Several years ago Fender created a triple pickup tele set up with 3 Nocaster Custom shop pickups. Anyone ever buy one of these? I had a Nashville tele w/ 3 pups but the model I am looking for feedback on is different than the Nashville tele. thx, D.

Yes, it's called a "Strat". :-)<br /> <br /> Actually I did have a Nashville Deluxe Power Tele several years ago. I wouldn't mind having one of those Teles with the 3 Nocaster Custom shop pickups. It might cure my gas for a hardtail Strat.

I've had a couple...they were awesome guitars, but I have to admit.... due to my picking technique, i found that the middle pickup just got in my way...<br /> <br /> one of the reasons I don't own a strat

eye bought one from reverb,it was a demo,price was reasonable,plays nice, was setup well,kinda a cross between a strat and a tele[5 way strat switching,eye think the mid pickup is wired out of phase, for an almost strat like quack effect] but still has tele twang.

My favorite electric is a 3 pup Tele that I put together from eBay parts. It's got a swamp ash body, 3 saddle bridge, stewmac bridge pup, Japanese fender middle, and SD alnico II neck pup. The neck is from a Johnson refretted with big frets and a bone nut. I've probably had 10 or so different pups on it over the years, this combo has lasted 3 years or so.

Eye believe the origial poster [dbluesband] is asking about a mim classic player triple tele[the one eye purchased from reverb.com] it was a special run designed by a custom shop dude[ as was the famous baja tele[got one of those also]. eye do not think "db" was asking about a nasville or any other 3 pu tele.

Yep Charente. That is the one. Kind of evil looking don't you think?

"Kind of evil looking don't you think?"<br /> <br /> I like it - a lot.

I have a modern player tele. I installed a tele vintage noiseless in the neck and a strat vintage noiseless in the middle and bridge. Great sounding and playing guitar even if it does sound mainly like a strat.

So I went out to Reverb.com and saw a bunch of these. And , in a fit of GAS, I pulled the trigger and I bought one yesterday. Will review when i get it from the seller.

I just purchased the 2016 Deluxe Nashville Tele which has 3 pickups in it. 2 tele pickups and a middle strat pickup. To me it sounds like a freaking strat, which is great. The only reason I didn't get a strat is because I don't care for the bridges on the MIM strats, they have a zinc block and fender doesn't make a matching steel block, nor does anyone else to fender spec. Which is retarded. <br /> <br /> At any rate, I'm banking on this guitar as a noiseless workhorse. I feel like the bridge pickup might be kind of weak, and not a grunting as tele but when I get the guitar I'll be sure to delineate how it sounds.

I got the Fender Classic Player Triple Tele today. Real nice axe! The 3 pickups sound great. The neck, not quite as beefy as i would have liked, is very play-able. Shiny black body looks very industrial w/the 3 Nocaster pickups. 5-way switch allows me to get the "quack tone" in positions 2 and 4. Played it for about 1/2 hour today. No issues. Another Tele joins the herd. Got a gig Sunday and can't wait to crank it up in the band.

Got a Nashville B-Bender Tele. Nice playing and sounding guitar. Heavy because of the Bender plate (you can get an aluminum plate to reduce weight by about 12 oz if desired). Haven't tried the bender much yet. Not sure I'm coordinated enough!

I *believe* the pickups were all 3 Nocaster bridges.

"I *believe* the pickups were all 3 Nocaster bridges."<br /> <br /> Right. The idea is that it's what someone in the 50's might have done to mod a Tele to be like a Strat.<br />

Yes. They all appear to be 3 Nocaster bridge pickups in the Fender Classic Player Triple Tele I have. They are intense. I want to do a mod to have a switch to turn all of them on at once. Anybody have a schematic? Merry Xmas!!
