The pair of Player Series single-coil Telecaster pickups are crisp and articulate - it's authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck's comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. The addition of a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5"-radius fingerboard makes it easier to express yourself musically. To enhance the traditional twang and bite of a Telecaster, Fender added bent-steel saddles to the string-throughbody bridge for precise intonation and to help your sound cut through the mix, sustaining until the sun burns out. Other features include master volume and tone controls, a 3-way pickup switch with barrel tip, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deal - as Fender as it gets.
