    Keep running! Have you tried looking at the Thomman website for a new guitar?

    Any time someone says they have a legit USA Tele they are willing to sell for half price, you have two choices: Run, or bend over and get ready. Fake-o-caster.

    As previously noted not highly likely it is a Fender product of any kind. Even the Squier stuff maintains a relation to the correct head shape. I recommend as others have to wait until you have a better choice. This would be a waste of good money for something worth less than a bad Squier.

    Very interesting price for that 2nd link guitar! What do you think if I buy one of these and put some quality pickups will it sound like mexican tele ? Or there are many things to do? Im newbie for this but very interested

    I honestly don't know Grig, I am happy playing my Affinity telecaster with its Squier pickups. Harley Benton are getting a good name as a lower priced guitar..different pickups will make it sound different ..lool

    Grig, if you were looking at a 500 Euro guitar originally you might want to look a bit further up the page than the basic Harley Benton. A decent standard Squier or even better, one of the cv series will get you a nice guitar which is easy to mod down the line if you feel the need.

    Thanks! Looking for squires now. And did you know something about classic player triple telecaster? Found it new for 550$ does it sound like normal tele, I don't like neck pickup position of it...

    $550 is a decent price, if VAT is not an issue for you :)

    I've found the CP Triple Tele to be mostly a "hot Strat" with chunky 2 & 4 position quack, which may or may not be to your liking...Very rock-oriented sound with nice bridge Tele tone, but the neck sound doesn't have that signature mellow roundness to it and overall it's a very aggressive sounding instrument with less classic tone than I'd prefer in a Telecaster. Still, if I had just one guitar to play for a year, I'd probably find it more than sufficient for all kinds of music, and it's very well built.

    And greetings from a (Western) half-Hye, very distant cousin! My grandmother was a post-WWI survivor from Hadjin and my grandfather was from Constantinople.

    Thank you for good information!!!! That is all I want to hear. I like the neck pickup sound of classic tele and won't go for that tripple.

    Wow!!! world is round! Im so happy to meet relatives here.
