A Classic Fender Bass with a Modern Twist!
Fender's Telecaster Bass is back and better than ever. If you're looking for a classic-style bass with huge tone, you're going to love the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass. Unlike Tele-style basses of the past, the Modern Player Telecaster Bass features two rock-solid humbucking pickups, providing you with flexible and expressive tone. A C-shaped maple neck and traditional alder body feel great and provide you with plenty of pop. Vintage style "chrome-dome" control knobs and a 4-saddle bridge also add excellent touches of class to the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass.Fender Modern Player Telecaster Bass Solidbody Electric Bass at a Glance:

Far from the new kid on the block, the Modern Player Telecaster Bass continues a 4-decade legacy of bass design. The first Telecaster Bass hit the market in May of 1968, reviving the look of the original '51 Precision Bass, which was inspired by the original Telecaster guitar. Featuring an oversized Tele body and a typical Tele headstock, the Telecaster Bass found favor particularly among rock bassists, ranging from Green Day's Mike Dirnt to Sting. At Sweetwater, we're excited to see this Fender classic make a comeback.Twice the pickups, twice the tone
Here's where the Modern Player Telecaster Bass takes a major departure from the vintage Fender Tele Bass. The Modern Player Telecaster Bass features a pair of MASSIVE Wide Range Precision Bass humbuckers. These powerful, high-mass dual-coil pickups give you extremely rich and 3-dimensional tone. What's more, they're positioned very close to the bridge and neck, allowing you to blend their distinct tones to get exactly the sound you want.Tried-and-true tonewood combo
