Fender American Performer Telecaster, Maple, Penny

Reliable, functional, and trustworthy, the widely cherished Fender Telecaster is the original workhorse guitar, and as part of Fender's American Performer range - a series of superbly crafted American models with accessible price tags - the American Performer Telecaster is an authentic looking, and extremely playable instrument with modern features.

Adhering to the classic aesthetic, the robust Alder body feels lively, resonant, and familiar, while the eye-catching Penny finish ensures that the guitar not only looks fantastic, but is also fully prepared for both the rigours of the road, and years of ownership. Working well with almost any playing style, the superbly comfortable Modern “C” shaped Maple neck is also finished in smooth but tough urethane, and is perfectly complimented by the 9.5" radius Maple fingerboard; 22 jumbo frets add to the instrument's positive and highly playable feel.

Handcrafted in the USA, the two Yosemite® Single-Coil Telecaster pickups have been specifically voiced for each position, and their lively tones are teeming with classic Tele bark and growl. Sonic versatility is ensured by Fender's excellent Greasebucket Tone System, which allows the treble to be cut without loss of gain or "muddying" the sound. Other features include new 18:1 ratio ClassicGear Tuning Machines, a synthetic bone nut, classic dot inlays, and a vintage style 3-Saddle String-Thru Tele® Bridge.

      It's great. And it's sub £1000 for a bonafide California Tele (with good contemporary additions) and the coppery "penny" colour is great.
