Just got this MIM Fender Player Series HSS Stratocaster . I have to say I'm impressed with how well this guitar plays. Serial number starts with 19 so I'm assuming it's a 2019 model? Always been curious about an HSS and what little I've played this one through an amp when I bought it sounded really good. I have been looking and I can't find any blemishes or dings on it. Still has all the plastic covering from the factory. Seems minty fresh. I'm very pleased so far.
