The Fender Telecaster is an icon of the guitar world. As the first mass-produced solid-body electric guitar, the Telecaster has appeared on countless records since the late ‘40s - and its tone has helped shape the very fabric of modern guitar music. So, you’d be forgiven for thinking that getting hold of a great Telecaster on a budget would be a tall order - but with Musician’s Friend knocking a huge $130 off this Limited Edition Plus Top Fender Player Telecaster, a stunning example of a Tele is within easy reach.

Fender’s Player Series has set a formidable benchmark for mid-range electric guitars, and for the money, there aren’t many guitars that can boast the same level of quality, playability and wide-ranging popularity. One of the Player Tele’s most enticing features - besides the pickups - is the super comfortable 9.5” fingerboard radius. This enables you to bend strings without fear of choking out, while still maintaining the soft rounded edges of the original Tele.

This particular Player Telecaster is a Plus Top model, so the introduction of a flame maple veneer visually takes this guitar to the next level. Finished in a spectacular Blue Burst which is exclusive to Musician’s Friend, we think this is one of the best Fender Telecasters available right now.

If you’re looking for more bargain acoustics, electrics or guitar accessories, you can find them on our Black Friday guitar deals page.
