The Fender American Performer Telecaster Hum MN Electric Guitar evokes classic style paired with modern appointments, which makes it a fantastic choice for the next generation of performers. Hailing from Corona, California, the American Performer Telecaster honours the USA-built Fender legacy by combining outstanding craftsmanship with exceptional tonal diversity. Each model is supplied with a deluxe gig bag to encourage players to get out and play.
Timeless Tele' style
The Fender American Performer Telecaster adheres to the legendary single-cutaway body shape that has become a design classic. The substantial proportions establish a rock-solid playing feel, with sleek lines in all the right places to maximise comfort. Built using lightweight and tonally flexible alder, the Tele' can shift through gears and switch between musical styles with ease. Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, laying down tracks in the studio or cracking through sets in front of an adoring crowd, you can rest assured that the Telecaster is always up to the challenge.
Modern "C" profile
Connected to the body is a smooth maple neck, which is carved to the modern "C" profile that allows it to sit sweetly in the hand. The modest 25.5-inch scale length lends itself well to the consistent feel across the strings, whilst promoting an articulate response from each note. The satin polyurethane finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement. Paired to the neck is a crisp sounding maple fingerboard, which encourages a bright sounding response from each one of the 22 jumbo frets. The curve of the 9.5-inch fingerboard radius makes it a breeze to execute intricate technique such as string bends and two-hand tapping with flawless accuracy.
The Telecaster HS boasts a unique pickup arrangement that consists of a Yosemite single-coil Tele' in the bridge position and an American Performer DoubleTap humbucker in the neck position. The Yosemite single-coil produces a sparkling character for that customary 'twang' that is synonymous with the Telecaster. The Alnico 4 magnet powered bridge pickup boasts an expressive energy across a wide range for imperious tones. The DoubleTap humbucker marries humbucking and single-coil voicings with the ability to tap between the two. However, the clever design of the pickup manages to eliminate volume loss or dropout when in single-coil mode. The result is smooth transitions between each for saturated humbucker tones and scorching single-coil tones. By incorporating Greasebucket tone circuitry you can roll back highs without losing any gain to create raucous mid to low-end riffage.
The American Performer Telecaster Hum is home to masterfully crafted ClassicGear tuning machines. Each one is individually anchored with a nut of the front of the headstock and endowed with an astonishing 18:1 gear ratio to give them outstanding performance. No matter how enthusiastically you rock out you can rest assured that adjustments can be executed with the smoothest action. The 3-saddle strings-thru-body Tele' bridge allows you to play without fear, safe in the knowledge that each string is securely anchored for optimised intonation and sustain.
