An already distinctive classic Tele cast in a whole new light.

The Modern Player series continues that great my-first-Fender tradition, with thoroughly modern features and several distinctively unconventional new takes on our most revered instruments-all with outstandingly attainable value.

The Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe casts an already distinctive classic Telecaster model in a whole new light with a full-throated pair of single-coil Modern Player MP-90 pickups.

  • All around excellent.

    As reviewed by Steve Neme on 6/25/2012

    This guitar is amazing for the price. Right off the bat, the neck is extremely playable, the P-90's give it a unique sound (beautiful in the middle position) and the look is vintage. I picked up the Sunburst color a couple weeks ago and thought it was hideous... then it started to grow on me. I think that's the best way to describe the guitar, go play one, initially it may not knock you off your stool, but give it time. I ran it through a Twin Reverb and couldn't have been more impressed. The price point is great, the quality seems to be quite good, and it's a freaking Fender Thinline! The only issue i seem to be having is with the input jack - the nut doesn't seem to stay tight, but I had that issue with a previous Tele so I'm not too surprised by that. I'm into the Post-Rock scene as far as influences are concerned (Explosions in the Sky, Gates, Moving Mountains) and this thing does "twinkly rock" as well as the heavier stuff. Go check it out, you will not be disappointed.

  • Sweet guitar on the cheap

    As reviewed by austin carter on 1/10/2013

    I absolutely love this guitar. I am a big fan of telecasters so i wanted another but i liked how this one had P-90's to have a different sound. The guitar plays fantastic. I have played a 50's style mexican telecaster for years and the quality of this guitar is actually a little better than that one. I bought the tobacco sunburst style and the finish is absolutely gorgeous. The p-90's are thicker and fuller than normal single coils. They are a little fatter sounding than i am used to playing so i typically keep my tone controls completely dimed out. I looked at the Blacktop tele's and jaguars before this one but the quality of those are absolute crap compared to this one. I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone. I know a lot of people say you have to set these guitars up to make them sound good, but i think you pretty much need to set up any guitar you buy before playing it a lot. I did change out the strings, set the string height, and adjusted the intonation right when i got it so it plays awesome.

  • bang for your buck

    As reviewed by Anthony Crowe on 3/9/2013

    So I bought one of the modern player telecasters a couple of months ago now, and I am thoroughly pleased with it. I hadn't known about it until about a week before I decided to buy a new ax. I was eyeing the Jaguarillo, a pawn shop series from fender, but when I asked the worker there for suggestions, he said to try the modern player. So I did and it really is a beautiful guitar, very nice, clean sound, but also handles distortion well. The only real deterrent is that it seems to be a bit cheaply made, which sounds concerning at first, but it doesn't effect the performance, but its something to consider. This is such a good guitar for moderate players, its a pretty stunning guitar and sounds great. I had enough money leftover to get an amp on top of it that works well with it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a guitar in this price range or even a little bit above.
