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.
Modern Player single-coil Telecaster neck pickup
Modern Player Stratocaster middle pickup
Modern Player humbucking bridge pickup
Five-way pickup switch
Mini-toggle coil-split switch for bridge pickup
Vintage-style string-through-body Stratocaster hard-tail bridge Pine Body
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.
HSS Pickup Configuration with Stratocaster Middle Pickup
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.
Coil Split Switch
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.
