    Well, that looks like a very nice tele. You will have to play it to see if it feels good to you. Check the frets and see if they are worn out.

    If that is a used usa 62 reissue +_ $1000 or so in us$ would be a ball park guess. Not sure what it would be in your part of the world.

    Wichita is nice.
    Looks like a great guitar. Reminds me of Reggie Young's main Tele.
    How much is the asking price?
    If you can afford it, I say buy it.

    A steel guitar engagment.
    You need to see it and play it. The high E string looks like it's very close to the edge of the fingerboard. If there is a slight gap or space at the neck pocket you may be able to adjust it. Good luck, I'd love to have it.

    Play it if you can, or find another '62 AVRI near you to try out. They have very thin necks which might not be good for you. Unfortunately they are hard to find, at least when I was looking for mine I had a hard time.

    Good luck, that's the best look for a tele!

    Looks like a LE Crafted in Japan from 2000. I think they only came in that finish. They played well if its the tele im thinking of. New they retailed about 600. doesnt mean much with their line as it easily hits 800.

    If that is an E-series 1980s around $US500-600 in Europe. Serial number should be on neckplate

    You might want to start by asking the seller what price he wants and go from there.

    Just glancing at it, it appears to be a 62 AVRI reissue tele. $1000-1200 is about the rate, depending on condition and modifications.

    Sounds like you need a bit more verification. As you see they are very similar from photos and videos. Minus any CIJ marking on the neck heal, but the face of the head stock does have different shading which may or may not be natural. Doesnt look altered but I would look for further verification, paper work, serial confirmation, parts check inside the guitar, factory stamps-body/neck. If you are set on the us-ri check it out closely.
