6105 "narrow, tall" fretwire that has plenty of meat and crown. The guitar plays effortlessly up the 22 fret fingerboard with a straight neck and responsive, optimally adjusted truss rod. The nut measures a full 1 11/16" in width, and the headstock features Fender-branded Schaller-made tuners that turn very smoothly and hold pitch well.
The electronics function as intended, with the V Mod II pickups governed by a traditional Vol/Tone/Tone Strat control array and five-way switch. The chrome plating on the hardware is positively gleaming, and the vibrato has a pop-in arm with nylon washer in the collet, allowing the arm to stay inserted yet swing freely. The Olympic White gloss finish has barely a scratch on it, accented by a dark red tortoise pickguard.
The original hardshell case and hangtags are included.
