Fender American Performer Stratocaster Guitars

The Fender Stratocaster is one of the first mass-produced electric guitars dating back to 1954. The Fender American Performer Strat is one of the most affordable 'Made in the USA' guitars available in Fender's catalogue.

Don’t be fooled by their comparatively modest prices; these instruments beautifully combine the classic Strat blueprint with a number of carefully-considered modern appointments. Their new Yosemite pickups featured flat-staggered pole pieces and a shellac coating; the result is a higher output with better feedback control. Other key features include smooth satin-finished necks and the intuitive 'Greasebucket' tone circuit, allowing you to gain better control of your instruments EQ output.

The American Performer Strat range features a number of pickup configurations and finishes. But as the name suggests, these are gig-ready instruments that tick just about every box without breaking the bank. Check out the full American Performer Strat range below!
