Used Fender American Professional II HSS Mercury W/Case and Upgraded Gotoh Bridge
Kinda suprised this got traded in considering they are really hard to get from Fender at the moment. I'm so glad I got to see this Mercury finish in person as it looks a lot better than on a website. All I can see is the plastic has been removed from the pickguard and there are some faint scratches on it. Other than that, it's practically brand new.
The original owner installed a Gotoh 510T-SF1 bridge, a common replacement if you aren't huge on the original. The original does come with the guitar should you want to put it back on.
Weighs in at 7 lbs 13.5 oz.
From Fender :
The American Professional II Stratocaster® HSS 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, while the Double Tap™ bridge pickup delivers punchy humbucking tones as well as calibrated single-coil sounds at the push of a button. An upgraded 2-point tremolo with a cold-rolled steel block increases sustain, clarity and high-end sparkle.
The American Pro II Stratocaster HSS 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.
