What is the cheapest Fender Telecaster?
Usually the Fender Player Telecaster
There are several popular series of Fender Telecasters, but the cheapest is almost always going to be the Fender Player Series. Within that series there are several variations that fluctuate in price, but the cheapest option is usually the Player Telecaster with the standard two single coil Tele pickup arrangement.
To find the cheapest Fender Telecaster, you need to focus on the Player series. Without considering used or B-stock items (you plan to buy new), the Player Teles are almost always going to be your best bet.
In the pricing tables below, we've pulled several of the most popular variations of the Player series Teles from major retailers. Sometimes they have limited edition options that are cheaper, but in most cases the Player Tele with two standard single coil pickups are going to be the most affordable.
Player Teles with the HH pickup configuration are a bit more expensive.

This information is intended to function as a price guide and resource and does not necessarily constitute a recommendation or review.
As mentioned, used Telecasters can go for a lot less, depending on the following factors:
- Age/year model
- Series (Player, Performer, American, etc.)
- Seller's discretion
Typically we recommend eBay and Reverb for used guitars, so you can check there if you want to try and snag a better deal. It's likely that in used markets, Player series Telecasters are still going to be your best bet.
They're consistently the most affordable Fender Telecaster on the market.
