    No high frets, no fret sprout, no buzzing. Pickups are very quiet for SCs. So far - so good!

    Okay, I'm in!

    $ 499.99 shipped is a no brainer.

    I played several Telecasters the past few days and the Players Tele sounded and felt the best to me out of all of them, the American Performer, the American Pro (etc).

    LPB Player Tele all the way! :thumb:

    Thanks @vid1900 !

    By my count that's now 7 of us that are so budget-savvy (or weak-willed) that we couldn't pass up this deal. 5 strats and 2 teles. Adorama should send @vid1900 a nice commission check!:D

    Funny - I got my first LPB ('09 MIM standard tele) by serendipity. Back in the wake of the 2008 crash, GC had something called "Fender Friday" wherein they had a deal on a Fender each Friday. I needed at tele, so when they offered an arctic white MIM standard with an Apple iPod Shuffle for $299 it was a no-brainer. However, they quickly ran out of the arctic white, so when I called, the salesperson offered me any color with any fretboard. Panicked, I said "LPB with maple" and the rest is history. I now have three LPB Fenders!

    You bastages! I just knew I shouldn't have checked this forum.

    Assimilated, another LPB Strat outgoing. That Line6 is gonna have to wait.

    Now hopefully it's not a Lake Placid Teal. :D

    Tom Petty was right as rain about "the waiting"!

    I'm having Lake Placid Blue withdrawal already.

    Oh, I forgot to report. My new LPB Tele is in transit and due for arrival here on Wednesday, 11/13. That is, of course, if it hasn't already been delivered to vid1900. I have already bought a new case for it, too!

    This sale is killing me. I was just about to pull the trigger on one (lpb is my favorite colour) but I found a killer deal on a Vintera 50s Strat for the same price, so had to go with that one. Really tempted to get a second strat though.

    I always buy a new, but inexpensive hard case for any new guitar primarily for safe storage. I buy one particular style for Teles that works well. It is from Amazon and sells for around $50. It looks like this:
