 Product Description

Fender American Performer Stratocaster & Telecaster

Fender finally releases the much-awaited American Performer Series. Derived from classic Leo Fender designs, the newest line-up comes as a follow up to the brand’s exclusive line of Americal Special guitars and incorporates new hardware to further enhance the delivery of exceptional tones that players have come to expect from authentic Fender guitars. Powering up the American Performer Series are new Yosemite alnico single-coil pickups that deliver rich, dynamic tones and DoubleTap humbucking pickups that split the coils into two while preserving their volume. They also feature Greasebucket tone circuity to shape high notes while maintaining gain and clarity, as well as push-pull pots to unlock new tones on some models. Benefiting the Yosemite pickups are flat-staggered pole pieces that increase output and shellac coating that provides breathing space for the coils while controlling feedback. With modern C-shaped necks, 9.5”-radius fingerboards, 22 jumbo frets on each guitar, and interesting new color schemes, the American Performer Series is designed to suit different kinds of players and provide a new level of comfort and accuracy for almost any playing style.


The Corona, CA.- Crafted American Performer Telecaster Hum combines exceptional Fender humbucking tone and authentic feel with new tone technologies and player-oriented features designed to inspire while propelling your playing to new heights.

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.
