The bite and growl of P-90-style pickups

Nothing beats the crunch and growl of classic P-90-style pickups. That's why Fender gave their Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe a pair of their custom MP-90 single-coils. These pickups let the Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe singe the blues and tear out gritty rock riffs with ease. Discover the tone that's been shaping modern music for decades with the Fender Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe!

Resonant chambered mahogany body

Not only does the Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe's chambered mahogany body make this an incredibly comfortable guitar to play, but it also adds depth and resonance to its tone. Fat, warm, and woody, the Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe goes beyond the classic tone of a Fender Telecaster.

Rock-solid Strat-style bridge

To top it all off, Fender decided to give the Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe 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 Thinline Deluxe gives you the extra-tight sonics of a string-through-body tailpiece, providing you with tons of extra sustain.

Fender Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Classic Tele style with a unique twist

One S-T-R-O-N-G Tele!

I've played Teles since the 1960s, and I've had several, in various pickup configurations.But this one; it has the trademark Tele feel & sound, with the P-90s giving it some extra balance in tone. It plays beautifully clean, BUT those P-90s will come alive when overdriven!The construction & finishing touches are top quality; along with Sweetwater's 1st rate setup.As with so many of my other instruments purchased from Sweetwater, it came ready to play.
5/5

Amazing guitar

I am blown away by this thing! Mahogany body, P90s, nice thin, fast neck. I can't find a single flaw. Sounds great clean, distorted, covers a ton of tonal range. It sounds fat even with .009s on it.

A Keeper!

The first time I plugged this guitar in, it blew me away! The P90s just sing and cut through the mix effortlessly. They also have this percussive attack that I just can't get enough of. And to top it all off, they have a well-balanced frequency response. The notes just come out super clear--even when played through ample amounts of gain.The guitar feels great to play. Once you pick it up, you'll have a hard time putting it down--and I haven't even had mine set up to suit my playing style. Of course, the fact that it looks absolutely stunning doesn't hurt either.Now, as for the equipment I'm running this through, I'm just using a Fender Mustang III V2. I don't have any pedals. It's just the guitar straight to the amp.I mainly play disco punk, rock and alternative music. But I'm pretty sure this guitar would easily handle heavier styles equally well.Kudos to the Sweetwater team, especially Bob Furlong, for helping me with my purchase. The guitar arrived here in perfect condition. It was carefully inspected and packed before being shipped out. It's just topnotch customer service. I can't wait for my next purchase!

Big winner!

I bought this because I wanted a Tele and the price was very good. The pickups are hot, the tone is clean, the action is superb and I feel like I stole this thing! One of the best guitars I've ever owned. If I would change anything it would be putting the pickup switch below the pickups, not above. Other than that, a winner.
