Fender American Performer Telecaster Guitars

The Fender Telecaster is one of the first ever mass-produced electric guitars dating back to 1951. The American Performer Tele series features some of the most affordable USA-made guitars available in Fender's catalogue.

Don’t be fooled by their comparatively modest prices; these instruments beautifully combine the timeless Tele blueprint with a number of carefully-considered modern appointments. Their new Yosemite pickups featured flat-staggered pole pieces and a shellac coating; the result is a higher output with better feedback control. Other key features include smooth satin-finished necks and the intuitive 'Greasebucket' tone circuit, allowing you to gain better control of your instruments EQ output.

The American Performer Telecaster range features a number of pickup configurations and finishes. But as the name suggests, these are gig-ready instruments that tick just about every box without breaking the bank. Check out the full American Performer Tele range below!
