What? 250 bucks?
Can't help with your question, but let me say it is an awesome deal!
Yeah, I would pull that trigger at $250. Worst case, re-sell it for $400 and everybody is happy.
Great deal! Congrats!!
Nice guitar. But there is no guarantee what pickups are in there. I know it sounds ludicrous but Telecaster owners are famously known for swapping pickups with regularity.
Congratulations...she is very pretty!!
Yeah, that's a veneer and the wood underneath can be identified by checking the pocket. Poplar or more likely, alder. Now, the back could be an alder (or maybe a plain maple) veneer - that's how sandwich bodies were done. No, it won't be ash.
Congrats on a VERY score.
That's a great looking Tele you've got ther.
Pawnshops can be Goldmines, but you have to put in the time and energy to find the killer deals.
There's gotta be a TON of pawnshops in the area you live in.
I bet there's still a whole lot of other deals to be found in those pawnshops.
Wow, pawn shops in my area are notoriously greedy. Unreal deal, congrats. She’s a beauty.
I’ve bought a rosewood tele from a pawnshop and it worked out great for me! I’ve also bought les Paul customs that did not! I think it all depends on the owners knowledge of certain models because there is only so much research they are probably willing to do especially if it’s not a passion for them!
Most pawn shops I find have a great selection of $200 Austin and Gio guitars. Congrats on the great score!
The different bridges might affect the tone, too. Three-saddle bridges often seem twangier.
I have that same guitar. It is in my avatar. Fender MIM FSR aged cherry plus top.
Really great looking and playing. I got it new from Adorama on sale for $449. At $250 you got a great deal on it.
I have replaced the stock ceramics with Fender Original Vintage pickups.
So the stock pickups are ceramic pickups then? Next time I have the strings off, I'm going to lift up the bridge so I can see the pickup. Is there a way I can tell if it's the original pickup or not?
I actually am liking the different sound I get from it so far. Having my CVC be twangy (and not as friendly with a lot of OD) and the MIM a little warmer (and much fuller and better with over drive) gives each guitar a unique purpose, and justifies keeping them both!
Anybody that works in retail has to learn that lesson, especially if they are more occupied with their phone or a co-worker.
Congrats on a beautiful Tele for a deal !
I have yet to run across one of those mythical "pawn shop" bargains. I blame the internet for killing that dream. They seem to know precisely what everything is worth, and they jack in 20 percent on top of it.
Good for you.
Congratulations on your score! And I'm glad the manager is a man of his word.
It certainly did for my Black Paisley FSR, which is the exact same guitar minus the cosmetics. I went with a Wilkenson compensated and I'm quite happy with it.
