High Quality Construction
In true Fender tradition, this American Performer Strat is crafted from a piece of lightweight Alder - a tonewood renowned for its resonant tone and excellent sustain.
With its distinctive dual cutaway shape, this guitar offers you a supremely comfortable playing experience, along with easy access to the guitar's upper frets.
Easy to Play Neck
Bolted onto the body is a sleek maple neck, with a comfortable Modern "C" profile shape, capped with a Maple fingerboard. Both the neck and fretboard sport a satin finish, resulting in a super-smooth playing feel
The fingerboard is also carved with a modern 9.5" radius, and features 22 jumbo frets, resulting in effortless playability and accurate string bends.
Newly Designed Pickups
For the pickups on the American Performer Series, Fender turned to their head pickup Guru Tim Shaw, who used his expertise to develop the incredible Yosemite pickups.
The trio of Yosemite single coil pickups on this guitar offer a rich and versatile array of expressive tones.
Thanks to their flat-staggered pole pieces, these pickups offer an increased output, and with the shellac coating the coils are allowed to breathe for a more natural tone.
For added versatility on this American Performer Strat, Fender have included some incredible wiringcapabilities.
For starters, the Greasebucket Tone Circuitry allows you to roll off the guitar's high-frequencies without muddying the tone with unwanted bass.
In addition to this, Tone 2 features a Push/Pull function that will activate the neck pickup in parallel with the pickup selector in positions 1 and 2.
Top Notch Hardware
To complete the package, Fender have fitted this guitar with a whole host of premium-grade hardware.
Amongst this hardware you'll find a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge and a synthetic bone nut, which work together to offer precise intonation for all strings across the entire neck and incredible string vibration transfer.
In addition to this, the headstock is fitted with six ClassicGear machine heads, with an 18:1 tuning ratio to provide secure and precise tuning.
As stated above, this gorgeous, vintage-style guitar is available in limited numbers only - once they've gone, they've gone!
In other words, we recommend that you place your order sooner rather than later should you want one, as you don't want to miss out.
