Often called a Nashville Tele, the Modern Player Series take on a 3 pickup Telecaster is a little different. In the bridge we have a Modern Player Humbucker that has just the right amount of oomph and heat to push an amp into drive mode perfectly. In the middle position, we have a Stratocaster Pickup that instinctually know how to play nice with it's other two cohorts. The neck pickup is a Tele Neck Pickup, complete with the classic Chrome Cover. A Five Way switch is installed for a wealth of amazing tone but a mini toggle is also installed that splits the bridge pickup into single coil mode. A tele with 6 tones at the flip of a switch is quite an amazing feat! A master volume and master tone round out the electronic details.
The body is made from Pine, an often overlooked and under appreciated tone wood. Some of the earliest Fender Proto Types were made of Pine and once you hear one, it's obvious why! It's not only light weight but it's also lively and resonant. One of my personal favorite woods to team with 50's era Tele accoutrements for unrivaled quality of tone.
The neck is made from maple and is carved to a classic feeling Fender C shape. It's not terribly slim but it's no baseball baseball bat. It is topped with a 9.5" fretboard radius and 22 jumbo frets. The result is a surprisingly fast playing guitar that allows for big bends, easy vibrato, and great intonation. Other notable features include a 6 saddle thru body bridge that offers great intonation, all nickel and chrome hardware for that shiny automotive look and a bullet truss rod adjuster for that late 60's vibe.
