I'm partial as I own a similar 2004 MIM Standard Tele, and it is a very good, solid player. I think $425 is a good ask. Why can't a good import appreciate a little in value? ( are US-made guitars the only ones that get to do this?) Just bringing this up as new MIM Strats and Teles are $600-700 right? Seems like $425 is fair, maybe down to $400. It was a value then, and still a value today. Just an opinion.
