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 American Performer Stratocaster includes the Yosemite(TM) single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.

The American Performer Stratocaster also features Greasebucket(TM) tone circuitry and a push-pull tone control which adds the neck pickup in any switch position, unlocking new, musically useful tones. The "Modern C"-shaped neck sports a 9.5"-radius fingerboard that's comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.

Cant beat the value: all the tones from Hendrix and Clapton to SRV and The Edge are in this guitar. It's what a strat should sound like. And the quality is a cut above the Player series which I've also owned. Trust me, it's more than worth the extra money. Above this price point you'll see diminishing returns so I firmly believe this is the best bang for the buck. The pull pot to select the neck pickup in any configuration is also a nice bonus but even without that, it's an amazing guitar. Plus, if you order a red tortoiseshell pickguard off Amazon (for like $15) you get the same look as an American Ultra. Cant go wrong! And I even managed to find a rare used one for only $1200! What a steal.... even at full price it's more than worth it. Buy one!
