The American Performer Stratocaster delivers the exceptional tone & feel you expect from an authentic Fender, with new enhancements that make it even more inspiring to play: Yosemite single coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output & a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. Additional features include Greasebucket tone circuitry & a push-pull tone control which adds the neck pickup in any switch position, unlocking new, musically useful tones.

Why We Love Fender
It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender. Ever since Leo Fender burst onto the scene with his now-iconic Telecaster, Fender guitars have found homes in the hands of brand new guitar players and seasoned rock stars. When the headstock says Fender, you know you're getting a quality instrument.
