Fender’s flagship range just got better, introducing the Fender American Professional II series! The American Professional II Telecaster features improved tone thanks to the V-Mod II pickups and enhanced playability thanks to refinements to the neck and hardware making an already impressive instrument even better.
With the body Fender have stuck with the tried and tested wood, alder. Why mess with something that’s worked for over 60 years? The neck, however, has seen some refinements over its predecessor. The Deep C profile remains but now with a softer edge to make it even more comfortable in the hand. The neck finish has also been improved with a new “Super-Natural” satin feel to allow your hand to glide up and down the neck with ease. The neck heel has been sculpted for improved upper fret access and there’s a new asymmetrical, bevelled neck plate to match.
The fingerboard has the same great feel thanks to the smooth rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges. The 9.5” fingerboard radius and narrow-tall frets make it a breeze to play chords and string-bends alike.
Improved V-Mod II Pickups
The American Professional series introduced the V-Mod range of pickups which were each voiced for their specific position. For the American Professional II Tele, they’ve been tweaked for improved clarity with greater twang, snap, and bite. These single-coils offer smooth cleans in the neck through to cutting, aggressive tones in the bridge and everything in between. The V-Mod II pickups have that classic Tele sound, just taken to the next level.
Versatile and Reliable Hardware
The bridge on the American Professional II Tele has been re-designed for improved tone and versatility. The bridge now gives you the option of top-loading the strings in addition to the usual stringing through the body. The top-loading bridge was a design that lasted from 1958 to 1962 and while it may have been short-lived, many see them as highly desirable. Fender give you the option to string it either way so you can decide for yourself based on your preferred tone and feel.
Another addition to the bridge are the new compensated “bullet” saddles. These brass saddles offer great intonation and greater flexibility in the setup of your guitar allowing you to adjust the tension and tone of each string to your preference.
