I've played about 4 of these guitars, and I finally purchased a Condition 1 model in the sunburst finish from MF. All of these that I've played have been pretty much identical in regard to the things I've noticed.

They all play like much more expensive instruments. For a guitar made in China, this guitar plays like at least a Mexican Tele, maybe even better than that. The sunburst is dynamic and gorgeous, the pine body looks great through the finish as well. Great overall tone, sounds great no matter what kind of tone you want (within reason), I've played through Marshall combos, Marshall stacks, and Vox combos and gotten brilliant tone through all of them. The pickups are fantastic on this guitar, I won't be replacing them.

That said, on all 4 of these that I've played, the humbucker has been set remarkably low, much lower than the middle single-coil, making that middle pickup much more powerful before adjustment. After raising the humbucker in to a more normal position, I get great grit (say that 5 times) from it, it drives extremely well.

If you have the dough, I would not hesitate to grab one of these. You will not regret it.

    Comments about Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Electric Guitar:

    I was on the fence about purchasing this but im glad I did. ive had about 12 schecters (which are awesome guitars)and wanted something with a little more twangy clean tones. I always wanted a tele but didn't know if id like the feel of it or not. but this thing is great the neck has a good feel and the frets are surprisingly nice. the guitar came setup pretty good out of the box, all I did was adjust the truss rod slightly, lowered the strings and adjusted the inotation on two strings, but the finish was great and the frets were perfect, very good for the price and now it makes me want a real American telecaster. I just wish there were American teles that had this great tonal versatility with the tele, strat and humbucker pickups. if you're comfortable with doing some minor adjustments then just buy it its well worth the price, but if you want something to play out of the box and don't want to mess with it you might have some complaints and this may not be for you. the pickups aren't the best in the world but they're more than good enough for jamming and having fun. A+ from fende for offering an affordable fun guitar

      I can't believe the deal I got on this guitar. The customer support I received was fantastic. They answered all my questions plus gave me additional advice.The guitar itself is solid and the setup was near perfect. Musicians Friend is my first place to shop for all my music needs.

        Great axe! This is my new go to guitar for recording and writing. No need to switch guitars to record different parts. It's a Les Paul, Strat, and Tele all in one. Also, it looks great and feels great. Well done Fender.

            This guitar was set up perfectly right out of the box. Extremely comfortable neck and great fret work. Practically plays itself. For a Chinese made Fender, I was impressed! I would put it up against a similar guitar costing two to three times as much! A great value!

              Comments about Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Electric Guitar:

              Picked up the scratch and dent version for cheap, there was significant fret buzz and the neck was warped. Swapped out the tremolo and humbucker and this thing sounds awesome. The neck is really smooth and has a nice wood pattern on the back. As you've probably read, this guitar is BLACK. I wasn't too keen on the brownish color so this was a plus for me. Bottom line, the stock electronics and parts aren't great but this is a fantastic project guitar for the money.

                  Comments about Fender Modern Player Telecaster Plus Electric Guitar:

                  I bought this guitar locally (I love Musician's Friend, but I like to play an instrument before I make a purchase) and it is a lot of bang for the buck. The neck is really smooth, it's easy to play, and the sustain is excellent. I was ready to spend a lot more money for a quality guitar... played Gibson Les Pauls, SGs, a few Strats, and a few Gretsch and G&L's, looking for that perfect "fit" and for me, it was this Tele. Although it's made in China, it's a big step up from the Squiers and handled just as well as the MIA Fenders I played. (Of course, MIA is the way to go, but for that much more money, I didn't see that much more of an improvement in the tone.)

                  Also, I purchased the charcoal finish. The picture above doesn't do it justice at all. It's actually quite dark gray and not brown. It's almost black, but you can still see the grain of the wood. The neck also has more of a golden/yellow hue to it, not the white that is shown. It's a beautiful instrument.

                  If I had to complain about anything, I cut my hand on the saddle-adjustment screws, but I'll eventually get those replaced when I get the intonation and neck professionally set up.

                  All in all, this is a great guitar if you want something that looks and feels great without breaking the bank.

                      I first got an Ibanez Maple because of the fast neck and my fingers slowing down from old age. It was a good guitar but just not for me. Didn't have the sweet tone and flat neck was hard to get used to so sent it back and got this telecater. Oh my gosh! It is so fun to play and sounds so sweet. My wife who hates electric guitar even loves it. And for the price, NOTHING can beat it. With the versality of the pick ups, I can get any sould I want out of it and play it with ease. Also, Musicians Friend was awesome in taking back the other guitar and sending this to me. I got it within 3 days after I ordered it.
