Fender is excited to introduce a modern, player-friendly incarnation of their original solid body guitar with the Player Telecaster. With a vibe and features that are unmistakably Fender, this Player Tele can sing or scream thanks to dual Player Series single-coil Telecaster pickups. With its flexible and gig-worthy design, this Tele is the ultimate musical companion. From novice guitarists to gigging pros, if you're looking for a versatile instrument with timeless twang and modern performance at an exceptional value, the Player Telecaster is for you.

Unmistakably Fender
An indispensible workhorse, the Fender Telecaster endures as a marvel of elegantly simple form and solidly utilitarian function. The Player Telecaster is pure Fender, continuing the recipe that changed the sound of music and became a signature instrument for guitarists worldwide. A fresh palette of colors and Fender's classic spaghetti logo grace this instrument to provide the ultimate blend of old-school and new-age vibes. With a gloss headstock face and a smooth back finish, the neck exudes playability and class. Redesigned for the ultimate comfort of modern guitarists, the body contours of the Player Tele are shaped to be more similar to those of US models.

Player Series Single-Coil Tele Pickups
The Player Series Single-Coil Telecaster pickups offer the ultimate mixture of timeless Tele twang and sizzle with a contemporary twist. With exceptional articulation and a crisp tonal response, Fender enhanced the classic Fender sound by employing bent steel saddles for the bridge, allowing your sound to really cut through and be heard with sustain for days!

Flexible and Gig-Worthy
The humble Telecaster unleashes an astonishing diversity of sounds, well-suited for any musical genre. The Modern "C"-shaped maple neck's comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. By adding a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5"-radius fingerboard, Fender has made it easier to express yourself musically. Premium hardware, rock-solid tuning stability, and tour-tested design make this a companion you'll never leave behind.

Disappointed in the finish quality control


Butterscotch blonde. I would have kept it and not returned it but there was a 3/8" finish or wood flaw on the front by the bridge. It looks like a small knot. This doesn't look good on a BB finish. Very disappointed because other than that the guitar was xlnt. I just couldn't get past the fact that this body shouldn't have passed inspection for a BB finish. The several far less expensive Squiers I've owned never had a wood flaw like this. HIGHLY disappointed.




Would definitely recommend!


This guitar is amazing. I am so glad that Fender is able to produce high-quality products at an affordable price. The tone is perfect, stays in tune, and overall plays well. Would definitely recommend this guitar to someone wanting a great guitar without breaking the bank.



Finally I have my Telecaster!


I play only for my own enjoyment, and I enjoy this guitar very much. It has the Fender feel and sound I've always wanted.



Would recommend to who ever is a good player or beginner.


THIS GUITAR IS AMAZING its a little heavy but it sounds good and its BEAUTIFUL.



Great Buy!!


Great service and exactly what I was looking for. Tremendous help from the sales department. Loving the guitar. Worth every penny!



Maybe...still trying to get used to the sound


It is a pretty instrument however, the sound isn't as sharp as my Strat and maybe it's the quality of the strings which I will replace at some point.



Great guitar


Best Mexican Telecaster I have owned.



A must have!


Got it fast, awesome setup and classic tone, one of my favorites



Great deal on a great guitar!


I've been playing guitar for about 38 years, and I have had several Telecasters (and other guitars) over the years and the Fender Player series Telecaster is a great guitar... the neck is comfortable and fast, the action is great, the pickups sound very good, the tuners and bridge are solid, it's the best deal on a new Fender Telecaster out there. And if you're looking for a specific sound you can change the pickups to exactly what you want, and/or change the pickguard out to another color, etc... and still come out cheaper than most of the higher end models.



Love this guitar


Been wanting to get another Tele for awhile, I picked up the Player series Tele Tidepool finish, Action is a little high but maybe it needs to settle in. Sounds great, This is my third Tele over the years, The folks at Sam Ash in Springfield are great, Thanks Mike, and Dave(on the phone). Get the 2 year service contract, For $60.00 you get 8 set-ups and other perks if something goes wrong.
