Born in Corona, California, the elegant American Performer Jazzmaster delivers the exceptional tone and refined feel you expect from an authentic Fender—with new player-oriented features that make it even more inspiring to play.
The American Performer Jazzmaster includes the Yosemite™ single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and a shellac coating that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Stratocaster also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass, along with a push-pull tone control which adds the neck pickup in any switch position, unlocking new sonic possibilites. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for all playing styles, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending. As a final touch, the traditional Jazzmaster tailpiece and bridge have been replaced with a Strat®-style six-screw vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge.
