The Fender 70th Anniversary American Pro II Stratocaster in Comet Burst is part of the special 70th Anniversary Stratocaster range. It features a stunning flame maple topped alder body, set of 70th Anniversary V Mod II single coil pickups and comes complete with a Deluxe Moulded Hard Case in Inca Silver with Blue interior.
As expected, the fundamentals are still here for this special 70th Anniversary model, with that classic double cutaway body, iconic headstock, versatile range of tones and of course, that legendary Fender playability.
You'll certainly stand out from the crowd with this guitar thanks its flame maple topped alder body, complete with its class Comet Burst finish. The 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard really adds to the guitars aesthetic charms.
Designed for speed and comfort, the new "Deep C" neck sits between a "Modern C" and "U" shaped profile. Sitting comfortably in the hand, and with soft-rolled fingerboard, this neck profile perfectly compliments single note and chord playing alike. A new Super Natural finish on the neck aids playability, whilst the new sculpted neck heel and asymmetrical neck plate delivers a more ergonomic playing experience.
Narrow-tall frets are the order of the day. Narrower and taller than medium-jumbo frets, they are very effective for playing chords anywhere on the neck with perfect intonation, whilst also lending themselves well for the bending of notes.
Fender have loaded the guitar with a set of 70th Anniversary V-Mod II pickups. More articulate than ever, the V-Mod II pickups are voiced specifically for their dedicated position, with that all important warmth and bell-like chime Fender is famed for. Added tonal versatility comes via the push/pull control, adding the neck pickup to the switch 1 position.
Fender have treated the American Pro Strat to a pop-in tremolo arm. Able to stay in position no matter how hard you play and adjustable for a feel that'll match your playing preference, its a really nice upgrade. The upgraded cold-rolled steel block within the 2-point trem system is another great feature, increasing sustain, high-end and clarity.
The 70th Anniversary American Pro II Strat in Comet Burst comes complete with a Deluxe Molded Case in Inca Silver finish with a Blue interior that not only looks great but is perfect for the safety and security of your prized instrument.
