I have a good relationship with my local Fender guitar shop. I bought a Fender Performer Strat (traded in a Schecter NJ strat), fair deal, and after I left, owner mentioned I could trade up to a Professional ii Strat at $1550 (normally $1699) Miami Blue with a maple neck. Difference is only $150. I actually prefer the looks of my honey burst Performer body over the Miami Blue color. But the Pro II has a 2 point tremolo over the 6 screw , and I’ve found mine doesn’t stay in tune that well (usually not a problem for me with the 2 screw version). Hard shell case another upgrade. The neck on the Professional II is usually the big advantage but I’m not sure yet I like the gloss finish on the fingerboard - anyone not like it? I’m thinking I should upgrade, just asking for confirmation I guess.
