    Looking at the width of the 12 fret markers it looks like something from China

    I think you're mis-reading that Red.....I see "MnRul Rin"......
    I Googled that, but all that came up was some Asian marital aid thing. :(
    I'd steer clear if it was me.

    You never said what the price was......
    There's LOTS of great budget Tele-styles available, although I don't know what shipping to Israel is like.

    Don’t be so quick to write it off. Go play it first. Honestly a lot of the guys here build guitars. And modify and the whole 9 yards.

    honestly get that you can find/ afford. And I’m positive with the help and guidance of the guys here. They can help you get any guitar you get, up and playing at its best capabilities.

    I loved Israel. Would love to get the chance to go back sometime

    Just to be accurate, that is not a Telecaster.

    You are all wrong. It says Mandril Rio. It’s a very famous brand in and near the northern Canadian islands. Famous endorsers are Benvolio Raviolio- guitarist from the famous “Fabulous Breathairians” and Skylar Oglvie, lead singer from BCB (Baboon Canoe Brothers)- he only played guitar occasionally, especially on their later albums “Rock of the Tiger Den” and “Deleted Coda.” Look it up.
