The Fender Modern Player Telecaster, Charcoal is probably the most original take on the Telecaster there has been in years. Three pickups (in an HSS configuration), a coil-tapping switch for the humbucker and most unusually a pine body. The pine not only looks fantastic, as the grain shines beautifully through the finish, but it also offers up new tonal possibilities. Thankfully, with all these interesting appointments, the guitar still looks, feels and plays like a classic Tele. The pickguard, neck pickup, chrome dome tone/volume pots and neck are all in keeping with traditional Telecaster models while the added middle pickup offers Strat tone and the bridge humbucker offers powerful leads (and switchable single coil sounds).
Sheer versatility, fused with simple control is what defines this unique Fender Modern Player Telecaster. 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. 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 players favourite. This Modern Player Tele 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.
