Hi all, I hope this thread is in the right forum. I've been wanting a telecaster for a long time and I think I'm ready for the purchase. I'm in Iceland so guitars are more expensive here then in the US/UK/Europe and thanks to hefty taxes importing isn't really any cheaper. I've been looking for used ones around and found a few but I wanted some advice on whether a new one might be better. So my options are: New: Squier Vintage Modified Special ~ $500 Squier Classic Vibe 50's ~ $560 A new Fender for much more Used: Fender American Standard (2002 or 2003 model) ~ $940 Fender Classic Series '69 Thinline ~ $1.190 (New one costs about $1.400) For reference, importing a $500 guitar would probably cost around $1.000 with shipping, maybe even more! The other option would be to get someone who's coming from abroad to bring it with him so I only have to pay taxes and not shipping. I'm leaning towards the Squier CV50 since the price seems the most reasonable compared to US prices but I wanted some advice whether the Standard or Thinline are worth the price tag (compared to the Squiers). Thanks!
