Rock music would not be the same without it
The Fender Telecaster is an integral part of Rock history, and Fender is keeping this spirit alive with the Player Series Tele MN BTB, an instrument that comes in a classic Butterscotch Blonde finish and combines all of the attributes associated with a genuine Tele. These include an alder body, a slim maple neck with a maple fingerboard, and pickups with AlNiCo-V magnets, which have been specially developed for the Player Series and provide an enormously versatile sound that will fit seamlessly into many musical styles. This is rounded off by the typical Tele-type bridge, which delivers an extra helping of resonance with its string-through-body design, and a set of reliable machine heads that adorn the guitar's classic Telecaster headstock.
Anyone playing Country, Blues, or any kind of Rock & Roll can’t go wrong with a Telecaster. The Tele has a well-earned reputation as one of the world's most playable electric guitars, and the Player Series Tele is no exception. With its slim, matt-lacquered maple neck and 22-fret high-gloss maple fingerboard, players get a combination of finishes that used to be available only on much more expensive models. The two New Player AlNiCo-V single coil pickups deliver the typical Tele sound, which of course includes the familiar "twang" that can be controlled via a three-way switch, as well as a single control each for volume and tone. The instrument’s authentic looks would of course not be complete without the classic metal bridge plate, which thanks to the string-through-body design and steel saddles provides an extra portion of resonance and sustain.
Welcome to the world of the Fender Telecaster
In spite of its high build quality, the Fender Player Series Tele MN BTB is available at an attractive price, which makes it ideal for guitarists who want to add an authentic Fender to their collection as well as for beginners looking to have a reliable and high-quality Tele in Fender's classic Butterscotch Blonde finish as part of their arsenal right from the start. The comfortable slim-taper maple neck should appeal to everyone, and the New Player AlNiCo-V single coils put everything from crystalline cleans through to full-on overdrive sounds at the player's fingertips, with the Telecaster's trademark assurance that the sound will always cut through the mix while delivering plenty of headroom and of course the famous "Tele twang".
Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Timeless Fender amplifier models such as the Bassman, Twin, Deluxe, and Princeton also enjoy a stellar reputation. Besides maintaining its classic product portfolio, however, the company is also constantly developing new products that make Fender a driving force in today’s music industry.
Versatile AlNiCo-V pickups
The Fender Player Series Telecaster's combination of a solid wood body and neck together with its New Player AlNiCo-V single coils gives it the authentic "Tele" sound described above, which makes this instrument a great choice for any style even remotely associated with Rock & Roll. And the guitar truly comes into its own when combined with a high-quality tube amplifier that brings out every nuance of its sound - perfect for the studio, the rehearsal room, and the stage, all of which the Fender Telecaster has long called home.
