An incredible new take on the tone that made Fender a legend, 70th Anniversary V-Mod II Single-Coil Strat® pickups deliver powerful and articulate tones with vintage warmth and crisp, brilliant highs.

Short Post Locking Tuners

A high-performance feature, locking tuning machines offer increased tuning stability while making string changes fast and easy. Shorter posts ensure optimum break angle for optimal tone and tuning stability.

Delivering both comfort and speed, the American Professional II Deep “C” neck profile is slim at the nut and fills out gradually as it approaches the neck joint to create a natural feel that’s perfect for chording and single note playing alike. The hand-rolled fingerboard edges and Super-Natural satin finish provide a supremely comfortable fee.

Special Electronics

A performance friendly push-push switch on the second tone control activates the neck pickup in switch positions one and two, adding two unique pickup configurations not normally found on a Strat.
