What we say:

Fender’s American Performer range brings an excellent selection of the most famous Fender designs, made in the USA, to players at great prices. Each Fender American Performer guitar has been specially designed to give gigging guitarists the tones and tools they need for excellent, high quality performances.

Special design features, custom wound pickups and fresh new finishes make this range stand out as one for players of all stripes to get behind. Fender USA quality at a budget friendly price: sounds perfect to us!

The American Performer Telecaster joins the ranks of this well spec’d and well-priced range. Sharing many of the features found throughout the range, this model proves to be one of the best all-rounders currently available.

First off, the pickups are new Yosemite units, hand-wound and made specially for this range. These pickups are relatively high in output and have a nice bold sound that really suits the attitude of a Telecaster.

Fender have also included their excellent Greasebucket Tone circuit. The Greasebucket is basically a tone control that does its job properly: turning back the knob removes treble frequencies without ruining every other part of your sound like some standard tone circuits do! You’ll find yourself using the Tone knob a lot more than before when you have the Greasebucket in there!

In other areas, you can enjoy a Modern C-shaped Maple neck with 22 jumbo frets on a 9.5” radius fingerboard: exactly the kind of spec we were hoping for. This is not too modern compared with some necks: most guitarists should get on very well here!

Other details include retro looking tuners with an efficient 18:1 gear ratio and a vintage style ashtray bridge with 3 brass saddles for improved tone and sustain.

This Tele will prove itself to be excellent in all essential genres and is available here in Satin Sonic Blue.

Specification

The American Performer Telecaster includes the Yosemite™ 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 Greasebucket™ 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.

Mostly all was as expected. Pickups fairly "toppy" but easily tamed with the tone control.
