Fender American Performer Series
The 2019 American Performer Series puts U.S-made Fender quality into the hands of players at any level. For the guitarist who wants a combination of timeless Fender style and contemporary features, this guitar blends traditional Fender design with some newer elements for modern tone and performance, including their new Yosemite™ pickups, special circuitry, modern neck profiles, fingerboard radii and more. Great tone, classic style, ultimate playability - handcrafted in Corona, California.
American Performer series takes what was great about the American Special and builds upon it, evolving the instruments to set the bar higher than ever before. They’ve added six new models to the lineup, including Jazzmaster, Mustang, a Tele Hum and Bass models. They have six new amazing colors - Arctic White, Aubergine, Honeyburst, Penny and two satin finishes. Their new Yosemite™ Pickups are designed and voiced to deliver sonic versatility and new useful tonalities for all styles. Their new innovative and patent-pending Double Tap™ humbucking pickup delivers full-throated humbucking and expressive single coil tonalities without the volume losses typical in split coil pickups. Their new ClassicGear™ tuners give players the best of both worlds - with vintage styling and a modern 18:1 gear ratio for smooth action and better fine tuning.
