    I don't see any Classic Player Stratocaster. Just necks for them. Did Fender discontinue them?

    No. They still make those in new colors.

    I would still prefer the Road Worn 60's Strat in Olympic White but that looks unavailable too. I hate what Fender does.

    Models come and models go.
    Get them while you can.

    Actually they did. For about a year, then brought them back under the Vintera line.

    As for the Classic Player, they are now the Vintera Modified series.

    The Road Worn Series was replaced by the Vintera Road Worn in mid/late 2020.
