The Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus is one of the most uncommon Telecasters we've ever seen at Music Experience. 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.
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.
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.
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 Player guitars deliver thoroughly modern features and distinctively unconventional takes on revered Fender instruments. The Modern Player Telecaster Plus is that rarest of birds—a three-pickup Tele® model, further distinguished by a pine body, Stratocaster® middle pickup, powerful humbucking bridge pickup, special switching and more. One of the most individual and tonally versatile Telecaster models Fender has ever offered.
Pine is an unusual choice for an electric guitar body, although it has historic precedent—some of the very earliest Fender electric guitars were fashioned from it. A plentiful softwood with an attractive tight grain, pine imparts a warm-sounding tone with a broadly even frequency response across lows, midrange and high end. The Modern Player Telecaster Plus presents one of the more unusual and tonally versatile Telecaster pickup layouts, with not two but three—a Modern Player Telecaster neck pickup, a Modern Player Stratocaster middle pickup and a Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup. In addition to its distinctive three-pickup HSS configuration, the Modern Player Telecaster Plus also has a mini-toggle coil-split switch between the two control knobs that selects one of the two coils of the Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup.
