Craft your own distinctive voice. The American Performer Strat HSS comes equipped with a Fender Vintage-Style Synchronised Tremolo bridge. This allows you to experiment with the legendary tremolo effect in your music. You'll easily be able to inject a unique edge into your solos using the guitar's whammy bar.

Incredible tone. Fender have fitted this American Performer Strat with a trio of pickups that will provide you with your most distinctive, exhilarating guitar sound ever. They've loaded expertly designed Yosemite pickups in the neck and middle positions.
These modern pickups have been developed to deliver vintage Strat sound with none of the hum or noise that single-coil pickups often suffer from. You can play at the very highest outputs thanks to volume-increasing flat-staggered pole pieces. Ideal for performance in even the largest venues. Clarity is retained flawlessly thanks to feedback-eliminating shellac coating.
The instrument's tremendous individuality is ensured by a DoubleTap humbucker at the bridge position. This unique, patent-applied-for design merges humbucking and single-coil pickup characteristics to create a voice the likes of which you've never heard on a guitar before. Like the Yosemite pickups, it performs brilliantly at high output.
A guitar that you can play for hours on end. The American Performer Stratocaster's maple neck has been designed to fit naturally into the palm of your hand. Thanks to this, the instrument will feel extremely comfortable when you're holding it.
The benefits of this are twofold. Firstly, you'll be able to play on and on thanks to cramp not being an issue. Ideal for those shows that both you and your audience never want to end. You'll also be able to concentrate entirely on your creativity without discomfort distracting you or holding you back. Playing the guitar should always, above all, be enjoyable. This is an instrument that never forgets that.
All-conquering range. You'll never be limited in your style of play by the American Performer Strat. That's because Fender have constructed this guitar with a stunning blend of premium tonewoods, giving you an amazing, extensive tonal range.
Enjoy wonderful natural depth and resonance with an alder body. This is perfect for allowing you to play driving, invigorating power chords. The body is also lightweight, reducing the strain on your shoulders when you're stood playing for long periods.
Brightness and sharpness in each note is added by the Strat's maple neck. And this is further enhanced with a fantastic, crisp-sounding maple fretboard.
