The HSS Strat is a format that is beloved by gigging players thanks to outstanding versatility, and the Fender American Performer Strat HSS provides some exciting new features which make it one of the best to date! The DoubleTap humbucking pickup features both humbucking and single-coil modes no volume loss when in single-coil mode. Made in Corona, CA, this axe is a rock solid guitar that is ready to hit the stage with players of any style.
The American Performer Stratocaster HSS includes the Yosemite 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. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and the single-coil pickups’ shellac coating and humbucking pickup’s wax potting that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite & DoubleTap pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation.
The American Performer Stratocaster HSS also features Greasebucket tone circuitry, along with a push-pull tone control to control the DoubleTap humbucking pickup. The ‘Modern C’-shaped neck sports a 9.5 inch-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.
