Fender's all new Player Telecaster is here to help you take your next step forward in your guitar playing journey. Featuring authentic Fender tone, a great set of pickups, and enhanced playability, this guitar is a professional level solidbody with a full lifetime of playing ahead of it. The entire line up of new Player Series models are some of the finest guitars Fender has made at a price that is incredibly affordable.
The spirited tone of this guitar comes from a new set of pickups specially designed for the Player Series. Its two single-coil Player Series Telecaster pickups are made with Alnico 5 magnets for enhanced tonal clarity and response, and add a new layer of Tele twang right at your fingertips. The Player Tele also adds a 22nd fret for more range than ever before, while a string-through-body bridge prioritizes playability and sustain for an overall exceptional playing experience. Plus, the four-bolt "F" logo neck plate, spaghetti-logo headstock, and authentically-contoured body add another layer of genuine Fender vibe. Thanks to articulate tone, exceptional Fender feel, and the unmistakable overall vibe of the Telecaster, this Player Series model is a remarkable instrument that's ready for the taking.
