The Fender American Performer Stratocaster HSS RW Electric Guitar is an outstanding addition to the Fender family. Born in Corona, California, it boasts the same sweet fit and finish that we've come to expect from an American built Strat' whilst featuring some inspired appointments to make it perfect for the next generation of performers. Each model is supplied with a deluxe gig bag to get you out and performing in no time at all.

Sweet Strat style

The American Performer Stratocaster body adheres to the same ergonomically designed double-cutaway shape that has become an icon. The slender depth and superbly executed curves create a figure-hugging feel as you perform, allowing you to get on with doing what you do best. The sophisticated aubergine paintwork is protected by a coating of gloss to preserve its vibrancy for as long as possible. Built using lightweight alder, you can boss the stage with ease, whilst the tonal versatility extends the Strat's range to cover any and every musical style.

Sleek neck shape

Connected to the body is a supple and supportive maple neck, which is carved to the effortlessly playable modern "C" profile. The satin polyurethane finish allows your hand to shift smoothly from nut to neck joint. The 25.5-inch scale length emphasises an articulate response from every note along with a consistent feel across the strings. Married to the neck is a glorious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 jumbo frets with dot position inlays to guide your way. The curve of the 9.5-inch fingerboard radius enables your fingers to roam with total freedom, allowing you to lay down deft technique with ease.

Yosemite single-coils and DoubleTap

The American Performer series benefits from some freshly designed Yosemite pickups, which break new ground for the guitar giant. The Yosemite single-coils are equipped with Alnico 4 rod magnets, which offer increased power compared to Alnico 2 without the hot and focused output of Alnico 5's. With an application of shellac rather than wax, feedback is controlled without restraining the coils ability to "breathe".

As the HSS name would suggest, in the bridge position there's another unique appointment on offer, the Yosemite DoubleTap humbucker. Designed by legendary pickup designer Tim Shaw (you may recall his awesome ShawBuckers). The raw humbucker power is delivered with full force to create a beefy, no-holds barred character. When you tap the humbucker, a single-coil tones spill effortlessly with a controlled character thanks to light wax potting to prevent feedback from overpowering your tone.

The addition of a Greasebucket tone control allows you to dial back the high-end brightness without losing any gain for beefy mid to low-end power.

Hardware upgrades

The late-'60s/'70s-style headstock is home to some masterfully crafted ClassicGear tuning machines. Each one is individually anchored with a nut of the front of the headstock and endowed with an astonishing 18:1 gear ratio to give them outstanding performance. No matter how enthusiastically you rock out you can rest assured that adjustments can be executed with the smoothest action. The 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo responds to the subtle nuances of your vibrato technique, enabling you to produce delicate flourishes with minimal effort.
