A rare bird among Telecaster guitars -- a triple-pickup model -- further distinguished by a pine body and mini-toggle coil-split switch for the Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup.

Throughout its history, Fender has always made a special point of welcoming new players to the family by offering entry-level instruments of remarkable style and substance (such as the Duo-Sonic, Mustang and Musicmaster models), with great sound, classic looks, solid performance and eminent affordability. The Modern Player series continues that great my-first-Fender tradition, with thoroughly modern features and several distinctively unconventional new takes on Fender's most revered instruments-all with outstandingly attainable value.

The Modern Player Telecaster Plus HSS is that rare bird among Telecaster guitars -- a triple-pickup model -- further distinguished by a pine body and mini-toggle coil-split switch for the Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup. Other features include "C"-shaped maple neck, maple fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 22 jumbo frets, Modern Player single-coil Telecaster neck pickup and Modern Player Stratocaster middle pickup, five-way pickup switching, three-ply pickguard, knurled "chrome-dome" control knobs, vintage-style Stratocaster strings-through-body six-saddle hard-tail bridge, vintage-style tuners and nickel/chrome hardware. Case not included.

Go Buy One Now!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This Guitar is AMAZING! That is All there is to it! If it were twice the price....AMAZING Guitar My only quibble....I order the charcoal color,,,and from a foot away it looks will only see the grain Close up and under the light....Nonetheless....Lots of sounds...Neck plays like butter..Pickups Sound great...and it is a Looker!!!




Love it


What can I say? It's an excellent and versatile guitar! I use it mostly for recording. It's my first electric guitar after years of playing acoustic, and I fell in love with it the minute I plugged it in. Needed a little adjustment from the box, but otherwise fantastic. My only gripe is that the photos of Charcoal Black is more like a tinted brown (which is actually what I wanted), but the actual color is basically Black. Still cool, but not what I expected from the photos.




Great China made Telecaster I Love It.


At first I didn't want to buy made in China or Mexico but I was dead wrong. Made from China or Mexico is as Great Quality that is made in America U.S. and great lower price too compare to American made which cost you an Arm and a Leg. This is my first Fender Telecaster and my second one was made in Mexico and Pawn Shop 72 which made in Japan. My next one I'll add to my collection will be a Stratocaster and I don't need to spend a thousand dollars for it. HooAaaahh..
