tjon901's review"Thinline in Fenders new Modern Player series"

Fender Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe
The Fender Modern Player series is a new line of guitars from Fender that provides beginner players Fender quality with low prices. Most of the guitars in this series are around 400 bucks which is great for a real Fender. This is the Thinline tele of the bunch. The Thinline Telecaster was introduced in the late 60s to help lower the weight of the guitar when Fenders supply of lightweight wood ran low. They gave the guitar a hollow compartment on the upper part of the body and gave it an F-hole for resonance. The body on this guitar is made from mahogany. It has a bolt on maple neck with a maple fretboard. The neck has 22 frets with a C neck carve. The pickups in this Thinline Tele are a set of P90s which is cool. The controls are setup like a 72 Deluxe with a volume and tone for each pickup and a 3 way toggle on the upper bout.

UTILIZATION

This guitar has a bit more modern feel than most Telecasters. The radius on the neck isnt as old school as some Teles. The radius on this model is 9.5 inches which is still round by modern standards but pretty flat for a Telecaster. This means you can get a lower action and lead playing is much easier. This guitar has a Stratocaster style hardtail bridge which I think is better than a normal Telecaster ashtray bridge. This bridge lets you intonate every string and doesnt have sharp edges to get in the way of your playing.

SOUNDS

The mahogany body and the thinline design gives this guitar a unique sound. This is not an all out twang machine like a traditional Telecaster but a lot of the twang is still there. The P90s in this guitar you get a more refined twang. They are single coils but they have a thicker sound. With the p-90 pickups this guitar is great for mellow stuff. You can get really jazz sound with some tone knob tweaking. The guitar is also great for blues. In the bridge position some of the tele twang comes out but it compliments the smooth sounds nicely.

OVERALL OPINION

The Modern Player series is great. This guitar could easily sell for double the price but they are selling it at a reasonable cost so younger people can get a hold of it. With these lower cost unique guitars younger Fender players will be able to try out something different than your typical Stratocaster or your typical Telecaster. If you are a younger Fender player and are looking for something different you should look into the Modern Player line up. They are selling their unique pawn shop style guitars for a really low price so you can check out some cool takes on your classic favorites.

UTILIZATION

The handle C FENDER varnish is very comfortable.
The body is surprisingly lightweight, our backs do not complain (clin_oeil).
I will not deny that it captures many spurious frequency with the P90, a change is required (recovery pickguard and cavity with copper), otherwise superb sound.

SOUNDS

The original sounds are correct after a good tuning the guitar, however I did not like the micro neck, so I replaced with a Phat Cat humbucker Seymour Duncan home, with amendment pickguard (the cavity of the timber is built for).
Now I find the sound more defined after changing micro neck, clean electronics at 3 1 contact and collection around with adhesive copper.

OVERALL OPINION

A good violin (some cheap equipment: nut), good Modern Player Telecaster with some modifications for me.
Seconded uncommon especially for parts pickguard.
Very good value for money!

Ps: The notice on the site ea .. zic is mine, this to share my experience as possible.

fleur de métal's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" To put in your stacks"

Fender Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe
Made in china, surprising for the fender, the finish is just as surprising
I would say is the beautiful well finished (I have some one to notice traces of varnish or paint to default) one piece maple neck is relatively flat end, not reported so it affects not displease me, no frets that hurt so we feel that Fender did not want to usurp his reputation, just to see the switch which I believe is a bit light, 3-ply plate, in short not disappointed at all;

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice very good taken in hand, actually requires a slight "slippage" of your hand for natural be even better, in the spirit of 60's

SOUNDS

Surprising that little guitar go pretty near every style, perhaps not in the death metal, but there's shovels to it eh!
harmonics are doing well overall sound is very good in my opinion it sounds very good in rock you can imagine, do not expect to hear a telecaster like the others, it sounds velvety but not too fat, I do not know too whence come these pickups but I find them quite powerful and balanced.

OVERALL OPINION

Young users of the beast, I had a little to like guitar and I must say that for the price it should go in your stack guitar as it is amazing for its price, I admit I had the prejudice that is fender? a Chinese, and although manufacturing is neat, a little detail the selector seems a little cheap but still at this price nothing prevents you to change it, it's just to say something. Light and well balanced you would have realized I am very satisfied with my purchase; It does not have a cardboard guitar is a good fender, but it is only my humble opinion.
