Fender Modern Player series announced
Great Deals on Fender Guitars
The Fender Modern Player Series shows the company's commitment to encouraging new players to join the family, by providing entry-level instruments that don't scrimp on Fender quality. Combining great sound, classic looks, solid performance and affordability, Fender's new range provides unconventional takes on some of the world's most respected instruments. The Mrange is made up of four guitars and three basses. The Modern Player Telecaster Plus HSS is a triple pickup model, with a pine body and mini-toggle coil-split switch. The guitar also features a C-shaped maple neck, maple fretboard with 9.5" radius and 22 jumbo frets, making it easy to get the best possible tone from the five-way pick up selection. Available in two colours, honey burst and charcoal Transparent, the Telecaster Plus is completed with vintage style string through body six saddle hard tail bridge, chrome-dome knobs and vintage style tuners. The Modern Player Telecaster Thinline Deluxe takes the classic Tele and adds in a pair of growling, single-coil MP-90 pickups. With a mahogany body, C-shaped maple neck, maple fretboard with 9.5" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, the Thinline Tele is crafted to make it one of the most playable in the Modern Player range. The guitar is available in three-colour sunburst, black transparent and vintage white. Fender Jaguar's have seen somewhat of a revival due, in no small part, to the anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind (Kurt loved the Fender Jag!). The Modern Player Jaguar is a stripped down version of the classic guitar with powerful MP-90 pickups on board a pickguard free mahogany body. The guitar is completed with a maple neck, rosewood fretboard, three way toggle pickup switching, Jazz-Bass style control knobs and vintage style Adjusto-Matic bridge. The Jaguar is avail;able in two-colour charcoal burst, rad transparent and black transparent. Finishing the lineup of guitars, the Modern Player Marauder marks the return of a fabled name from the 1960s Fender catalogue. The Marauder is one of the most unique guitars in the range, with a Modern Player Jazzmaster neck pickup and huge sounding Fender Triplebucker bridge pickup. A koto body, C shaped maple neck, rosewood fretboard and five way pickup switching, give this guitar, available in black and lake placid blue, an incredible sound and feel. Three bass guitars are also available - the Modern Player Telecaster Bass, Modern Player Jazz Bass and Modern Player Jaguar Bass.
