    anybody have one? You like? Cuz I've got some major gas, and I think that's the cure.

    Not a player series, but I've got an HH Blacktop Tele that I love. It's my go to rock machine.

    I have the exact same Tele FMT with SD Pearly Gates bridge and neck Humbucker. The only thing Telecaster about this guitar is its basic shape. Other than that, it has a set neck, Flamed Maple Top, Amber colored sides, back, neck and tuner head with the word Fender on it. It also has a contoured body making it comfortable and lighter than a standard Tele. It also has coil split for Humbuckers. I find it to be the finest Telecaster that I own, which I know is not universally agreed. But its playability, tone variability, and lighter weight really fit my guitar preferences nicely. Also, it is a real bargain!

    I've owned at least a dozen of those setneck Teles and they are wonderful.

    Mine is not a Player series but a Squier HH Contemporary and I love it. Great player for sure.

    I have checked out many demos of the Player HH tele.

    I see why you are gassing for one.

    Those Alnico II humbuckers they put in there sound incredible. Plus, you can split them. AND, with the standard hardtail bridge, you don't have to worry about the bridge/saddle problems on the regular Player Telecasters that Fender is sorting out.

    And 22 frets!

    The Tidepool/maple HH is the devil. :sneaky:

    The player is the MIM Std with one more fret and A5 [I stand corrected - A2. Quite the tight bass on them though.] pickups.

    You won't ever need another Tele and if it doesn't cure your GAS, you can call me Ratface ;)

    Edit; wanting another Tele down the line is a different matte, of course. The Players come in a lot of nice finishes :D

    The HH Player he is referring to definitely has the Alnico 2 pickups. And they sound killer IMO in an inherently brighter guitar


    FEATURES
    • Gloss-finish solid alder body
    • 25.5"-scale maple neck with 22-fret, 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard
    • Dual Fender Player Series Alnico 2 humbuckers with coil split on push/pull tone pots
    • Thru-body strung 6-saddle bridge with bent steel saddles, die-cast sealed tuners
    Check out this demo video.........

    I am looking at one for sale locally right now. It has 22 frets so I believe it is a player but the control plate is reversed? Did they ever come from the factory that way?

    I don't think any of the Player Tele's come that way stock.

    The model that does is the FSR Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Telecaster that was done for GC and Musicians Friend, but that one is a 21 fret guitar.

    These two......

    I've been looking at Telecasters again.

    WAY to much! :oops:
