Same Old Brand New You
Alder is a time-honoured wood for Stratocasters, renowned for its great resonance, enhanced upper midrange and excellent sustain and so is used again here.
The iconic double cutaway body design allows for easy reach of the upper frets for effortless lead guitar and solos.
Attached to the Satin finished Maple neck with a modern C shaped profile for easy playability.
Adding to that easy playability is a super smooth Maple fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius and 22 jumbo frets for easy and accurate bends.
Giving the Fender American Performer Stratocaster HSS its incredible versatile voicings is its HSS pickup configuration.
A DoubleTap humbucking bridge pickup gives you the awesome sounds of both a humbucker and a single-coil pickup while eliminating volume loss when switched to single-coil mode.
The neck and middle pickups are Yosemite single-coil Stratocaster pickups featuring flat-staggered pole pieces for increased output while shellac potting allows the coils to breath while keeping feedback in check.
This powerful combination of pickups gives you rich and dynamic tone that’s suitable for any playing style or genre.
The 5-position blade allows you to choose from any of the following pickup selections:
- Position 1. Bridge Humbucking Pickup
- Position 2. Middle Pickup and Bridge Humbucking Pickup
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Neck and Middle Pickup
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
Further tone shaping comes in the form of a Master Volume knob and two tone knobs with a push-pull option allowing you to activate the DoubleTap humbucking pickup for even more tonal versatility.
What’s more; by using a Greasebucket tone circuit, the Fender American Performer Strat allows you to roll off the high end without adding unwanted bass, retaining your crispy clarity.
High Quality Hardware
ClassicGear tuning machines on the headstock provide precise and secure tuning of your strings along with a vintage look.
Down on the body is a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge, continuing that old-school style and providing precise intonation while giving you that awesome trem action.
Nickel and Chrome finished, this hardware adds that extra visual touch too, beautifully contrasting with the colour of the guitar which has a matching 3-ply black pickguard for an all over, stealthy and super-stylish aesthetic.
