my wife snapped this off TM for me for $650. seemed a really good price. is this what they used to cost before things went silly?

pros: bone nut and seems to be set up alright
cons: paint crack from neck pocket, warped pickguard. seems it went through some big humidity changes

not really sure what it is other than a 2002 mexican fender
the truss rod access is at the base of the neck and the neck is chunkier than a modern C
is it a classic player 50s or 60s?

all around I'm super stoked. been playing the shadows

(sorry bad photo)

Classic Series ‘50s. I had an Esquire from the same line ages ago. And the ‘60s Tele. Great guitars—that’s an excellent price too.

Not with the bloody hours I put into spraying Strummer's Tele with the salmonest pink you ever did see.
