Noticed a lot of Player Telecasters but not a lot of Vinteras from the mid Atlantic regions up through New England. Been traveling a bit this year and I stop in music stores up the coast and find that Players outnumber Vintera by a wide margin. In fact Ive only seen one Vintera near Boston but nothing down here in Virginia. Call me old fashioned but Id really like to try the Vintage modified and compare to the player. I know the specs are different neck shape, diameter etc... but, there's nothing like feeling the guitar you want to purchase. It seems Fender is pushing the Player and Player plus models right now.
