    Hey friends. I’m inquiring about the market for recent lefty MIM tele’s. I’ve got a line on a 2015 sunburst that I could pass on for around $250 plus shipping, maybe even a little less. The body front has a couple of bad chips down to bare wood. Other than that it’s really nice. I’m not well versed on the lefty market so I thought I’d throw this out there and see what kind of response there is. Thanks so much.

    are you a lefty player?
    there are more of us than you know and finding a good player is a wow factor, to play a tele upside down sucks huge ( personal expirience) and I ended selling my 60's right handed because it was unplayable ,If you are buying to resell as with all guitars its condition , setup and playability, and ethstetics , I picked up an affinity lefty tele ( total ehh! ) by most standards and has no resale value , but this beast plays like a hot Damn and the pickups are fantastic sounding I am shocked!

    My brother is seen here playing my 60's with my BFSR in the Yukon

    Sorry didn't make it clear I guess. I'm not a lefty. I was trying to do a favor for any lefty's out there looking for a player grade tele. I don't know how hard they are to find. That was my question. If anyone is interested, I will get some pics. Thanks.

    I'm still not sure you would bother, there's not many right handed players who give a hoot about the lefty's plight of finding good guitars, but we (collectively) appreciate it, thanks!

    Just hard to pass up on a nice guitar, at the price I can get it for. And if I can pass it on to someone who could use it, all the better.
