AMERICAN PERFORMER TELECASTER®

With tone that ranges from its quintessential twang to a raucous roar, the deceptively versatile Telecaster has been a classic for over 65 years. The American Performer Telecaster continues this tradition by combining authentic feel with modern materials and the incredible tone of the all-new, specially-designed Yosemite™ pickups.

  • Two Yosemite™ single-coil pickups
  • ClassicGear™ tuning machines
  • Jumbo frets

TELECASTER YOSEMITE PICKUP

Designed to work harmoniously with the American Performer Telecaster's Twisted Tele neck pickup, the all-new Yosemite bridge pickup is the first specially-created alnico pickup offered at this price point. Calibrated for its position, this pickup features flat-staggered pole pieces for added presence, bass and output, lending even more presence to the traditional twang and roar of the Tele®.


AMERICAN PERFORMER TELECASTER HUM

With tone that ranges from its quintessential twang to a raucous roar, the deceptively versatile Telecaster has been a classic for over 65 years. Now, outfitted with a DoubleTap humbucking pickup in the neck, the American Performer Telecaster Hum adds exceptional Fender humbucking tone to its already iconic sonic palette.

  • DoubleTap humbucking bridge pickup; Yosemite single-coil neck pickup
  • Greasebucket tone circuit
  • Jumbo frets

ELECASTER HUM DOUBLETAP HUMBUCKING PICKUP

Perfectly balanced for use with the Yosemite™ single-coil pickup in the bridge position of the Telecaster Hum, this unique, patent-applied-for neck pickup design provides both full-throated humbucking and expressive single-coil voices, while eliminating the volume losses common in other single-coil modes. The pickup is operated by a push-pull pot and features flat-staggered pole pieces that increase the presence, bass and output while letting the twang and the roar of the Tele® shine.


ALL-NEW YOSEMITE™ PICKUPS

Our all-new Yosemite pickups work hard to deliver the sound you need for the performance you want. Custom-voiced for each instrument in the series, these unique alnico pickups offer tones as dynamic and expressive as the musician playing them.
