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 Vintage White with a Maple fingerboard. Beautiful!
The American Performer Telecaster Hum includes the Yosemite™ single-coil pickup—designed for rich, expressive tone—and a DoubleTap humbucking neck pickup. This unique, patent-applied-for design combines humbucking and single-coil voices, while eliminating volume loss in single-coil mode. With flat-staggered pole pieces to increase output and wax pottings that let the coils breathe while controlling feedback, Yosemite pickups produce dynamic sounds ideal for any musical situation. The American Performer Telecaster Hum 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.
