1985 Fender Performer electric guitar. Great sounding and playing guitar from the 80′s. Wacky styling and killer tones made for one year make this a sought after collectible. The electronics are dead stock and work perfectly. The pickups sound great in either humbucking or single coil mode. New bar has been fashioned to fit perfectly. Plays great with very little fret wear. This is the rare Burgundy Mist Color. It comes with a gig bag. Thanks for looking!
A little more for thought:
The Fender Performer was introduced in 1985 in an attempt to compete with the edgier, angular styles that were growing in popularity among heavy metal guitarists. The one-year run was made entirely in Japan, at a time when the U.S. manufacture of Fender guitars was at an all time low. It is rumored that the design of the body and headstock was inspired by the contours of the scraps left over from the manufacture of Japanese Stratocasters, and the angular زhornsس that form the cutaways are modeled after the flat part on the back of a Strat. The Performer offered some outstanding features like custom offset humbuckers with a coil-tapping switch, sealed tuners, 24 frets and a locking tremolo system. Despite the limited success of its short run, the Performer has since been recognized by collectors as a high quality guitar, with an elevated price to match its quality.
An amazing guitar for all you eighties tribute bands.
