A Tone Tweaker's Tele

The Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus is one of the most uncommon Telecasters we've ever seen at Sweetwater. At first glance, this unusual axe looks like a custom shop creation. Its unique pine body is super lightweight and comfortable, and it also gives you a light and airy tone. To get the most out of this tone, Fender gave the Modern Player Telecaster Plus a singular set of pickups, including a traditional Tele-style neck pickup, a Stratocaster-style middle pickup, and a humbucker at the bridge. What's more, you also get a Strat-style hardtail bridge to lock down your tone. Curious? Keep reading to find out more about the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus.

Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Ultra-versatile pickup configuration
  • Incredible tonewood combination
  • Rock-solid Strat-style bridge
Ultra-versatile pickup configuration

If you're looking for a huge range of tone, then you need a Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus. It features an HSS pickup configuration, with two different single-coil pickups, which means you can get the liquid Tele lead tones you love and classic Strat midrange bite. What's more, the Modern Player Telecaster Plus's humbucking bridge pickup features a mini toggle coil split switch, giving you an even wider range of tone.

Incredible tonewood combination

As classic as it gets! The Modern Player Telecaster Plus features Fender's original Tele wood combination, bringing together the sweet sound of a pine body with the snap and spank of a maple neck and fingerboard. Not only does this make the Modern Player Telecaster Plus incredibly comfortable to play, but it also provides you with that quintessential Tele tone.

Rock-solid Strat-style bridge

To top it all off, Fender decided to give the Modern Player Telecaster Plus a modern Stratocaster bridge. This bridge features a 6-saddle hardtail configuration, which lets you perfectly tune your axe. Even cooler, the Modern Player Telecaster Plus gives you the extra-tight sonics of a string-through-body tailpiece, providing you with extra sustain.

Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • A modern take on a traditional solidbody electric guitar
  • The original Tele tonewood combo, including a pine body and a maple neck and fingerboard
  • Flexible HSS configuration features both Strat and Tele single-coil pickups
  • Coil-splittable humbucker at the bridge

A pro guitar at a beginers price

I will not claim that I know all there is to know about Fenders,Tele's, Strat,s or elect guitars in general for I am mainly an acoustic player....but the versatility and tone and should I mention the price? The guitar is more than fine right out of the box, it's excellent...yes you can (and I might) go ahead and mod it out with other pickups you feel are lacking, change the strings to your preferred or whatever, I for the time being let the Modern Player do the initial work and when needed I use whatever external effects and or processing I feel I need or what for the occasion, and I'm set...I even run this thru my Zoom A3 and Peavey Vypyr VIP3 for some incredible acoustic sounds.....does feel odd to get an more than acceptable acoustic guitar sound while holding an electric guitar, but I'll get use to it eventually....

Fantastic Instrument

Read the rave reviews on this guitar, scratched my head and thought, how could it be? A chinese fender tele? I now own 15 guitars due to one review that stated, "... tired of people calling this guitar good for the money - it's just a great guitar period." I bought it and have played it for a few days and couldn't agree more. Beautiful (quality) and versatile - 5 way switch with the option of splitting the humbucker gets you pretty much any sound you want. Love the middle (strat) and neck (tele) together and the bridge as a single coil and middle (strat) together. Other positions isolating pickups sound as you'd expect. The next road trip with the family will include this guitar and a 15 watt Peavy Vypyr mod amp - that's it. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Would pay 3 times as much for this guitar

I cannot believe the play-ability of this guitar. The slim D neck plays amazing and the response of the pickups via the single volume control let you go from slightly dirty to full blown blues. Combined with the 3 pickup choices and the unlimited combinations this guitar is worth much much more.

Best decision ever

So last year I went to a ZZ Top concert and really loved his guitar! (Especially after me and my buddy got pulled on stage haha!) He was playing an all purple Tele STYLE with only on humbucker in it. It was probably a week after that concert that I decided I needed to get my self one. Needless to say I bought this. At first just the looks pulled me in, and then I played it. It is by far the most comfortable guitar to play that I own, and we have a gibson les paul... too heavy haha, and a 50th anniversery startocaster. It has the pine wood, and it has the glossy neck which I wasn't crazy about at first but now its great, the lipstick tube original tele pick up, a decent single coil, and the humbucker. Now I'll be honest. At first, I liked the humbucker I think just because i wanted too like it. But after playing it for a while, I realized it was pretty thin and flat sounding. I replaced it for a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates (like Billy Gibbons!) Now the things a freaking beast. But over all this is my favorite guitar I own, and it's the only guitar I perform with now. If you have any extra money, go ahead and make the best choice of your life haha!
