Fender American Performer HSS Strat - Satin Surf Green / Maple
The Performer Strat HSS is an American made Fender that features a versatile humbucker and two single coil pickup configuration.
The Fender American Performer HSS Stratocaster adds tonal versatility and power to the classic guitar courtesy of the humbucker and two single coil pickup configuration. The Performer Strat HSS supersedes the American Special HSS model, adding a welcome selection of improvements and upgrades.
The Performer HSS Strat has its roots based on Fender's classic design, as seen and heard on stages and albums the world over, with its classic double cutaway body married to a maple neck (satin finished), topped with a maple fingerboard. Fender have treated the Performer HSS Strat to a Modern C profile neck with a 9.5" radius fingerboard set with 22 jumbo frets, which will appeal to the contemporary player.
New from Fender, and for the American Performer Strat, are the Yosemite pickups single coil pickups and the DoubleTap Humbucker, here in a HSS configuration. The Yosemite single coil pickups have been design to deliver rich and expressive tones with dynamic sounds fit for any musical situation. With their flat-staggered pole pieces, the pickups deliver an increased output that is balanced perfectly thanks to the applied shellac coating, which lets the coils breathe whilst also controlling feedback. The DoubleTap Humbucker is a unique, patent-applied-for design that combines humbucking and single-coil voices (accessed via a push/pull tone pot), while eliminating the common volume loss when in single-coil mode.
The pickups are wired through the traditional 5-way pickup selector and one volume, two tone control setup, with the handy addition of the Greasebucket tone circuitry, which allows the tone pot to reduce high frequencies without adding bass.
Other appointments include a 6-Saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo, Classic Gear tuning machines and a 3-ply pickguard. To complete the package is a deluxe padded gig bag.
The Fender American Performer HSS Strat is a great option for any guitarist in the market for an American made Fender that has classic looks, great feel and added tonal power thanks to the modern pickup arrangement.
