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. Not only is its unique pine body super lightweight and comfortable, but 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. Not only does the Modern Player Telecaster Plus feature an HSS pickup configuration, but it also sports two different single-coil pickups. That means you can get the liquid Tele lead tones you love, plus 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

My Favorite Fender

I own 4 Fender guitars, 2 strats and 2 teles. This is the least expensive of the 4 guitars and the one I play the most. With a little fiddling, I can get "just" the sound I want for whatever I'm playing, which is something I can't say about the others. For an inexpensive guitar, and a not-so-talented player, it plays like a dream, at least the equal of the other Fenders. You really can't go wrong with this guitar.

Seriously? You've got to be kidding Me... It's too good to be true!

Walked into my local guitar store intending to buy a Les Paul when this little beauty caught my eye. The finish is SPECTACULAR! The photos don't do it justice! The neck feels like a slightly wider strat neck, which I love. It just fits in my hands so well! Looks were solid, but who cares if it can't sound good. Believe me- This guitar kills! I put it up against Mexican Standards, American Standards, even Custom Shop Teles, Les Pauls, Strats but this guitar smashed them all! There's so much tonal variety!So seriously, go and buy this guitar! You owe it to your fingers! I had been riding the fence on whether I was a Fender or a Gibson guy. This guitar answers my dilemma: I'm a Fender Guy all the way!

its a winner

it came today i took it out of the box about six hour ago . An have not put it down yet. The neck is unreal the fret end are so smooth . the look the real i could go on and on. i have had some guitar in my year and i put this $399 one right up there with bunch. im not one that care about where it was made. where every this one was made fender have step up there game . Now for the one small ad i mean small detail. the the rear pick up im going to change it out its a little weak when you go to single coil . just going to put i a hotter one but im not i a hurry to do it im going to enjoy this girl to night . i did switch the plate around Vol tone the five way took me 5mins.im going to get another one and put stack pick up in that one and will be able to split all three pick ups . ok im goig back to playing .

SWISS ARMY GUITAR $

The easiest, lightest action on any Tele I have ever played. This was true of it with B.B. King Strings (Custom 52-10) and the Ernie Ball Super Slinky 9's I settled on. Very minimal adjusting. Having so many tonal options at your disposal is a treat. There ain't nuthin' that I am not ready for with this Baby in my hands. It is one of the most versatile guitars I own. I own several other stereo & Midi guitars. This guitar floors me no frills all out Bad to the Bone. In any genre ! ! !
