Fender American Performer Stratocaster® HSS

$1,099.99

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 Double Tap™ humbucking pickup, that make it even more inspiring to play.

The American Performer Stratocaster HSS includes the Yosemite™ single-coil pickups—designed for rich, expressive tones—and a Double Tap humbucking bridge pickup. This unique, patent-applied-for design combines humbucking and single-coil voices, while eliminating volume loss in single-coil mode. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and the single-coil pickups’ shellac coating and humbucking pickup’s wax potting that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite & Double Tap pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Stratocaster HSS also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry, along with a push-pull tone control to control the Double Tap humbucking pickup. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.
