The first and most iconic musical instrument of the 20th century was born in 1951 in Fullerton California. After years of crafting and shaping, Leo Fenders team had created a kind of perfection even they couldn't comprehend. Rock and Roll was still to come, shaped almost exclusively by the lightweight, rugged and most importantly glorious-sounding new electric guitar. With parts borrowed from semi-acoustics and even Hawaiian Steel guitars and inspiration from European Istrian guitars, the Telecaster redefined what was possible for a touring musician and songwriters alike.
The sheer elegance of the Player Telecaster in Silver is clear to see. The timeless pairing of the maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard adds a rich dimension to this classic instrument. The sleek lines of the Modern "C" profile neck with the 9.5" radius so your notes bend without choking. The Maple neck and Pau Ferro fingerboard is so smooth and strong and perfectly compliments the Silver finished Alder body.
The most distinctive characteristic of the Player Tele is the striking Silver finish and double humbucker combo. . The 6 saddle bridge is beautifully offset by the Alnico 2 humbucking pickups. The tuners are standard Cast/Sealed machine heads, these are some of Fenders most reliable and accurate machine heads maintaining Fenders excellent reputation for rugged machines. The Player Tele looks outstanding, sounds amazing and will stay in tune through the most trying conditions
The Gordian Knot
In many ways, Leo Fender solved a problem that people didn't know existed. Create a more portable rugged successor to the electro-acoustic. The Tele was born of this desire and from it stems most of the music we have and still love. The list of players is remarkable and the Teles place in history is assured. The Fender Player Telecaster in Silver is an absolute steal at the price, there are not many as well designed as this particular model in any range of guitars. The raw Tele tone is as timeless as the sea and would be a notable addition to any guitar collection, if not the notable addition.
