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.

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.

Very nice solid guitar.


Thought about buying the squier telecaster but purchased this one Instead. Glad that I did. Very nice sounding and playing guitar.



Unbelievable deal on a great sounding guitar.


I purchased the Tidepool Fender Player Telecaster for my daughter from Sam Ash Memorial day weekend. I was able to work with a couple Sam Ash sales reps who were able to get me a really great deal on the guitar. The price was unbeatable and with 36 months 0% financing on the Sam Ash card buying it was a no brainer. When the guitar arrived my daughter unboxed it and the instrument was absolutely beautiful and flawless. She tuned it up and the set up was perfect. I would definitely recommend the Fender Player Series for anyone wanting a quality instrument without spending a fortune, they sound great.



Great bang for your buck!


This is my first venture into the land of Telecasters. I was a Gibson guy for years (SG's and Les Paul's) and more recently I had been getting into Stratocasters. I saw an article on how Fender was re-doing there Mexican line up to be more in line with their American specs and decided to give this guitar a shot. I must say, I am really digging it! I do not have a point of reference to compare it to other Telecasters, but the build quality seems on par with my American made Strat. The frets are well finished and the neck feels really comfortable (I went with the maple fret board version). The tuners do a nice job of keeping things in tune and the electronics work as they should. Still learning to use the Tele sound, but over all, I think this is a great guitar for the money.
