The Fender American Performer Telecaster MN Electric Guitar maintains that classic Tele' design whilst incorporating superb modern features that make this perfect for the next generation of guitarists. The American Performer has been given an overhaul with regard to electronics and hardware, but it is as playable and versatile as ever before. 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 instantly recognisable single-cutaway profile that we've all come to know and love. Crafted using lightweight alder, the Tele' retains a balanced feel in the hands, whilst producing a generous tonal palette to play with. Whether you're jamming with friends, laying down tracks in the studio or performing on the grandest of stages, the American Performer plays like a dream.

Modern neck 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. Married 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.

Yosemite pickups

Whether you're chopping through country licks like a champ or tapping into some alt-rock mischief, this Tele' can segue between any musical style. Thanks to the forward-thinking team behind the Yosemite pickup design, the Tele' is endowed with an Alnico 5 powered neck pickup, and Alnico 4 in the bridge pickup, offering increased clarity and impressive power. By employing a shellac coating for the neck pickup - as per pickup specs back in the day - and wax potting for the bridge pickup, the coils can "breathe" without feedback becoming an issue. The result is a highly responsive blistering attack, which is delivered across a vast tonal landscape from chunky lows to blistering highs. The Greasebucket circuitry of the master tone control allows highs to be rolled back without sacrificing gain for beefy mid to low end riffage.

Hardware upgrades

The American Performer Telecaster 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.
