In stock

Brand New. Not available for curbside pickup. Online orders only.

With the American Performer Series, Fender brings players a line of affordable U.S.-made instruments loaded with stunning finishes, refined electronics and hardware and a few hidden surprises. These guitars and basses are designed for musicians of any level who seek Made in USA quality and playability at a surprisingly accessible price. The American Performer Telecaster HS with rosewood fingerboard takes the quintessential "workhorse" guitar to a whole new level.

Combining classic Tele lines with a selection of stunning finishes, the American Performer Telecaster HS steps right out under the spotlight. In this version with a choice of understated satin surf green or luscious aubergine on rosewood fretboards, it's a real standout. The '70s-era silver logo on the headstock adds a distinct touch of additional style. The neck features a comfortable 9.5" fingerboard radius and 22 jumbo frets for easy playing and accurate fretting.

The American Performer Tele HS features Fender's ClassicGear tuning machines and a traditional 3-barrel brass-saddle "ashtray" bridge for classic Tele twang and snap that goes hand-in-hand with its great looks. Teles have always been known for their tuning stability, and these new tuners move that to an even higher level.

Freshly designed Yosemite pickups, crafted specially for the American Performer series, in combination with Fender's "Greasebucket" tone circuit, add a new bite to the tone. With a powerful neck DoubleTap humbucker that features patent-pending coil-tap technology on a push/pull pot, and a hot-rodded Tele bridge pickup, it's voiced to deliver the iconic Tele tones with the volume rolled back, then can get seriously nasty, in a good way, when you open it up. The unique Greasebucket circuit enables you to roll off treble without getting muddy, for a mellow tone that will still cut through without getting lost.
