2019 Fender Performer Stratocaster in Honey Burst.
The Latest version of what was originally the Highway One.
Fantastic spec, a real eye catcher and superb player. Great condition, one small ding on the under side as pictured. Here’s the spec:
Fender’s long-established tonewood combinations remain intact with the American Performer Strat. Featuring an Alder body, this popular material ensures balanced lows, lively mids and a crisp top-end, serving as the perfect tonal foundation for the bright-sounding single-coils.
The Alder body is paired with a Maple neck, accentuating the highs even more to allow your playing to really cut through in a mix. Adorned with a Rosewood fingerboard, this silky-smooth material adds some crucial lower mid-range warmth, while the bolt-on construction gives notes a definitive snap.
Featuring a modern “C” profile, this neck will suit contemporary players looking for a slim feel, while offering enough thickness for vintage aficionados. Finished with satin polyurethane, this ultra-smooth neck lacquer won’t hinder fast or technical playing at all, so even shredders will adore its playability! Fitted with jumbo frets too, you can gain more control and precision over the entire fingerboard.
The most noteworthy aspect of the American Performer Stratocaster is its set of pickups. Installed with a trio Fender’s new Yosemite single-coils, these pickups are designed to project rich and expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces that increase their output, these pickups also have a shellac coating that controls feedback without choking their sound.
Making this instrument suitable for a number of styles, these pickups unlock even more versatility from what is already considered as the most adaptable guitar design ever. It doesn’t end there either, as the American Performer Strat also features a push/pull tone control that lets you add the neck pickup in any switch position, for even more tonal possibilities.
The ‘Greasebucket’ tone circuit is yet another thoughtful addition. Letting you roll off the top-end without adding any bass frequencies, you can use your tone controls in a more useful and musical manner – not turning your guitar tone to mush!
While the electronics will appeal strongly to modern players, the hardware is far more traditional and familiar to Fender fans. Fitted with a 6-screw vintage-style synchronised tremolo, this bridge will allow you to add gentle warbles to chords or even achieve EVH-style divebombs.
At the other end of the instrument you’ll find a set of Fender ClassicGear tuners. Offering a smooth feel for precise pitching, these tuning machines will keep the strings stable and secure.

Although every guitar is checked at the point of buy in for condition we try to describe as accurately as possible and with the nature of every vintage, modern, used guitar you will always find blemishes held in certain lights that we have not solely pointed out.
These are usually very small lacquer marks or polish swirls and you have to expect a margin of very light marks that go undetected in usual lit environments.
