    Product Description

    The Fender American Performer Tele is one of the most affordable 'Made in the USA' guitars available in Fender's catalogue. However, its modest price isn't a reflection of poor quality, as this instrument beautifully displays Fender's class-leading craftsmanship in all of its glory.

    Appointed with the typical features that you'd expect on a Telecaster, the American Performer does however boast some thoughtful modern features to bring it up to scratch. Sporting a brand new Yosemite single-coil  bridge pickup and a punchy DoubleTap humbucker, this guitar also features a smooth satin-finished neck and the desirable 'Greasebucket' tone circuit.

    Construction

    Fender's long-established tonewood combinations remain intact with the American Performer Tele. Featuring an Alder body, this popular material ensures balanced lows, lively mids and a crisp top-end, serving as the perfect tonal foundation for the spanky-sounding single-coils.

    The Alder body is paired with a Maple neck, accentuating the highs even more to allow your playing to really cut through in a mix. The bolt-on construction also gives notes a definitive snap, so that you can play with plenty of articulation.

    Featuring a modern "C" profile, this neck will suit contemporary players looking for a slim feel, while offering enough thickness for vintage aficionados. Finished with satin polyurethane, this ultra-smooth neck lacquer won't hinder fast or technical playing at all, so even shredders will adore its playability! Fitted with jumbo frets too, you can gain more control and precision over the entire fingerboard.

    Electronics

    The most noteworthy aspect of the American Performer Telecaster is its set of pickups. Installed with Fender's new Yosemite single-coil in the brdige position, this pickup is designed to project rich and expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces that increase its output, this pickup also has a shellac coating that controls feedback without choking its sound.

    The DoubleTap neck humbucker, however, is a different affair. With a thick and powerful sound, this pickup also has a warm quality that lends itself well to styles such as blues and jazz. Along with the pokey-sounding bridge single-coil, this instrument offers you a wide and versatile tonal palette.

    It doesn't end there either, as the 'Greasebucket' tone circuit is yet another thoughtful addition. Letting you roll off the top-end without adding any bass frequencies, you can use your tone control in a more useful and musical manner - not turning your guitar tone to mush!

    Hardware

    While the electronics will appeal strongly to modern players, the hardware is far more traditional and familiar to Fender fans. Fitted with a classic ashtray-style bridge with 3 saddles, you can thread the strings through the body for increased warmth and sustain.

    At the other end of the instrument you'll find a set of Fender ClassicGear tuners. Offering a smooth feel for precise pitching, these tuning machines will keep the strings stable and secure.

    It's an incredibly versatile guitar, the addition of a humbucker really opens up a lot of tones to experiment with. It's very comfortable to play and really inspires you to want to practice more. Finish also looks great!
