The Performer Solid Body Electric Guitar
Available in 6-string & 7-string guitar configuration
The Performer Series, Foster’s line of solid body guitars, offers a distinctive playability and tone that cannot be found on other solid body guitars. Each instrument features a lightweight basswood body design that is capped with an elegant highly figured maple top. Arm and chest chamfers are also an integral part of the guitar’s design. This offers the player an instrument that possesses a sleek and beautiful appearance while maintaining the lightweight and comfortable feel that is expected from a handcrafted guitar. Each custom neck is painstakingly carved from highly figured maple and is graduated to its final dimensions to ensure optimum fretboard access for its owner. A large variety of translucent or sunburst finishes are available to complete a truly customized work of art.
The Performer starts at $3,500

The Performer features one Kent Armstrong humbucking pickup with adjustable poles and is fitted to the guitar in the neck position. Other electronic options are available to suit the needs of any playing style. So, please don’t hesitate to ask. The Performer also features a 5-ply body binding with fancy side purflings.
The Performer is a versatile guitar that can be used in a variety of playing situations, but don’t take our word for it. Just ask finger style players like Howard Morgan and Fred Fried about their Foster solid body guitars. You can hear burning jazz players like Steve Masakowaki using Foster guitars. Pop star and singer-songwriter Paul Simon has also chosen to play a Foster Performer. Whatever your musical tastes happen to be, there is a Foster guitar that can be made for you.
