I purchased the Tidepool Fender Player Telecaster for my daughter from Sam Ash Memorial day weekend. I was able to work with a couple Sam Ash sales reps who were able to get me a really great deal on the guitar. The price was unbeatable and with 36 months 0% financing on the Sam Ash card buying it was a no brainer. When the guitar arrived my daughter unboxed it and the instrument was absolutely beautiful and flawless. She tuned it up and the set up was perfect. I would definitely recommend the Fender Player Series for anyone wanting a quality instrument without spending a fortune, they sound great.
