Perfect for pummeling musical assaults, the Player Telecaster HH is pure Fender, through and through. The feel, the style and, most importantly, the sound-they're all there, waiting for you to make them whisper or scream for your music. Flexible enough to handle almost anything you can create and durable enough to survive any gig, this workhorse is a trusty sidekick for your musical vision.

Respecting Fender heritage while maintaining innovative spirit, the pair of Player Series humbucking pickups are fat-sounding, yet articulate it's authentic Fender tone with a modern edge. The "Modern C"-shaped maple neck's comfortable contours and smooth finish are ideal for almost any playing style. By adding a 22nd medium jumbo fret to the contemporary 9.5"-radius fingerboard made it easier to express yourself musically. To enhance the traditional twang and bite of a Telecaster, Fender added bent-steel saddles to the string-through-body bridge for precise intonation and to help your sound cut through the mix, sustaining until the sun burns out. Other features include master volume and tone controls, a 3-way pickup switch with barrel tip, 3-ply pickguard, synthetic bone nut, dual-wing string tree, sealed tuning machines and four-bolt "F"-stamped neck plate that marks this instrument as the real deals Fender as it gets.

When you need a guitar that will take anything you can throw at it, stand up, dust itself off and ask for more, reach for the Player Telecaster HH.

"Pleasantly surprised"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This thing is amazing! It sounds and plays fantastic. The only set-up I had to do was to take some of the bow out of the neck. The action, even at the nut, and the intonation were perfect right out of the box. What really pleasantly surprised me was that the tone knob is push-pull. When you pull it up, it coil-taps the pickups, and it's now a single-coil Tele. Wow!! I recommend this guitar to anyone in the market for a fantastic deal.

Sound
The sound is great, what you'd expect from Fender humbuckers or even single coils. No complaints here.

Features
All great components as far as I can see. It's beautiful, comfortable, practical, and it kills! Fender did a good job assembling this set of components. Its individually adjustable saddles are a big plus, and the coil-tap feature is fantastic!

Ease of Use
Whether straight into an amp or through a pedalboard, this guitar is a good-sounding guitar. No real learning curve (unless you've never played before), and it is supremely playable.

Quality
Fit and finish were impeccable, and like most Teles, it's built like a tank. I expect it to way outlast me.

Value
Oh yeah, well worth the price. zZounds makes buying easy, with their zero-interest installment plans. With my income, it's hard to plop down a full-pop purchese price. This guitar is priced competitively with other companies' prices.

zZounds is a great outfit, very accommdating and helpful. I've never dealt with Fender directly, except to register products, even though I have a bunch of their guitars and basses. But I've heard that they're easy to work with, too.

The Wow Factor
It just looks good! It sounds awesome.

Musical Background:
Been playing since the Beatles. I play professionally, at church, at home, wherever.

Musical Style:
Yes.
