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

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.

Modern telecaster custom plus

I bought one in 2015 i liked the guitar but it would not stay in tune when hard playing changed the tuners to true lock fender tuners,that worked perfect,the five way switchgot sloppy,changed it to a fender switch that worked,talked to a pro he said the pickups were questionable being fenderor not put seymore duncan quarter pound set in now it is a top notch that the pros like it plays like my 56 tele but better love it.


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 ! ! !

I told my self I would never buy a Chinese guitar. Folks, I am eating my words today and they are tasting real good. Do not under estimate the quality of this guitar. This is one fine instrument. Sweetwater has a fantastic deal on this guitar. I am blown away by the build quality. It is outstanding. A Fender Tele tone with a little something extra. It looks even better in person and plays "Oh So Nice". I am very happy. Thanks Joe.I would recommend this guitar to anyone.

I' ve had this guitar a few weeks. Installed some Joe Barden pickups and wow! I have to admit this is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever owned. The tones are amazing. I can go from jazz, country to flat out rock with this guitar. For a pro, pickup changes are a must. This guitar plays and sounds as good as any custom fender can or would. For the money! Just a few upgrades and minor adjustments you will have a home made custom (chinese custom) that is. Give this guitar a try. It looks amazing. The online pictures don't do it justice. All my muscian friends are as amazed how nice it looks and well it plays. Just sure excitement. Note: The chinese are now making fine quality guitars. Thanks again Sweetwater

Having your cake, and eating it...

I actually purchased this at a local music shop before it was available from Sweetwater (sorry guys). It literally jumped off of the rack, because of the way it's finished (transparent sunburst accentuates the pine end grain). When I played it, I was really impressed. When I looked at the price, I was blown away. First, it's a Fender, through and through...for less money than some Squiers. Awesome workmanship. Great-feeling neck, and comfortable body (with the gut cut). The most versatile Tele I've ever played, tone-wise. With that split humbucker at the bridge and the Strat pup in the middle, the variations are endless...and they go way beyond the standard Tele twang...which this one delivers too. Can't say enough good things about this instrument. If you're anything like me, you won't be able to stop playing it.
