General Discussion / Fender American Professional II

Fender American Professional II

The Fender American Pro II series blends both modern and classic features. It's one of their highest calibre offerings. V-Mod II pickups, new colours, and a "Super Natural" neck finish are the latest in Fender innovation. These updates have been combined with the iconic C- shaped neck and Fender US craftsmanship to create this series of 6-string and bass guitars.

Hi Mick.
Haven't had one since the 60s. My Mother was an outstanding artist on just about anything with strings, like piano, guitar, banjo, etc and she gave me many lessons on guitar as did other family members, some of who worked professionally. But, try as I might it just never came to me, thus the comment about 'meager talents'.

I sometimes consider picking up a cheap acoustic guitar and giving it another try, but so far have not acted on the thought.

Ken seriously, you should go for it.  I believe every house should have a guitar sitting in it somewhere.  ;)
