I have been looking for an American Performer Strat in this color for a while but could never find one in the store so resorted to buying one online from Sam Ash. First, the process was quick and easy. I contacted an online rep via chat to get the discount that was being advertised, selected my product and charged it to the Sam Ash card to get 36 months financing which was running at the time. Great process. Guitar arrived quickly, well packaged, and just needed tuning up and a slight tweak of the truss rod. The action is at a nice height for me making it easy to play. The quality of the fit and finish is fantastic and the sound is pure Stratocaster which I love. I would highly recommend the Performer series as a way to get a quality guitar for a bit less than some other models. Just wish Fender would offer it in a few more traditional colors but of those available I think the honey is the best.
