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:

Pickups

The HSS pickups are a combination between the new Yosemite units and a DoubleTap humbucker. The Yosemites are hand-wound and made specially for this range, providing a relatively high output and a nice bold sound. The DoubleTap has a thick and full sound which is ideal for rock however it can also be split into a single coil. The really impressive feature is that there is no volume loss between the humbucking and single coil mode.

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!

ClassicGear Tuners

With an 18:1 gear ratio, these keep with the overall high performance of the guitar. They keep the strings firmly locked in place and not only get them into tune easily but also keep them in tune. An integral part of any performance, good quality tuners are a must for any serious musician.

Pros:

  • Classic looks but packed with modern features
  • Incredibly versatile range of tones
  • A solid choice for the performing musician

Stephen H. - 4/11/2020

Great sound and looks stunning - Staff set it up nicely for me

beatrice d. - 28/10/2020

Looks stunning, sounds amazing. The neck is made from a beautiful piece of white maple that looks epic when paired with the black body, the wood grain on the maple is eye catching. It was the strat that stood out the most to me. Flawless build, quality components, Yosemite pickups sound amazeballs, humbucker has a nice brightness to it but thickens up well when you roll of the tone nob for a les paul sound, sounds like a single coil when split. Holds tune forever. I can get any sound I want with this guitar. My favourite guitar I've owned and I've owned a lot.
