    I have two Telecasters up for sale or trade on FB Marketplace - an MIC Modern Player Thinline Deluxe P90, and a Partscaster Tele with heavy relic. Somebody just offered me a '93 Anniversary Tele - double bound with a neck humbucker and split coil - for my two Teles and $150 in cash.

    So I guess I'm looking for two things - first, more information about this guitar. I can't find much about it. Secondly, seeing if people think it's a good trade. I do like these guitars alright, but I have an outstanding Les Paul and Strat, so these "okay" Teles don't get very much play. So what do you think? Is it worth 2 cheaper Telecasters plus $150?

    The MIJ Tele for trade:

    Yeah, it's been routed out for a humbucker, they were not routed for hunbuckers at the factory.

    Okay, so here's the real question - if I make this trade and decide the guitar isn't quite right for me, how much has the humbucker lowered the value of the guitar? Obviously, it doesn't matter if it's awesome, but I want to make sure I can flip it again if needed.

    And how about if I throw a P-Rail in the neck position instead? THAT would make a heckuva player!
