Fender American Performer Tele Hum - Aubergine / Rosewood
The Fender American Performer Tele Hum is an American made guitar loaded with a single coil / humbucker pickup configuration and some player-oriented features.
The clue is in the name with this American made Fender Telecaster....the American Performer Tele Hum - a humbucker loaded Tele that is paired with a traditional single at the bridge and some player friendly appointments for a unique take on the iconic instrument.
Fender have taken the classic design and put that at the heart of the American Performer Tele Hum, with its classic single cutaway body married to a maple neck (satin finished), topped with a rosewood fingerboard. Contemporary players will be pleased to hear that Fender have treated the Performer Tele Hum to a Modern C profile neck with a 9.5" radius fingerboard set with 22 jumbo frets, aiding playability.
The American Performer Telecaster Hum comes loaded with a Yosemite single coil pickup at the bridge and a DoubleTap Humbucker in the neck position, making for a tonally versatile and modern twist on the classic Tele tone. The Yosemite single coil pickup has been design to deliver rich and expressive tones with dynamic sounds fit for any musical situation. With its flat-staggered pole pieces, the pickups deliver an increased output that is balanced perfectly thanks to the applied shellac coating, which lets the coils breathe whilst also controlling feedback. The DoubleTap Humbucker is a unique, patent-applied-for design that combines humbucking and single-coil voices (accessed via a push/pull tone pot), while eliminating the common volume loss when in single-coil mode.
Other appointments include a 3-Saddle strings-thru-body Tele bridge, Classic Gear tuning machines and a 1-ply pickguard. To complete the package is a deluxe padded gig bag.
The Fender American Performer Tele Hum is a great option for any guitarist in the market for an American made Telecaster that has classic looks, versatile tonal options and modern playability, all in one affordable package.
