What we say:
At A Glance
Fender’s American Performer range brings an excellent selection of the most famous Fender designs, made in the USA and available at a great price. Each Fender American Performer guitar has been specially designed to give gigging guitarists the tones and tools they need for excellent, high quality performances. Special design features, custom wound pickups and fresh new finishes make this range stand out as one for players of all styles to get behind. Fender USA quality at a respectable price: sounds perfect to us!
Features We Love:
The pickups are new Yosemite units, hand-wound and made specially for this range. These pickups are relatively high output and have a nice bold sound. No need to worry though, they still display plenty of that immortal Strat chime.
Greasebucket Tone Circuit
Fender have also included their excellent Greasebucket Tone circuit. The Greasebucket is basically a tone control that does its job properly. Turning back the knob removes treble frequencies without ruining every other part of your sound like some standard tone circuits do. You’ll find yourself using the Tone knob a lot more than before when you have the Greasebucket in there!
Push/Pull Tone Control
There is a neat addition to this Stratocaster model in the form of a special push/pull pot on the bottom Tone knob. This brings in the neck pickup, regardless of the position of the 5 way blade. If we were being facetious, we’d call this the ‘Gilmour switch’ as he is perhaps the most notable user of this particular mod. He’s quite right to have it as it works brilliantly! You can enjoy lots of new sounds by blending the neck in with the other pickups.
