Part of the series that thrives on creating some of the most unusual takes on classic instruments, throwing out the rule book, and packing them with unusual appointments, the Fender Modern Player Telecaster is probably the most original take on the Telecaster that there has been in years.

A Tele with a Difference

Three pickups, comprised of two single-coils and a humbucker in an HSS configuration, a coil-tapping switch for the humbucker, and most unusually a pine body, which not only looks fantastic, as the grain shines beautifully through the finish, but it also offers up new tonal possibilities.

While these components mark this model out from its Tele brethren, all the other classic attributes that make a Tele are still in attendance, so it still feels and plays as it should, and the whole offering looks surprisingly classy. In fact it could probably pull off a bow tie!

A Body to Pine for

So… pine. Why pine? Well it may seem an unusual choice but the wood was actually used in some of the earliest guitars created by Fender and has a lot to give. The wood is quite attractive, with its tight grain being visible through the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Guitar’s Charcoal Transparent gloss polyester finish. It also provides a warm tone with a robust, even frequency response through lows, mids, and highs.

Fender Playing Experience

The C-shaped maple neck is comfortable to play and the maple fretboard with 22 jumbo frets and a relatively modern 9.5" radius make for a truly Fender playing experience, which is one of the reasons that Fender guitars have always been a player’s favourite.

Exceptional Tonal Variants

The pickguard, neck pickup, chrome dome tone/volume pots and neck are all in keeping with traditional Telecaster models. The added middle pickup offers Strat tone and the bridge humbucker offers powerful leads, and the addition of switchable single coil sounds from the humbucker offer even more tonal versatility.

Classic Meets Fantastic

The Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus is certainly full of little surprises that will help you to create the perfect tone for any playing situation, and it looks really amazing too. Sheer versatility, fused with simple control is what defines this unique model. All the alterations are subtle to the eye, and powerful under the bonnet (which is a sign of great design) and for the price this is simply an amazing deal.

Customer Reviews
Great guitar, but not what I was expecting
Posted on 01/08/2013 by JohnnyBgoode I ordered this guitar online as I'd recently tried a few Teles and really liked the feel of them. This guitar didn't disappoint in that respect. Comfortable to play and sounds great. My only problem with it is the colour. I chose this particular Tele as I love the colour of it. The colour and the grain of the wood look great. However on receiving the guitar I realised that it's pretty much completely black. You can barely make out the grain of the wood. It doesn't detract from how great the guitar sounds or feel but it's definitely disappointing from an aesthetic point of view.
