15% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

A modern expression of the solidbody electric guitar that started it all, Fender's American Performer Stratocaster delivers the latest in US-made quality and value. The American Performer Stratocaster boasts a massive tonal range. A trio of Fender Yosemite single-coil pickups — with flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output — serve up classic Strat spank and sparkle, infused with gobs of sustain for soloing. A push-pull tone knob lets you add the neck pickup to any position, opening up a huge, extended tonal range. The second tone pot engages Fender's Greasebucket master tone circuit, which rolls off highs without reducing gain. Not to be overshadowed by its innovative electronics, the American Performer Stratocaster, naturally, features the outstanding comfort and playability you expect from a Fender Strat.

Play a modern classic

The American Performer Stratocaster gives you the best of old and new, with premium features throughout. From its classic contoured alder body and fast, comfortable maple neck to its cutting-edge electronics and premium appointments, the Fender American Performer Stratocaster is today's affordable, American-made expression of Leo Fender's legendary electric guitar. Fender's latest vintage-style 6-screw Synchronized Tremolo bridge/tailpiece is ideal for adding expressive vibrato to your chords and solos, while their vintage/modern ClassicGear tuners and synthetic bone nut provide superior tuning stability.

Truckloads of legendary tone

The Fender American Performer Stratocaster is loaded with a trio of Yosemite single-coil pickups that have flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output. From chimey, glassy cleans to chunky grind, these pups serve up truckloads of classic and modern tone. This potent sonic elixir is stirred through a 5-way blade pickup selector. You can add the neck pickup to any position for a truly massive tonal range by pulling up on the push-pull neck/middle tone knob. The bridge tone pot engages Fender's Greasebucket master tone circuit, which rolls off highs without reducing gain — an incredibly useful feature that many guitarists at Music Experience swear by.

Timeless Strat design

Fender introduced the Stratocaster in 1954, but it was Jimi Hendrix who, 13 years later, put the sleek, contoured solidbody on the map as the 6-string object of desire for generations of guitarists to come. Dressed up in new eye-catching finishes and pickguards, Fender's American Performer Stratocasters make a compelling entrée into this American classic — which is still going strong after more than a half century. The Fender American Performer Stratocaster: there's never been a better time to get into a genuine, American-made Fender Strat.

What Fender Says...

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.

New Yosemite Pickups

Handcrafted in Corona, California, Yosemite single-coil pickups are specifically voiced for each instrument and position to create sonically versatile and musically useful sounds.

New ClassicGear Tuning Machines

Combining vintage style with a modern 18:1 gear ratio, the ClassicGear tuning machines have smooth action and make it easier to fine-tune your instrument.

Jumbo Frets

Jumbo frets make it easier to achieve wide, expressive bends that add your personal touch to your music.

Push-Pull Potentiometer

The push-pull pot activates the neck pickup, letting you access neck/bridge and “all on” combinations with a simple finger flick.

Satin-Finished Neck

Featuring a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style, the neck also hosts a satin finish on the back, giving it a smooth, fast playing feel.

Greasebucket Tone System

This uniquely Fender tone system lets you cut treble without losing gain or “muddying” your sound, preserving your carefully shaped tone.
