My favorite guitar is a Telecaster. I own and love dozens of different guitars, but I always come back to the Tele. I’m primarily a jazz, blues, and classic rock player, and the Tele covers all those bases quite well. I had a chance to play a new Fender Road Worn Player Telecaster, and I’m really speechless with how good this guitar is.
One of my favorite recent guitars is the Fender Road Worn 50’s Telecaster, and the new Player version has a lot to offer as well, not the least of which is the Seymour Duncan ’59 pickup in the neck. I primarily use the neck pickup in my other Teles, and I’m glad to see such a quality Humbucker as an option. One thing I will emphasize is that it is time to do away with the stigma of the MIM label. Mexican-made Fenders are excellent guitars these days, and the Road Worn Player Tele is no exception.
