    The AP is a cool guitar, one because it's the rare Fender with actual jumbo frets not the "worn down" medium jumbo, and two because it's the rare modern Tele with two pin split shaft tuners.
    I'm not 100% sure they all have those tuners but I hunted down a set and they were out of stock so i waited and bought them when they were back in stock.

    I really never buy complete guitars but this is a model I could see liking the whole enchilada.

    I actually bought a used Am Per neck on ebay but the seller screwed up their pay pal acct and I had to cancel the sale.
    I hope Fender puts jumbo frets on more guitars in the future, AND manages to price more US models similarly.

    Welcome to the fold - sounds like you’ve certainly found “your” guitar. Enjoy!

    Great looking guitar. Looks like you've got the basic guitar types "covered". Congratulations

    Nice collection, and congrats on the fantastic new tele! I don't get along with Les Pauls well, but that's one of my favorite finishes on them. Play on!

    what didn’t you bond with on the performer that made you want to make your own version?

    The body colour looks great and I dig the humbucker in the neck position. I think it better balances with the bridge pick up compared to a regular tele neck pup.

    Congratulations! They are a great guitar, aren't they? Mine is very fun and the Yosemite pickups sound excellent. I like it so muck that I'm saving up for a matching Performer Strat.
