Distinctive Tele® Style
The unconventional Telecaster fan will appreciate the unconventional style of the Classic Player Baja Telecaster. Designed by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Chris Fleming, it looks like a traditional Tele®, but boasts several mods that transform it into a full-voiced true Classic Player, such as Custom Shop-designed pickups, special tone circuitry and switching, and more.
Features
  • Ash body
  • Custom Shop-designed Twisted Tele® single-coil neck pickup
  • Custom Shop-designed Vintage-Style Tele single-coil bridge pickup
  • Special four-way pickup switch (offers both pickups in series in addition to standard parallel)
  • S-1™ switch for even more tonal options
  • American Vintage string-through-body Telecaster bridge with three brass saddles
  • Highlights

    Four-Way Pickup Switching
    Four-Way Pickup Switching

    The Classic Player Baja Tele's four-way pickup switch adds a fourth tonal variation to the standard Tele complement. Position four combines the neck and bridge pickups in series for fatter tone and higher output, creating raw rocking tone.

    S-1™ Switch
    S-1™ Switch

    For even more tonal versatility, pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications. On this special Telecaster model, the S-1 switch is built into the volume control knob and changes the pickup wiring from in-phase to out-of-phase when both pickups are on.

    This already-distinctive Classic Player Telecaster model also features a specially voiced Twisted Tele® neck pickup and stinging custom bridge pickup, both from the very best of our best, the Fender Custom Shop.

    "Soft V" Neck Profile
    "Soft V" Neck Profile

    The "soft V" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) on this instrument has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel that takes the more pronounced sharpness of a ’50s "V" profile and "softens" it into a somewhat more rounded shape. Ideal for players with larger hands whose thumb extends over the edge of the fingerboard.

    Three-Saddle American Vintage Telecaster Bridge
    Three-Saddle American Vintage Telecaster Bridge

    With authentic design and performance that evokes the Telecasters of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, this model features an American Vintage telecaster bridge with three saddles.
