There’s a reason the Tele has been a go-to guitar since its introduction in the early 50s. Remarkable versatility, great tonal punch and timeless looks are carried on in the Fender American Performer Telecaster! All-new Yosemite pickups will please the ears of any discerning guitarist while a comfortable feel and made-in-Corona, CA craftsmanship make it a blast to play every time!
The American Performer Telecaster includes the Yosemite single-coil pickups, designed for rich, expressive tones. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and coatings that let the coil breathe while controlling feedback – a shellac coating for the neck pickup and wax potting for the bridge pickup – Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Telecaster also features Greasebucket tone circuitry to shape the highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The ‘Modern C’-shaped neck sports a 9.5 inch-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.
