Fender American Performer Telecaster HS RW - Aubergine
Dynamic electric sound
A pickup system to give you raw, powerful tones. A Yosemite single-coil bridge pickup can inject unparalleled sonic aggression into your music. With its classic single-coil voice, you'll be able to play with the sound that defined rock 'n' roll.
But this is classic sound reimagined for the modern day. So Fender haven't stopped at creating exhilarating single-coil sound. They've managed to develop a single-coil pickup that performs with magnificent clarity, too. Gone is the unpleasant hum associated with single-coil pickups when the volume is cranked up. You can now ramp up your output without worry of interference thanks to flat-staggered pole pieces combined with wax potting.
The DoubleTap humbucking neck pickup adds a unique sonic profile to your overall sound. It mixes classic single-coil tones with the supreme, gigantic audio clarity of a humbucker. The result is wonderfully distinctive sound in your music.
Perform scintillating solos
Be a guitar hero. Because in the American Performer Telecaster, Fender have provided you with an instrument that'll make your lead playing easier, more intuitive, and better sounding than ever. They've fitted the guitar's neck with 22 jumbo-sized frets. This increased playing area gives you more space to work with, making it easier to hit notes, and facilitating massive string bends that can give your solos a distinctive edge.
Each note will sound amazing, too. A string-thru bridge helps increase each string's natural sustain and resonance. This means every note in every solo will ring for longer and sound clearer. Ensure every member of your audience clearly hears your thrilling lead lines.
All-conquering range. You'll never be limited in your style of play by the American Performer Tele. That's because Fender have constructed this guitar with a stunning blend of premium tonewoods, giving you an amazing, extensive tonal range.
Enjoy wonderful natural depth and resonance with an alder body. This is perfect for allowing you to play driving, invigorating power chords. The body is also lightweight, reducing the strain on your shoulders when you're stood playing for long periods.
Brightness and sharpness in each note is added by the Telecaster's maple neck. And you'll have access to beautiful warmth and richness in tone courtesy of a rosewood fingerboard. It's this that will make open chord playing sound beautifully natural. This is a tonal palette that will never restrict you.
Maximum playing comfort
A guitar that you can play for hours on end. The American Performer Telecaster's maple neck has been designed to fit naturally into the palm of your hand. Thanks to this, the instrument will feel extremely comfortable when you're holding it.
The benefits of this are twofold. Firstly, you'll be able to play on and on thanks to cramp not being an issue. Ideal for those shows that both you and your audience never want to end. You'll also be able to concentrate entirely on your creativity without discomfort distracting you or holding you back.
Includes a deluxe gig bag at no extra cost
Rock 'n' roll sound and style to take anywhere and everywhere. The Fender American Performer Telecaster comes with a deluxe gig bag at no extra cost. Protecting your guitar from scratches and scrapes on the move, it'll make transporting your Tele from gig to gig simple.
Crafted with care
Fender have been crafting the very best guitars in the business for over 70 years. They've always been at the forefront of developing instruments that continually raise the bar of quality for the music industry. With the Telecaster, they made the first successful solid body electric guitar. In the Strat, they invented distinctive sound that would drive rock 'n' roll to its status as one of the most well-loved music genres in existence. Their Precision and Jazz basses brought more power to bass playing than ever.
