The Corona, CA.-crafted American Performer Telecaster combines exceptional Fender tone and authentic feel with modern materials and player-oriented features designed to inspire while propelling your playing to new heights.
The American Performer Telecaster includes the YosemiteTM 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 GreasebucketTM tone circuitry to shape the highs without adding bass, preserving your sound. The “Modern C”-shaped neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard that’s comfortable for almost any playing style, along with 22 jumbo frets for effortless and accurate bending.
