What Reidys say...
"The new Performer Series gives you American made Fender quality at a great price point. One thing I absolutely love about these are the new finish options, such as the satin surf green and satin sonic blue: they bring a modern take to the classic Fender custom colours of the 50s and 60s. As expected, the build quality of this series is stunning - they feel solid and reliable, perfect for a gigging musician, plus each American Performer comes with a padded gigbag. Add to this the silky smooth satin necks, sturdy hardware and Yosemite pickups and you have a blend of the finest ingredients for an instrument that is versatile enough for anything you can throw at it - you won't be disappointed!
In the late 50s, the Jazzmaster was the top of the tree in the Fender line. Adorned with a mega fancy switching system and a fancy trem system, it was the turkey with all the trimmings. However, ask anyone what all those switches do and your head might explode with confusion... if you're me at least! That's why the Performer Series Jazzmaster is such a welcome treat for anyone seeking the Jazzmaster tone and feel, without having to deal with all the extra flab, as it's just got an easy 3-way pickup selector. As with all the Performer Series guitars, this one has a super comfortable neck and is finished to a really high standard."
Alex Buckley, Guitar Expert
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 potting that lets the coil breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Jazzmaster also features Greasebucket™ tone circuitry that lets you shape your highs without adding bass. 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.
