    Wasting time in GC this morning and spied this on the wall. Brand new Player Tele in Burgundy Mist/maple marked down to $549. I'm trying to pay off my GC card or it would have come home with me.

    saw one of those at G.C. yesterday, there are a few SE Fender Player series guitars on sale thru the end of October. (also on Musiciansfr... btw)

    If G.C. had given me a better offer on a trade-in yesterday I would have had a NGD too!

    That's a beauty. I haven't GAS'd in awhile, but there's an LTD Explorer in NJ that I want. But I can't get out there until the weekend.

    Though, if I had any brains ... today would have been a perfect day to run out to NJ. No traffic. Argh !!!

    Is that Burgundy Mist or the new color Penny?

    There's one at our local GC. I had never seen one in that color. Adorama is been selling the LPB ones for $549 as well.

    FWIW I also regularly see Sam Ash selling Fender Player series b-stock in the 500-550 range on reVerb & Eb*y - I bought my Buttercream Jazz Bass for $544 shipped 2 day with tax from them and it arrived in the original packaging with all the tags etx. not a flaw to be found on it.

    (I think it was the last on the pallet and a had a SELL LAST sticker on it.)

    Apparently that's an FSR, 'cause that color isn't shown on Fender's website. MF has it listed at $575. It's too bad that the Player Tele isn't available with a PF board, only maple. Otherwise, I might be tempted to sell my CVC Tele and buy the Player Tele.

    You should just get it and then work on paying off the card. Sounds like a great plan.

    After seeing one in person over the weekend I could not pass this Player Strat in Shell Pink up - just didn't want the floor model

    it is included in the Roctober sale too, - GC had the best online price MF matched it (same company) I'm going to sell off a few Squiers to make up the $ but it's soooooooooooooooooooo worth it. I'll do a proper thread of my own and stop hijacking this one.

    Nothing to hijack here, I had no real intention of buying the Tele but it sure was nice.
