    Correct; it's an American Performer. Nice looking Tele; enjoy!

    EDIT: I should ha e mentioned yesterday that if it's a "US18" serial number it's going to be an early one as the American Performers didn't come out until December 2018 (and US18 would have changed over to US19 roughly March 2019).

    Yep - it's an early one. My avatar photo is my American Performer Mustang - it was a first batch also with a US18 serial number. Mine was so early it didn't have the little "American Performer Series" sticker on the pickguard (over the film); they hadn't printed them up.
