It's a basswood or poplar body, right? I wouldn't pay more than $200.
I think by that point they were using Alder bodies in Mexico.
But either way, you're right, it's way overpriced for a 15 year old MIM Tele. I would probably offer $300-$350.
I answered the post above with the red tele pic. He edited but said it's a '99.
I don't currently own any MIM standard Teles but have had a few over the years. Generally very good guitars and very good value. Some can be on the heavy side though.
I actually think 2004/5 are among the most desirable because they had alder bodies by then and the pickups were still alnico. In 2006 they went to hotter "modern" ceramic pickups that I do not like nearly as much. Blue Agave is one of the nicest "modern" colors Fender has offered IMO. Sort of like a blend of Lake Placid Blue and Ice Blue Metallic, yet different.
So.....I agree that the price of that one the OP linked seems a bit high, but if it is in excellent condition, and if one really wanted that particular color that is no longer available, I might be tempted to buy it. Maybe overpriced, but still not a huge amount of money for a good guitar if the intent is to keep it for awhile.
edit: missed the point that it has 64 vintage pickups assuming they are Fender 64's, that's an upgrade worth some $. Wonder if the owner still has original pickups and pickguard? I personally prefer the look of a plain 3 ply pickguard - especially parchment or mint 3ply.
As stated several times already, it’s Agave Blue. I had one. Had a Strat that color as well. They were $350 new at the time. I wouldn’t pay more than $275 and that’s if it’s in super great condition and you really have to have that color. They are nice guitars but again, were only $350 new. It’s a Mexican Standard. $550? No way, you can buy a brand new Player (the newer, better version) for $150 more.
Does anyone know if Agave Blue was used 2006-? Would like to find one with Medium Jumbos
Think I found my answer, discontinued in 2006. Such a great color!
Than is a ‘95 MIM what color would this be?
