The new American Performer Series from Fender offers their least expensive USA Made Strat! Loaded with Pro Grade features, the American Performer is the perfect blend of fashion and function. Finished in the new color called Penny, this copper color is supremely cool!
Born in Corona, California, the American Performer Stratocaster delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender—with new enhancements that make it even more inspiring to play. The single coils are the new Yosemite Pickups which are truly remarkable.
The new Yosemite Pickups have been blowing us away, across all the models that have them. If you haven't heard them yet, make it a point to check them out. We can write about them on and on but just a few minutes with any Performer Series guitar will have you impressed. For a rather affordable set of pickups, these may be the coolest sounding and most interesting pickup in Fender's history.
The neck profile on the new American Performer Series are fantastic! A modern C Shape neck that is the perfect size for a Strat. Not too thick, not ultra slim, this is an easily managed neck that lends itself to the rhythm and lead player's alike. Other notable neck features include 9.5" fingerboard radius, 22 jumbo frets, 1.685" Nut Width and 25.5" scale length combine for a fast playing, familiar feeling experience.
