Born in Corona, California, the American Performer Stratocaster HSS delivers the exceptional tone and feel you expect from an authentic Fender - with new enhancements, like the DoubleTap(TM) humbucking pickup, that make even more inspiring to play. The American Performer Stratocaster HSS includes the Yosemite(TM) single-coil pickups - designed for rich, expressive tones - and a DoubleTap humbucking bridge pickup. This unique, patent-applied-for design combines humbucking and single-coil voices, while eliminating volume loss in single-coil mode. The single coils feature flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and shellac potting that lets the single-coils breathe while controlling feedback. Combined, Yosemite and DoubleTap pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.

The American Performer Stratocaster HSS also features Greasebucket(TM) tone circuitry, along with a push-pull tone control to activate the DoubleTap humbucking pickup. 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.

I bought this particular model and it's an exceptional guitar. The neck feels better than any other strat I've ever touched and is likely do to the satin finish body and neck along. The edges of the fret board are rolled which feels incredible. Though to be fair you put this neck on any other fender body and it will be great. Thus the 4/5 for value. It's overpriced in my opinion but I would happily replace it with another if I had to.

Love the satin neck. The fret work is great. Very smooth fret ends and rolled edges. I love the 70s jumbo headstock. Unmistakable Fender. Pick ups sound great through my Katana 100. Crisp and lively. Tapped humbucker is nice to get the single coil bridge pick up sound. The body finish was perfect. I own the surf green. The matt finish feels nice to the touch. Overall the guitar feels solid and good in the hands. It's a pleasure play. Very versatile, able to play any genre. I think its fantastic value for money. Not the cheapest guitar on the wall but worth it. No hesitation recommending this guitar.
