Fender American Performer Stratocaster HSS, Black

American Performer replaces the American Special Series.

Born in Corona, California, the American Performer Stratocaster HSS delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender—with new enhancements, like the DoubleTap humbucking pickup, that make it even more inspiring to play.


Features

  •     Alder body
  •     Two Yosemite single-coil Stratocaster pickups; DoubleTap humbucking bridge pickup
  •     Push/Pull Pot for Coil Split on Bridge Pickup
  •     “Modern C”-shaped neck with 9.5”-radius fingerboard; 22 jumbo frets
  •     ClassicGear™ tuning machines; silver ‘70s logo



 New Yosemite Pickups

Handcrafted in Corona, California, Yosemite pickups are specifically voiced for each instrument and position to create sonically versatile and musically useful sounds.


New ClassicGear Tuning Machines


Combining vintage style with a modern 18:1 gear ratio, the ClassicGear tuning machines have smooth action and make it easier to fine-tune your instrument.


Jumbo Frets

Jumbo frets make it easier to achieve wide, expressive bends that add your personal touch to your music.


Push-Pull Potentiometer

The push-pull pot controls the unique DoubleTap humbucking pickup, unlocking single-coil tones without any volume loss, making it easy to adjust your sound mid-performance.


Satin-Finished Neck


Featuring a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style, the neck also hosts a satin finish on the back, giving it a smooth, fast playing feel.


Greasebucket Tone System

This uniquely Fender tone system lets you cut treble without losing gain or “muddying” your sound, preserving your carefully shaped tone.
