    It’s a 2021 Player. I got a really really good deal. I couldn’t pass it up. I like the color a lot. It needs a good set-up though.

    I’ll also be changing the pick guard to white.. I think.. the black is starting to grow on me a little. No hurry for that though.

    Love the shade of blue with the pickguard and pickups/knobs color combo. I would not change it. Looks awesome.

    I think I’ll leave it alone. At least for awhile. The blue is actually a bit lighter in real life. It looks darker in the picture.

    +1.. there's a thread about a Tele just like this one, and owner changed the guard to parchment. I think this contrast is cool.

    Are beveled magnets normal on a Player ? I don’t remember noticing it on other ones.

    Nice guitar. The pickups on my SSS Players Strat are beveled.

    I bought a Squier Affinity almost a year ago and have been playing that non-stop (after fitting it with a loaded pickguard from what I assume was a Player). So after arranging to have my rental bond returned to me, I made the step to buying my first $1K+ ($AU, $800US) guitar.

    Oops. Wrong photo.

    I should have bought a "real" Fender sooner, but I think I picked the right time to get one now.

    The color combination is just superb. Very very nice looking Strat. HNGD!

    P.S.
    I'd surely keep the black pickguard
