I got a bit of anger (elsewhere) after I said that I felt that the MIM Player series weren't as good as some were making out. The frets and fret ends on my MIM Player series Jaguar were rough. In fact I tried a number of them and found they all suffered to varying degrees. Slight possibility it is the Pau Ferro fingerboard as the (one) maple fingerboard Player Strat I tried felt good (plenty of poly over the fingerboard and frets to smooth the edges I guess?). In the end I bought the least bad/best deal I could, since by this time there were hardly any available to buy in the UK. I spent part of my lock down sorting out the frets, fret ends and rolling the fingerboard edges, sanding the PF and buffing it all up. It plays really well now, but if I hadn't got the confidence to do work like that myself building my avatar guitar, then I wouldn't have bought it. Oddly, my MIM Classic 50s Lacquer Tele was one of my nicest guitars as it came. Admittedly it was 6 months old and bought used, but I don't think the guy who owned did any work on it himself. The neck that my avatar guitar was made with is a MIM too, it hasn't needed a level and crown despite it being sold as a bare neck; I fitted tuners and cut the nut and it plays perfectly (it's a very fat neck, so maybe this helps, especially with regard to truss rod adjustments).
