A traditional wood for Stratocasters known for its resonant tone, pronounced upper midrange ad excellent sustain, Alder has been used for the American Performer Strat’s body.
The distinctive, signature shape of the Fender Stratocaster with its double cutaway gives the guitar its iconic appearance while allowing for easy reach of the higher frets.
Attached to the body is a Maple Neck with a modern “C” shaped profile for a comfortable and easy playing grip. Its also super smooth and easy to play because of its satin finish.
Atop the neck is a traditional Maple fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius and 22 jumbo frets, ideal for effortless playing and accurate bending.
This Fender American Performer Stratocaster is one of the most versatile Strats ever made because of its incredible electronics.
Equipped with a trio of Yosemite single-coil Stratocaster pickups, this guitar gives you rich and expressive tones.
The flat-staggered pole pieces of Yosemite pickups increase output while a shellac coating allows the coils to breath while keeping feedback under control.
Greasebucket tone circuitry is also used, so you can roll off high frequencies without adding unwanted bass to your tone, keeping your tone crisp and clear.
The Fender American Performer Stratocaster is equipped with a 5-position blade allowing you to choose between five different pickup selections while a push/pull switch adds even more options:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup (Push/Pull Switch up on Tone 2 adds Neck Pickup in Parallel)
- Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup (Push/Pull Switch up on Tone 2 adds Neck Pickup in Parallel)
- Position 3. Middle Pickup
- Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup
- Position 5. Neck Pickup
You can further shape your sonic output with the Stratocaster’s Master Volume knob and two tone controls.
