    Hello Strat-Talk,
    I've just joined the forum recently, and have posted on various threads without saying hello here - so pardon the breach of etiquette. I would like to thank all of the members on this site, because I've found lots of great information here already.

    I'm a thoroughly below average guitar player working to get better. I have a 2006 American Deluxe Strat and recently got a lightly used Player Strat in Tidepool. I have a thing for blue guitars.
    Before buying it, I did a lot of searching about the "Tidepool" color on-line, because I didn't really like the images on the Fender web site. For anyone wondering about this color, it's not nearly as 'green' as it seems on the Fender site. The pictures on Sweetwater are much closer. I would say the color is slightly more green than is shown in these pictures, but just a little.

    Am I wrong, or does this look like a darker version of Ice Blue Metallic?

    I'm impressed with the Player strats. The quality seems very good, and its a bargain used. Now I have to give it a bit of a workout and see how it sounds

    GC has a matching guitar case for it on sale right now. It looks like a powder blue or baby blue to me.

    I would like to possibly get it for the natural finish ash body in my avatar. Haven't decided though.
