What Fender Say:
Throughout its history, Fender® has always made a special point of welcoming new players to the family by offering entry-level instruments of remarkable style and substance (such as the Duo-Sonic™, Mustang® and Musicmaster™ guitars), with great sound, classic looks, solid performance and eminent affordability. The Modern Player series continues that great my-first-Fender tradition, with thoroughly modern features and several distinctively unconventional new takes on our most revered instruments-all with outstandingly attainable value.
The Modern Player Telecaster® Plus HSS is that rare bird among Telecaster guitars-a triple-pickup model-further distinguished by a pine body and mini-toggle coil-split switch for the Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup. Other features include "C"-shaped maple neck, maple fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 22 jumbo frets, Modern Player single-coil Telecaster neck pickup and Modern Player Stratocaster middle pickup, five-way pickup switching, three-ply pickguard, knurled "chrome-dome" control knobs, vintage-style Stratocaster strings-through-body six-saddle hard-tail bridge, vintage-style tuners and nickel/chrome hardware. Available in Honey Burst and Charcoal Transparent.
