    Wow! That's a great deal, and on a color that's better than any of the regular offerings. I think I sold my red and green ones with PF boards for $500. But, even if I could afford to buy one of these, being in Hawaii, I'm a second class citizen, and I'm treated like I'm in a third world country, 'cause Adorama won't ship here.

    In the last 2 years I got a p/s tele & p/s hss strat.
    'cept both are black on black with maple f/b.
    Seriously good guitars. Both of them.
    Both needed minor bs.
    1-2 fret ends felt just a bit sharp to me.
    About 15-20 seconds with a emery stick fixed that right up.
    And of course I had to give both a set-up.
    Shoot... can't count on the stores to get it right.
    The tele does have a little beefier feeling neck even though they're both 22 fret modern c necks.
    Go figure

    Congrats I'm sure you'll love it. I've never dealt with Adorama before but thats a killer deal. I have a tidepool PS strat that feels effortless to play and the pickups are amazing.

    I got the same one from Adorama and I love it! It feels, looks and sounds really good! I put a single ply black pickguard on mine. The Players are a no brainer. I have a Player Stratocaster and Telecaster and both of them are quality instruments. Screenshot_20210627-121323-893.png

    If it's new it's a great deal, they have a white one at the same price too but it has a chip & missing knob

    Does this string/neck pup alignment bother anyone else?

    That's horrendous. It would definitely bother me.

    Simple adjustment.
    Wouldn't bother me at all.
    About a 30 second fix

    That looks great, @T-Rey! Did all the screw holes on the one ply black line up and if so what brand and where'd you get if you don't mind sharing? Asking for a friend. ;)
