The Fender American Performer Telecaster RW Electric Guitar upholds classic Tele' style whilst infusing remarkable modern appointments. From the headstock to the pickups, Fender have given the American Performer series an overhaul to make it ideal for versatile players who want a gigging workhorse that won't break the bank. 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 is shaped to the same instantly recognisable single-cutaway profile. Built using alder, it retains a balanced tonal palette whilst providing a lightweight feel in the hands. Whether you're laying it down in the studio or taking to the grandest of stages, the Telecaster offers a consistent playing experience no matter how hard you rock out.

Modern neck profile

Joined to the body is a sleek maple neck, which is shaped to the modern "C" profile that allows it to sit comfortably in the hand. The generous 25.5-inch scale length lends itself well to the consistent feel across the strings, whilst promoting an articulate response for each note. The satin polyurethane finish prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement. Married to the body is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 jumbo frets that are decorated with white dot position inlays to guide your way. 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.

Posted on 22/03/2020 by I've been contemplating a Tele since I watched Joe Strummer front The Clash with one. I bought a Jazzmaster American Special a few years ago from Dawson's and it's a sublime guitar. For me a Tele needs to have 70s logo, rosewood, be made in USA and cost less that a K. The Coronavirus was a sign from the other side that now was the time to buy another Corona made guitar. This is a stellar Tele.
