Went to Guitar Center this morning to return an item. On the used rack was a MIM Player Tele. Several people picked it up, read the tag, and put it back. The tag said, "not available for pickup until 2/18/2021." When I had the chance, I checked it out and took it over to a Deluxe Reverb to plug in. It was very nice. A 2019 model in rose gold, with no wear, crack or damage. It is light weight and but needs the bridge intonation set. I loved the tone and the guitar has lots of spank. Even though I havent played the new Player series pickups before, I had to have it. Taking it to the counter, I asked the salesman to put it on lay away. He said, "I'll go get the case." "It comes with a case? What is it, a gig bag?" He smiled. A minute later he returned with a hard shell, rectangular tweed case that looked as new as the guitar. My jaw dropped. He said the guitar was just traded in this morning, an hour before I got there. Next Thursday I pick my new rose gold, 2019 Player MIM Tele.
