Description & Specs

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.

I'm not a strat guy.

I'm a telecaster guy. Everyone has a strat, but not this strat. I'm telling you, I don't like strats but this guitar is now the one I always reach for. I used to have a 2017 EBMM St. Vincent that had an all Rosewood neck that I absolutely loved and as soon as I saw this guitar with the shell pink(scientifically proven to have a better tone) I had to buy it and I was right to do so. I still don't consider myself a strat guy, I just love this guitar so much. It's amazingly ergonomic to play and the satin feel of the Rosewood neck is just phenomenal. The darker tones from the neck combined with that strat chiminess just creates this unexpected synergy. Absolutely buy it if you're on the fence. This is now my daily driver.

phenomenal feel, phenomenal tone, phenomenal experience

Easily one of the best guitars I've ever owned. The rosewood neck is warm and smooth, the pickups are next level, and the color/finish is just a bit unusual in the best possible way. Immediately clear this isn't run-of-the-mill. And working with CME couldn't have been better.

A great addition if you're looking for something a little different

First of all, this was the first guitar I've purchased from CME and it was easily the best online purchasing experience I've ever had. I had a few questions about shipping so I called and was immediately connected to Geoff, no transfers or holds. He set me up and got my order placed in just a few minutes, thanks Geoff! As for this guitar, its great! It's still an American Pro II, has the push-push tone knob. The rosewood neck is beautiful, at least on the one I got and I like the more naturel feeling back. The description shows this comes with custom shop fat 50's pickups but I haven't notice much of a difference from the v-mods in my other strat. One thing I would point out is that the picture on CME's website is a little washed out, the guitar is a much darker shade of pink in natural light. I've added some pics here and I also noticed you can see images of the same guitar over on Anderton's website and it's a much more accurate depiction.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
