    Greetings! I have been playing an old 94 Peavey Predator strat clone for a while now but have always wanted a Fender. Well today I just picked up my 2020 Fender Player hss strat in aged cherry with maple neck. It was a birthday present to myself. I have heard nothing but good reports online about this series of Fender guitars. I'm an older guy but just an intermediate player at best. I look forward to reading these forums and maybe learning something...

    Welcome aboard. How about a photo of your new guitar. We love gear photos here. By the way, there are a lot of 'senior' members on Strat-Talk.

    I should apologize.
    When you said new/old I mistakenly interpreted this to mean you were returning to the forum after an absence...an error for which I humbly seek your forgiveness.

    Now please permit me to explain; Infrequently someone will post an article or a news story that always begins "A Florida Man..."

    They are most entertaining. Not all of them are ridicule, but most focus on the more ingenious of ... no, that's not true...

    They are all pretty much stories about some guy in Florida who has done something really dumb, usually involving law enforcement.

    They're pretty funny. I feel sorry for the poor person who signs up as Florida Man because he or she will be in for...

    Welcome.

    70 is just late middle age nowadays.

    Welcome to Strat-Talk. Your guitar sounds very nice!

    BTW, I'm one of the bunch of old guys. I turned 70 yesterday.
