The American Performer is one of the best value for money American made guitars from Fender's catalogue. The Performer has proved itself to be an incredibly popular range for musicians on the road, in the studio and in the rehearsal room. 


Overview:

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. Adorned with a Rosewood fingerboard, this silky-smooth material adds some crucial lower mid-range warmth, while the bolt-on construction gives notes a definitive snap.

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.

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!

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.
