Fender Player Plus Nashville Telecaster - Opal Spark with Pau Ferro Fingerboard
A Vintage-tinged Modern Tele with Strat Tones
If you think Teles are twanging one-trick ponies, you've got another thing coming. The Fender Player Plus Nashville Telecaster not only delivers classic Tele tones, its 3-pickup configuration and 5-way switching give you expanded sonic options that are unobtainable with a typical 2-pup model, including an array of Strat-style textures. On top of that, the Player Plus Nashville Tele includes state-of-the-art Player Plus Noiseless pickups for hum-free performance. A modern "C"-shaped neck and 22-fret, 12-inch-radius fingerboard give you a decidedly contemporary feel with fast action and comfortable playability. You also get a synthetic bone nut, modern 6-saddle string-through bridge, and Fender deluxe cast/sealed locking tuners. If you appreciate classic Teles but crave modern playability and a broader tonal palette, pick up the Player Plus Nashville Telecaster. But be forewarned — you won't want to put it down.
Vintage vibe with a modern edge
For their Player Plus Series guitars, Fender went back to the drawing board with updated radii, more historically accurate body shapes, new head-turning finishes, and a classic logo that harkens back to the Fenders of yesteryear. But these smooth-playing instruments also look to the future with modern enhancements that include 22-fret necks, upgraded bridges for better sustain, and state-of-the-art Player Plus Noiseless pickups that crank out legendary Fender tone by the boatload — without the hum.
Huge tonal range from three pickups and 5-way switching
Fender put a Player Plus Noiseless Strat single-coil pickup in between the neck and bridge Player Plus Noiseless Tele pickups on the Player Plus Nashville Telecaster, giving you more tonal options than you have with 2-pickup Teles. You get access to the warm yet biting tone you get from a Strat's middle pickup position, from rich rhythm tones to snappy, overdriven leads. If you're already a Tele player, like so many of us here at Sweetwater, then you'll hear your guitar rig in a whole new light with the Player Plus Nashville Tele.
Easy-playing maple neck and pau ferro fingerboard
Leo Fender wasn't a guitar player. In fact, he got his start repairing radios. When designing his original instruments, he had no idea that guitars weren't supposed to have maple necks. This Player Plus Nashville Telecaster has the revered maple neck and a pau ferro fingerboard, supplying you with a snappy, easy-playing feel. In keeping with contemporary tastes, the Player Plus Nashville Telecaster has a more modern "C"-shaped maple neck with a satin urethane finish.
