NGD American Pro II JM

Post: # 1423777Post Thomas »

Well I finally bought my first modern premium Fender. Up until now I’ve always stuck to Japanese or vintage Fenders with the occasional cheaper Mexican guitar bought for modding purposes.

This is without a doubt the best set up guitar I’ve ever owned out of the box. Literally nothing needed adjusted.

Switching has the upper toggle putting the pickups in series and they have their own volume and tone rollers. The lower circuit is standard apart from one thing, the bridge pickup is very powerful, like a P90 but the coil is also tapped at vintage output level so you can tap the tone push/push pot to access that sound.

Bridge is the Fender version of the Staytrem. Trem is the new Panorama unit. Tension on the trem collet is adjustable and doesn’t swing about or fall out. It seems to have more travel than my other older versions and returns to pitch way better.

The nut, fretwork and rolled edges on the fretboard are top notch. The only guitar I’ve played in the shop that’s as good was a master built £4.5k guitar.

Very nice indeed. I really like the Dark Night finish. My Dad has an Am Pro II Strat in Dark Night and it looks even better in the flesh than in pictures.

The colour is indeed very difficult to photograph. It’s great in the flesh. Batman version of Antigua lol

Love that!

One of my bandmates bought the Miami Blue AMPROII Strat and I liked the sound so much I bought a loaded pickguard for my CIJ Strat. Always liked this burst too.

It even looks really well put together in the pictures.

You'd really like it. You can properly use Hurb it and it returns to pitch.
