The Fender American Performer series pairs classic Fender designs with redesigned electronics and a range of new finishes, making it Fender's most affordable and inspiring USA made model. Made in Corona, California, this American Performer Telecaster features an Alder body and Maple neck and fingerboard design, with a 'Modern C' neck profile and 9.5" radius that can be relied upon to be comfortable across any kind of playing style.
The American Performer Telecaster features newly designed Yosemite single coil Telecaster pickups, full of all the tonal character and classic Fender twang that Telecasters are so known for. The flat pole piece design allows for increased signal output, while shellac potting helps to control feedback in a live situation. Combined with Fenders Greasebucket tone circuitry, the American Performer Telecaster continues the legacy of the solid body model that started it all, and perhaps the most versatile electric guitar around.
The American Performer Telecaster also includes a traditional three barrel string through body classic Telecaster bridge design, and includes a deluxe Fender gig bag.
