    I'm looking at purchasing a 2012 Jade Pearl Metallic Telecaster, it's in great shape and the seller is willing to let it go for $650. I'm assuming that's a good price. Any pros and cons with this model and year?

    Case included or just the guitar?

    I've got a 2012 American Standard as well I've had it for about 3 years and it's a great guitar. Sounds like a fair price to me but there are other people here to have way more expertise and I do.

    Did they have the broadcaster / twisted tele set in the 2012 model?

    Love those pickups.

    I have that exact model (maple FB) and it is has become my go-to guitar. Best feature is the neck, just fantastic.
