    Hello everyone!
    I've always had guitars with humbuckers, and I used to play a Greg Bennett Ultramatic with Seymour Duncan. I hadn't played for some time, and my guitar remained for few years closed in it's case.
    For some time now my passion for guitar has returned, and yesterday I decided to satisfy a desire that I always had: I bought my first Telecaster!
    At first I was thinking about a Squier Affinity series, I had found a good ex-demo in a local shop but it was blown away.
    After that, I ran into this in a small local shop, new, and I couldn't resist ;)
    It should be a 2020 Special Edition Player Series in Lake Placid Blue, the color is not easy to photograph, but it's amazing in my opinion!
    Sorry for the poor quality photos:(

    Very nice. There was Special limited edition Baja 50s in Lake Placid blue in 2015 I think and I had one. Lovely guitar.

    Is there anything else about this FSR that is different from a stock Player? Seems odd that Fender would do an FSR LPB when Tidepool is so close. I have a LPB Tele so it’s fine by me.

    Beautiful & congrats.

    It does seem a little odd that they would make this SE, given the standard Tidepool Player version. But, oh well. They're both awesome colors, very similar.
