    Hello all. Pardon my newness to this. How do I know if my 2017 Fender Modern Player Telecaster is a plus or not? Or are they the same? Also, I really love the neck pickup for clean tone. Are these neck pickups a certain model? Does anyone know what they are? Also, are they the same neck pickup in all the years if I were to buy another year Fender Modern Player Telecaster?

    Doesn't the Plus have three pickups?

    I don’t have your answers but these guys will. Welcome to TDPRI. You’re the Facebook guy, correct?

    If it's the guitar on the right in your profile picture, it is a Plus.

    Modern Player Tele Plus has 3 pickups, with a humbucker in the bridge. The Modern Player Tele has 2 P-90 pickups and is semi-hollow.

    The pickups are specific to that guitar, so yes, if you bought another one you would get the same pickups.

    Welcome to TDPRI! And enjoy your Modern Player Tele Plus. I just got one less than a week ago and I'm really digging it.

    I've just learned that apparently that's what makes it a plus. Lol
    Who would've thought?

    I just wanted to be sure that if I bought a used one from an earlier year that it will sound the same. I love it that much. There's something about it. I'm in love with this thing.
