Overview

Classic Strat sound and style, aimed at performing guitarists.

Fender's American Performer guitars are designed to put the sound and feel of an authentic, U.S.-made Fender in your hands. The American Performer Stratocaster HSS also incorporates enhancements that bring new musical inspiration, like dynamic Yosemite single-coil pickups, featuring a flat-staggered pole piece design that evens out the string response; a versatile DoubleTap humbucker in the bridge position; Fender's popular Greasebucket tone circuit and a push/pull tone pot that adds a split-coil sound from the bridge humbucker.

A comfortable 22-fret modern-"C"-profile neck with a 9.5" fingerboard radius that's comfortable to play, no matter what style you work in, keeps the inspiration coming effortlessly. The American Performer Strat is an ideal combination of tradition and modernity for the contemporary guitarist.
