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 Hum 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. The addition of a neck position humbucker opens up this versatility further.

First off, the pickups are new Yosemite units, hand-wound and made specially for this range. The bridge unit is sharp and expressive whilst the neck unit offers a wider, thicker sound that still cuts through when it has to: there’s a push/pull control for tapping the humbucker without losing volume. We like! You can cover a lot of Blues, Indie and Rock bases with this guitar.

Fender have included their excellent Greasebucket Tone circuit here on this Tele. 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 Seafoam Green with a Rosewood fingerboard. Beautiful!

Overall Rating 4.7 (3 reviews)

Really love the satin surf green colour. The rosewood neck looks a great, dark shade. I love the modern c profile neck, I have a strat with the same profile and this really feels equally effortless to play. There is a wide range of tones available from the twangy bridge pick up to more mellow ones on the neck. The grease bucket tone circuit really works too. Only thing I would say is that I didn?t find the push pull coil tap on the neck humbucker added all that much. There is surprisingly little difference between the pickup in single coil and humbucker mode.

My first fender and I love it. Very good quality and the colour is really nice, the photos don?t do it justice.
