Fender Player Telecaster MN Black
Glistening with clarity. The Fender Player Tele comes equipped with a pair of Alnico 5 single-coil pickups for a classic, punchy tone of true vintage character. It's this crisp, distinctive sound that has given the Telecaster its impeccable status across a variety of genres. So, naturally, Fender have ensured that the Player series Tele maintains its huge reputation, by constructing it with a pair of first-rate electronics.
No nonsense. The Player Tele's traditional electronic layout ensures you can shape your sound, your way. Without complication. A simple 3-way selector lets you alternate between the snap and twang of the bridge pickup, and the more rounded neck pickup. What's more – you can roll on the high frequencies using the tone knob, for that extra bite in your sound. Topped off with a volume control for cranking the gain in performance, the Player Tele gives you total tonal freedom on stage, with elite clarity.
Every inch of the Player Telecaster is crafted for performance. And it shows. A lightweight alder body lets players roam free on stage, along with a single-cutaway design for effortless access to the upper frets. Fender know better than anyone that a guitar should enhance creativity. And this Player Series model is certainly no exception.
The maple neck is shaped into a modern “C”, fitting perfectly into the palm of your hand. This way, you can play every riff, chord, and solo with total control and precision. Satin-finished on the back and glossed on the front – all surfaces of the fretboard and neck are distinctively sleek. What this means, is that your fingers will soar across the glossed fingerboard whilst movement of your hand will remain fluid across the back of the neck, ideal for fast playing. Put simply, the Player Telecaster won’t hold you back. Because, ultimately, Fender know what it takes to deliver a truly refined playing experience.
Every note you play on this wonderful instrument will sound full and rich. That's because Fender have included a vintage strings-through-body bridge. Known for bringing excellent sustain, you'll be able to let your solos ring out for days. Plus, thanks to compensated brass barrel saddles, your intonation will be flawless and consistent.
