Made in California
A mainstay for Stratocasters, the body has been made from Alder. The double cutaway body is both distinctive and practical.
Instantly recognisable, this body shape allows for easy reach of the upper frets which is great for adventurous lead guitar and performing solos.
Attached to the body is a Maple neck with a comfortable modern “C” profile and satin finish so it’s extremely easy to play.
Atop the neck is a traditional Rosewood fretboard with a modern 9.5” radius along with 22 jumbo frets allowing for easy and accurate bends.
Extremely Versatile Electronics
Making the American Performer Stratocaster a fantastic tool for the modern guitarist is its fantastic electronics with their huge range of options.
Found in the bridge, middle and neck positions are Yosemite single-coil pickups. These fantastic pickups feature flat-staggered pole pieces for increased output.
A shellac coating is used which allows the coils to breath while also keeping feedback under control.
Yosemite single-coil pickups are highly sought after due to their rich expressive tones and amazing dynamics which make them suitable for any musical situation.
The electronics on the American Performer Stratocaster also feature Greasebucket tone circuitry so you can roll off the high frequencies without adding bass to your tone.
Furthermore, the addition of a push-pull tone control allows you to add the neck pickup in parallel with the bridge pickup in switch positions 1 and 2.
This great feature adds even more potential to this hugely versatile electric guitar.
With the 5-position blade you can choose from any of the following pickup selections:
- Position 1. Bridge Pickup (Push/Pull Switch upon 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 sound with the Master Volume and Tone 1 (Neck and Middle Pickup) and Tone 2 (Bridge Pickup) controls.
High Quality Hardware
The Fender American Performer Stratocaster is completed with a complement of Nickel and Chrome hardware.
Up on the headstock, you’ll find ClassicGear tuning machines providing precise and secure tuning of your strings with vintage aesthetics.
Down on the body is a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge offering easily adjustable intonation and dynamic trem action.
A synthetic bone nut is place, offering enhanced sustain and natural ringing tone.
Incredibly Versatile Fender Strat
The Fender American Performer Stratocaster is possibly the most versatile Fender Stratocaster we’ve seen to date.
What’s more, it comes to you in a deluxe gig bag – a great way to transport and store your new electric guitar.
