The epitome of what is considered the most recognisable guitar. The classic Stratocaster shape in the legendary Olympic white of Hendrix. Borne out of Corona, California the Performer Stratocaster is an American icon. Shaping the sound of generations of musicians the performer strat is the absolute highest quality for every man.
Alder is the soul of the strat
The Fender Ltd AM Performer body is made from Alder. Alder is a light airy would that allows the passage of sound waves like no other wood. Its Tonal characteristics are bright and snappy. The light body is one of the most comfortable to play either sat or standing. The timeless design of the Stratocaster is often imitated but only fender strats have that look and feel.
The neck and fingerboard are both made from Maple, this is a dense hardwood perfect for the supporting role of the neck and ideal for a crisp, sharp response. The neck is finished in a silky smooth satin urethane. This makes the strat modern "C" profile neck one of the easiest most comfortable to play. The 22 medium jumbo frets are the most natural to play and make for the most enjoyable playing experience.
Explore Yosemite for mountainous sound
The three single-coil pickups are designed by Fender's lead engineer Tim Shaw. They are a mixture of Alnico II and Alnico IV and as such provide the attack of the alnico IV and the breadth of tone of the alnico II. The middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity and eliminates hum. There is also a feedback reducing shellac coating. The three pickups are some of the most sought after and provide that classic Stratocaster bubbly tone in the neck pickup and the searing attack in the bridge pickup.
