FENDER AMERICAN PERFORMER STRATOCASTER HSS
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.
The American Performer Stratocaster HSS includes the Yosemite single-coil pickups – designed for rich, expressive tones – and a DoubleTap 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 & DoubleTap 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 DoubleTap 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.
