Custom Shop Inspired Design
Designed by Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Chris Fleming, the Classic Player Baja Telecaster features a solid Ash body with an attractive blonde gloss finish, delivering both classic looks and a vibrant, colourful sound. The Maple neck features a soft "V" profile and Maple fingerboard with a 9.5" radius, giving it a fast and comfortable feel that's sure to satisfy most any player.
Custom Vintage Style Pickups
The guitar features a Custom Shop Vintage-Style Tele pickup in the bridge position and a Custom Shop "Twisted" Single Coil Tele pickup in the neck position. These produce a distinctive vintage tone perfect for lovers of classic rock styles, but well suited to a wide range of genres.
Four Way Pickup Selector
The pickup switch features a special fourth position in addition to the standard three-way switching found on most Telecasters. Position 1 selects the bridge pickup, position 2 combines both pickups in parallel, and position 3 engages the neck pickup only. The added fourth position combines both pickups in series, delivering a thicker tone similar to that of a humbucker, but with all of the bright top-end character of a single coil pickup.
S-1™ Auxiliary Switching
The Classic Player Baja Telecaster also features Fender's innovative S-1™ switch for added tonal versatility. Built into the Volume control, this discreet push switch affects the pickup selector's positions two and four, with positions one and three remaining unaffected. When the pickups are combined either in series or parallel, the S-1™ switch introduces out-of-phase circuitry, producing a thinner and more hollow tone, similar to that found in funk music and early electric blues.
