Fender's all-new American Performer series instruments are here, offering players authentic, stage-ready American-made Fenders at an affordable price. At the heart of the American Performer Strat's design is its set of Yosemite single-coil pickups. These pickups have flat-staggered pole pieces and shellac coating that results in a hotter sound than your usual Fender single-coils. These are excellent pickups that provide an extra layer of tonal versatility, and you'll only find them in the American Performers. This HSS version also replaces the bridge with an all-new DoubleTap humbucker, so you can get the power and chunk that you need for heavier playing styles. Plus, the excellent Greasebucket tone circuitry and push-pull tone control lets you add in the neck pickup to any switch position, adding even more tonal layers to be uncovered. The American Performer Stratocaster also features a modern "C" shaped neck, 22 jumbo frets, and a 9.5" radius fingerboard, which all contribute to the guitar's remarkable playability and rock-solid in-hand feel. Made in Corona, California, the American Performer Stratocaster is a remarkable instrument with wide-ranging tone and the unmatched playability you've come to expect from an authentic, USA-made Fender.
