Fender Player Plus Telecaster - Cosmic Jade w/ Maple Fingerboard
Contrary to popular opinion, Telecasters aren't limited to twang-inflected chicken pickin'. Case in point: The Fender Player Plus Tele. This solidbody electric guitar's Player Plus Noiseless pickups are equally at home with jazz, blues, and rock as they are with country, plus they don't produce 60-cycle hum — even if you plug into a saturated amp or a fuzz pedal. On top of that, the Player Plus Tele includes a series mode for expanded sonic textures. A modern "C"-shaped neck and 22-fret, 12-inch-radius fingerboard give you a decidedly contemporary feel with fast action and comfortable playability. You also get a synthetic bone nut, modern 6-saddle string-through bridge, and Fender deluxe cast/sealed locking tuners. If you appreciate classic Teles but crave modern playability and a broader tonal palette, pick up the Player Plus Telecaster. But be forewarned — you won't want to put it down.
