The Telecaster, like its Strat brother, has proven to be epically solid and versatile. Featuring a concrete build, fun Tele features, and modern Fender electronics, the American Performer Series is a grand version of a staple of the Fender guitar family. This guitar is for Tele lovers and players who just want a great quality guitar.

Concrete Build
Perfected over decades, the Tele is built strong to last long. It's got a hefty alder body in Telecaster shape, with a cutaway for easy fret access. The neck is a modern "C" shape cut from maple for great feel and tone, while the fretboard showcases 22 jumbo frets and dot inlays. The American Performer Telecaster has a 25.5" scale length and 9.5" fingerboard radius. Playing on this beauty is effortless and enjoyable.

Fun Tele Features
Telecasters have always been unique in their appointments. The headstock of the American Performer Telecaster is a slim, uniquely Telecaster design and boasts Fender ClassicGear tuners. The body has two control knobs covered in chrome, with a chrome base, seated next to the recognizable black capped selector switch. Perhaps most interesting about the Tele is the bridge. The American Performer Series Telecaster has a 3-saddle, string through body bridge, for strong intonation and that fun twang you can only get from a Telecaster.
Modern Fender Electronics
The look of this Telecaster may be familiar, but what's under the hood is some special stuff from Fender. The American Performer Series features the newly minted Fender Yosemite single-coil pickups. There's an Alnico 4 bridge pickup and an Alnico 5 neck pickup. Encompassing rich tone and sweet clarity, the two Yosemites and a three-way selector switch will help you find your ideal sound. It's also got volume and tone controls, the latter with a Greasebucket tone circuit so you can contour your highs without adding bass. Overall, this guitar sounds sweet.

  • Alder Telecaster Body
  • Maple Neck in Modern "C" Shape
  • 22-Fret Fingerboard with Dot Inlays
  • Two Yosemite Single Coil Pickups and Greasebucket Tone Circuit
  • 3-Saddle String-Thru-Body Tele Bridge and Fender ClassicGear Tuners
