Fender have taken the classic design and put that at the heart of the American Performer Tele,, 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 to a Modern C profile neck with a 9.5" radius fingerboard set with 22 jumbo frets, aiding playability.
New from Fender for the American Performer Tele are the Yosemite pickups, here in the classic configuration. The Yosemite pickups have been design to deliver rich and expressive tones with dynamic sounds fit for any musical situation. The bridge pickup has a bright, edgy bite to it whilst the neck pickup delivers the sought after warm, bluesy sound loved by so many players. The pickups features flat-staggered pole pieces for an increased output that is balanced perfectly thanks to the applied shellac coating on the neck pickup and a wax potted bridge pickup, which lets the coils breathe whilst also controlling feedback. The pickups are wired through the traditional 3-way pickup selector and one volume, one tone control. Fender have also added the Greasebucket tone circuitry, which allows the tone pot to reduce high frequencies without adding bass, allowing you to preserve your tone.
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.
