Fender American Professional 2 series

Always looking forward in the spirit of innovation, Fender has spent the last four years listening, learning and collaborating with a diverse and devoted assortment of professional musicians in a quest to continually refine and improve the American Professional experience. Now, Fender is proud to unveil the American Professional II – an evolution of its most trusted series. These incredible guitars and basses push the envelope on performance, looks and innovation while maintaining the authentic sound and style that made Fender famous.

NEW FEATURES:

A New “Deep C”-Shaped Neck With Rolled Edges

For unmatched comfort and playability, American Professional II instruments feature a host of new player-friendly features, including enhanced rolled edges on a variety of Fender’s iconic “C”-shaped neck profiles, a Super-Natural “non-stick” satin neck finish for a smooth ride up and down and a more ergonomically-shaped sculpted neck heel for easier access to the upper registers. These key features let you play longer and harder – without any pain. As for the sound? Admittedly, it would be hard to improve upon the Tim Shaw-designed V-Mod pickups introduced in the first iteration of the series. But Fender’s done just that. Great for any playing style, American Professional II instruments feature brand new V-Mod II pickups custom-voiced for pure, balanced tone and designed to maximize articulation without harshness.

V-Mod II and Shawbucker Double Tap™ Pickups

In addition to V-Mod II single-coil pickups, which strike the perfect balance of vintage warmth and crisp clarity, the Stratocaster HH, Stratocaster HSS and Telecaster Deluxe models are equipped with multi-magnet Shawbucker Double Tap™ humbucking pickups for a myriad of new configurations and a more full-throated, punchy tone. Furthermore, push-push electronics allow you to combine the neck and bridge pickups in the Strat – or change from series to parallel in Tele and Jazzmaster models – with the quick push of a tone knob.

And we can’t forget the low end. Packed with the iconic bass sound you know and love, the split-coil V-Mod II pickups on the Precision Bass and Precision Bass V models deliver the vintage warmth, punch and clarity that made Fender electric bass tones legendary. If you prefer more freedom on your fretboard, the J Bass Fretless model offers a smoother,more fluid tone – a distinctly Fender sound since the early ‘70s. Finally, the Precision Bass and Jazz Bass are fitted with HiMass™ Vintage bridges configured for both four- and five-string models.

Premium Bridges

There’s also new premium bridges across the series, including a 2-point synchronized tremolo with a cold-rolled steel block on the Strat for increased clarity and sustain. The Jazzmaster is outfitted with Mustang(r-ball) saddles and a Panorama™ tremolo – plus specially-voiced V-Mod II pickups that deliver everything from signature Jazzmaster punch and presence, to vintage warmth and clarity.

The Telecaster models feature a unique dual top-load/string-through Tele bridge with Bullet saddles, which allows players to string the guitar from the ashtray, through the body – or a combination of both for a fully customized playing experience.

Striking New Finishes

But these instruments don’t just feel and sound great — they glow with knockout Fender style. Among the striking new finishes available on American Professional II models are Miami Blue, Dark Night, 3-Color Sunburst, Mercury and Mystic Surf Green. There’s alsoa Strat with a body constructed of Western Red Cedar, which delivers extended harmonic character, a lightweight feel and a unique reddish/brown hue.

“The American Professional II series is the connective tissue that both artists and music fans are seeking now more than any other time in our nearly 75-year history,” said Evan Jones, CMO of Fender. “In addition to making the best tools possible for artists, it’s also very important for us to use the Fender platform to amplify and spotlight how their music is positively impacting the world.”

Diverse, dynamic and dependable, the American Professional II Series is truly the one – for all. Played by more artists on more stages, night after night, this versatile and wide-ranging collection sets the standard by which all electric guitars and basses are measured.
