Player Series Stratocaster HSS

After reading a lot of hype reviews surrounding the player series line I pulled the trigger on a hss Stratocaster. Now, I'll keep this short and succinct. My disappointment has ultimately come from the quality control on the neck where I think Fender could do better. The first thing I noticed was how sharp the frets and fret edges felt. The nut has also been cut quite high which results in an uncomfortable action. These problems are ultimately fixable by taking it for a bit of work to a tech, but on a new guitar I really feel like it needing anything other than a basic setup should be unnecessary. Now I know this is Fender's entry level line but even so, comparatively the workmanship and QC on my $200 Yamaha Pacifica is noticeably better when paying attention to the neck work. That all said - the pickups are wonderful and the finish applied to the body and back of the neck is great. To sum up, I think it's not a bad deal if you're looking for an authentic Stratocaster, just be aware there will more than likely be some TLC required to get the guitar playing to an acceptable standard for most players.
