    I used to have one of those 50th Anniversary 3-pickup MIJ Teles. I think at $480 it's priced appropriately and is a decent deal. I bought several years ago for $375 with no case or gig bag and thought I got a great deal. Was a really nice Tele, great fit and finish like you'd expect from an MIJ/CIJ Fender, but the stock pickups sucked (think ,weak sounding); which has pretty much what I've experienced from every Fender Japan guitar I've ever had be it a Strat or Tele that had the standard pickups in them. There are MIJ/CIJ models that I do have MIA-made Fender pickups into them from the factory, but ZI've never had one of those. Just a few MIJ/CIJ Teles, a Strat and a 50's Precision (slab) bass.

    MIJ/CIJ Fenders for whatever reason seem to be going for around $600+ these days. MIJ '62 Custom Teles go for more.
