Amazon has a few Fender Player Plus models on sale. In some cases they're less expensive than the standard player line. So far I've found:

Player Plus Nashville Telecaster (Opal Spark) [amazon.com] for $799.49 (MSRP $1,129.99) Expired, now $992.07

Player Plus Nashville Telecaster (Aged Candy Apple Red) [amazon.com] for $855.13 (MSRP $1,129.99) NLA

Fender Player Plus Telecaster (Cosmic Jade) [amazon.com] for $776.10 (MSRP $1099.99) Expired, now $1099.99

Fender Player Plus Telecaster (3-Color Sunburst) [amazon.com] for $752.49 (MSRP $1099.99) -Now $714.87 > now $681.89

Fender Player Plus Stratocaster (Opal Spark) [amazon.com] for $815.04 (MSRP $1099.99) NLA

The Player Plus series differs from the Player series in that the guitars have:
  • Noiseless pickups
  • Locking tuners
  • 12" neck radius
  • Rolled fret edges
For me, these are all advantages. However, fans of vintage Fender guitars -- especially models with 7.5" radius necks -- might not like the modern neck of the Player Plus series.

I'm 99% sure that I've missed a few Player Plus models that are also on sale. Kindly leave a comment if you've found additional ones.

These guitars shipped and sold by Amazon, with Amazon customer service.

since this happens "all the time" according to you, why don't you post some friend's numbers so we can all get artist pricing
the Player series is irrelevant to this post since these are all Player Plus models.

the "history" is pretty short considering these models have been available for about a year. SD shows one Player Plus post in the same price range.

i'm still waiting for you to show how these deals happen "all the time," as you've said. for some reason, you won't or can't do that.
12" radius neck is definitely a selling point for those that prefer a modern feel. there are some other differentiators, some objectively better and others that are subjective. they include:


Modern C neck: definitely a subjective preference
Rolled frets: objectively a nicer feature and requires more labor
Locking tuners: certainly more expensive and most find them useful for string changes
Noiseless pickups: some people find them a bit flat, while others think they sound good. most think that the noiseless pickups on the American Ultra series are better.
Push-pull pot: on the Player Plus Strat it adds the neck pickup to the first and second positions, while on the Player Plus Tele is puts the two pickups in series. it's never bad to have more sound options.
Satin fingerboard finish: the Player finish is gloss, while Player Plus is satin. this one is subjective.
USA string trees: these are better than the Mexican string trees on the Player
Block saddles: these are better than the bent saddles on the Player
Gig bag: this is include with the Player Plus and not the Player


i'm probably missing a few things, but those are the Player Plus vs. Player differences i can remember.

Just OK deal. You can call Musician's Friend basically anytime and get 15-20% off plus 8% back in points.

The original Nashville tele is fantastic, so I imagine the player plus version is just as good.

MF kept giving me issues claiming they are out of stock even though they aren't. They offered half the discount. I wanted to use my MF rewards but not worth it.

If I have a 1-time coupon for 20% (tend to get them a couple of times per year) it just requires a 5-minute chat w/ MF to get it applied to supposedly excluded Fender (or other) products. I've done similar with the generic 15% coupons as well. They're not keen on doing it with open-box though, which often end up being more than the brand new gear with the discount.

These "noiseless" pickups don't sound good to me. It is like having a cheap noise gate on the guitar. Sounds brighter but higher harmonics are cut off or muted so it feels like synthesized sound. As it is, the MIM body is lacking a bit in harmonics, so the overall effect sounds a bit dead. But it may also be because I am used to an Ameican Standard sound. I also had a MIM and tried out a lot of different pickups. Didn't like any of them. Yes, the standard AmStrat has issues with noise, steep attenuation when bending, etc., but the tone… so you deal with it.

i kept reading MF as something that sounds like motherfather instead of Musician's Friend :p

Quote from unknownuser5 :
Meh deal you get much better discount on these guitars all the time. Retail price is a gimmick of Amazon.
where are these "all the time" deals? a quick look at Guitar Center, Sweetwater, and Musician's Friend show them at MSRP. i don't know how a manufacturer setting a price is an Amazon gimmick, but okay....

You don't buy from these shops at MSRP. You call them and ask for discount or if you have friends who can get you access to artist pricing then you use that.
