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

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.

The Frankincaster!

Beautiful, plays like a dream, plethora of sound options, affordable, and fender. This guitar is for the person that can't decide if they want a strat, a tele, or a paul. It's got it all. Flawless in every aspect and such a comfortable contoured body! All I can say is I am more than satisfied!!!

Great Deal, Great Price, Great Guitar!

Don't be fooled because this is made in China. This is a genuine Fender, quality guitar through and through. How can we in the USA compete when China is crafting genuine Fender merchandise this good for way cheaper than the price of an American made Tele? Sorry, but I see no sense at all in paying double or even triple the price for an American made Tele that is not as versatile as this guitar. This thing is a well designed, well built, beautiful instrument for a ridiculously affordable price tag. Great pickup configuration and many tone variations available to the player of any style of music. Feels good in the hands. Only alteration is I hate the gloss on the neck because it creates hand drag and slows down playing movements, so I sanded it for 5-6 minutes with 400 grit sandpaper, and it's as smooth now as my HSH Strat's neck. Grab you a piece of Fender history and get this for your collection. I bet you'll be pleased.

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 ! ! !

Both Sweetwater and this guitar are great.

This is the first guitar I've bought sight unseen. To many good reviews on this one, China or not. Sweetwater had the most in stock, and the pine wood grain is beautiful through this finish, so I had pick of the litter.Now to get a salesperson that knows about guitars on the line to grab the best one for me. My guy turned out to be (and still is) Alan Miller. He couldn't have been more helpful and patient with me. I had concerns that the humbucker wouldn't have enough crunch, so after much deliberation, we decided to change it out with a Dimarzio DP 100 and re-string and set the action height with Ernie Ball Heavy Bottom Light tops for the non-ripmeoff price. He also recommended a nice Gator case that fits the guitar perfectly for under $100.The guitar was well packaged and arrived via Fed Ex in good shape.How does it sound? I plugged it in to my Marshall JCM 800 with a Kerry King EQ through the effects loop and took about 10 minutes to get the EQ and tone knobs on the amp right. WOW! Played it out of the box for three hours. Feedback sounds wonderfull and is totally controllable. So many tones. Never had to touch the gain on the amp, just rolled back the volume knob and it sounds great through the whole range. Knobs and switches are very nice. The whole guitar is very nice. Grabbed a bar F at the top of the neck. Not only did I not have to turn my hand into "the claw" barely had to press and no fret buzz anywhere. All strings ringing. Good job on the quality control Fender. There's a lot of music it this guitar. This is one that's going to get better as it ages and gets used to not being a tree and more used to being a guitar with a little sweat in the wood.Sweetwater has a new repeat customer and Alan Miller is the man.
