Great 24 Inch Scale Option

Comments about Fender Modern Player Short Scale Telecaster:

Great 24" scale guitar for my very specific needs. Plays great, sounds great, and looks fantastic. This is a very limited production model, not in Fender's catalog or on their website. Background -- while looking for a high-quality 24" scale Fender guitar to supplement my HSS Stratocaster, I thought that my only options were a Jaguar or Mustang. While shopping at GC and mulling over my limited options, a salesman said "have you seen this?" Not only was it a hot looking Telecaster with a 24" scale, it had a maple neck (my personal favorite) which was not available on any of the Jaguar or Mustang models. This is a real Fender guitar (although made in China) and not a Squier model. The neck is very good quality, the tuners not bad at all, and the nice butterscotch finished body is only slightly smaller than a real Telecaster (-3/4" in length, and -5/8" in width). Although it was a real 'looker' and very comfortable to play, the Chinese electronics were not up to my standards at all. But, with a lower price tag (and a 20% GC discount coupon), I reasoned that I could replace the electronics and still come out ahead. And, I would have a better looking guitar than any of the Jaguars or Mustangs. So, that's what I did. There was a lot of consideration given to the replacement pickups. I finally decided on Seymour Duncans – a Pearly Gates humbucker for the neck, and a Telecaster 5-2 model for the bridge. Each of these pickups gives me sounds that I cannot get on my Strat. Also, of particular importance was that these two pickups blend together very nicely with the pickup switch in the center position. Bottom-line, I'm in for a total cost that is less than either a Jaguar or Mustang, and I think I have come out way ahead in terms of both looks and sound quality.

big fender sounds in a small package

Comments about Fender Modern Player Short Scale Telecaster:

I have always been a fan of 24" scale guitars, so I was blown away by this fender modern player. It is small and light and just a blast to play. The pickups are great, and put out genuine Fender sounds. I had a little trouble with the input jack when I first got it, but this was an easy fix. I have several guitars, but this is the one I play the majority of the time. It works well for everything from jazz to heavy metal, but it is unbeatable for blues.

    Comments about Fender Modern Player Short Scale Telecaster:

    Beatiful 50's style (tuners and brigde machine), with a colour yellow trans (you can see the wood lines). The brigde pickup have a bright and sparkly sound, the neck pickup have very fat warm sound. The neck is short and a litle bit fat. I really enjoy this Guitar.
