Fender American Professional II Stratocaster – Mercury #71378 (B-Stock)



Fender American Professional II Stratocaster, Rosewood Fingerboard, Mercury

What are “B-Stock” models?

These are new instruments that may have a small cosmetic blemish, which does not affect their playability or tone. While blemishes will vary, these instruments still retain their manufacturer’s warranty. Any significant marks will be mentioned in the description. All “B-Stock” models receive a full factory setup and hand-inspection before shipping.  


The American Professional II Stratocaster® draws from more than sixty years of innovation, inspiration and evolution to meet the demands of today’s working player.

Our popular Deep “C” neck now sports smooth rolled fingerboard edges, a “Super-Natural” satin finish and a newly sculpted neck heel for a supremely comfortable feel and easy access to the upper register. New V-Mod II Stratocaster single-coil pickups are more articulate than ever while retaining bell-like chime and warmth. An upgraded 2-point tremolo with a cold-rolled steel block increases sustain, clarity and high-end sparkle.

The American Pro II Stratocaster delivers instant familiarity and sonic versatility you’ll feel and hear right away, with broad ranging improvements that add up to nothing less than a new standard for professional instruments.

Note: After close inspection, there is some finish chipping around the neck pocket. (See Pics)
