    Well, it is really clean and ultimately was my only option. The MP (#3) cancelled and never responded to my request for a daytime meet so that I could see it in daylight. Oh, and it was a parking lot meet. I figured I can probably get close to getting what I paid if I find an MP and sell this one. I still want to see one.

    Guitarmageddon, I appreciate that advice. I meant that I liked the feel of the neck dimensionally...not from a setup standpoint.

    Guitarmageddon- "jerk"? I absolutely did NOT take it that way. I appreciate all the advice. And, I completely understand what you are saying about the part of "feel" that can be remedied. I always send a guitar to the tech I use when I get it so he can check the frets, action, fret ends, neck, etc. Well, after playing around with it a bit...lol.

    Good move on the Player Series. Mine was great . It needed a tiny bit of fretwork. I just finished the ends and polished the frets. Amazing guitar for the money.

    I was going to say #1 but not if you have to wait a month and a half. The Modern Player would be my last choice because they remind me too much of Squiers.

    I'd say play them all and see which one you like the best.
