Fender American Performer Stratocaster contours

A look that delights

The American Performer Strat takes the familiar lines and contours of a timeless design and dresses them in spectacular finishes. This version comes in a choice between the glittering copper color of the new penny finish and a subdued satin Lake Placid blue on maple fingerboards. Whichever way you choose to go, the looks are absolutely outstanding.

Fender American Performer Stratocaster electronics and finish

Power and tone to spare

Fender designed a whole new series of pickups — called Yosemite — for the American Performer series. Meant to bring a little modern attitude while still summoning the historic Strat tones, the three single coils on the American Performer Strat with maple fingerboard deliver just enough snarl to be satisfying when they're opened wide, and provide those classic sounds when you roll back the volume. The unique Greasebucket tone circuit keeps the mud out when you roll down the tone knob. The hidden surprise lies in the push/pull tone pot that will add the neck pickup to any switch position for a widely increased tonal palette.

Fender American Performer Stratocaster headstock and tuners

Chrome and steel

A classic 6-point synchronized tremolo bridge pairs with ClassicGear tuning machines for stable tuning whether your whammy action is subtle or sweeping. For a crowning touch, the oversize '70s-style headstock with silver Fender logo helps set this guitar apart as something truly special.
