Fender American Performer Stratocaster HSS, Maple, Black

The history of Fender's most famous instrument is one of evolution, expert design, skilled craftmanship, and highly talented artists. This is the guitar that has been involved in virtually every major musical shift, event, and milestone since its introduction in 1954. As part of Fender's American Performer range - a series of superbly crafted USA models with accessible price tags - the American Performer Stratocaster updates the original design, and in doing so provides an authentic looking, but modern, reliable, and extremely playable instrument.

Staying true to the classic design, the wonderfully sculptured Alder body feels tight, resonant, and comfortable, while the classic yet robust Black urethane finish ensures that the guitar not only looks fantastic, but is also prepared for both the rigours of the road, and years of ownership. The comfortable Modern “C” shaped Maple neck is also finished in smooth but tough urethane, which is perfectly complimented by the 9.5" radius Maple fingerboard; 22 jumbo frets add to the instrument's positive and highly playable feel.

Handcrafted in Corona, the three Yosemite pickups (Double Tap™ Humbucker in the bridge, and Stratocaster® Single-Coils in the mid and neck) have been specifically voiced for each position, and their classic tones will make even the most ardent vintage Strat aficionado feel at home. Sonic versatility is further enhanced by the push-pull pot control, which unlocks single-coil tones from the bridge pickup without loss in volume, and the excellent Greasebucket Tone System - a unique Fender design which allows treble cut without loss of gain or a "muddied" sound. Other features include new 18:1 ratio ClassicGear Tuning Machines, a synthetic bone nut, classic dot inlays, and a 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Synchronized Tremolo.
