    I found a used USA Telecaster B-bender in my local music store for $699.
    It's got some good knocks on it with some chunks missing and looks like it was a road guitar otherwise it plays real nice nice.
    What do you think good deal?

    Yes, that's a GOOD deal, IMO. I have one, but would buy another at that price...here's mine from 96, highly modified. Great guitar. Still one of my "go to" teles.

    Sounds like a horrible deal. Give me the guys phone number so I can contact him and tell him so.

    Do it ... but I'd make sure it is what it is. Check the serial # on fender's customer support web site.
    I'd buy it in a heart beat if I had the cash. Instead, I'm advertising to trade a 2006 high end Gibson SG Standard straight across for a stock Fender B-Bender.

    I need it I need it I need it waaaaaaaaaaa

    Good Luck!

    I remember in the 90s when those came out....

    a music store here had one in stock and I was looking at it. I didn't need one at the time so I told my buddy about it and he went down to buy it and when they brought the stock number up on the computer it came up as an American Standard Telecaster as that's what someone had entered it as so He got the thing for about $600 cash. If I'd have known that it'd be in my stable now.............JH in Va.
