It bothers me that I sold my 50s lacquer Tele for 5 or 600 (can't remember) around 2016. Hope that kid knows what he has, and did something awesome with it.
Ok. Let’s compare to a $600 G&L Tribute and a Yamaha PAC.
What do you think about those j mascis jazzmasters for $500 (if they're still $500)? I've thought about one just because of some of the people who've raved about them.
Can't argue there. My pretty-new CV Esquire has a pretty beefy neck, but if these are not CVs, they may well have a wimpy neck. Buy the one you like and let us know - It sure is pretty!Ah, but the B&B is what FMIC realizes offset people will pay more for I mean, those are not bells and whistles for me lol. I'll do 550 for that desert sand JM I posted above, especially if that neck feels like the older VM Jags and Mustangs (fat necks).
Good parts ain't gonna get cheaper... Because of shipping costs, few people peddle their old junk any more. Places like Stratosphere take a guitar, break it in half and sell the two halves for $100 more than they paid for the guitar. I have to search long and hard to find Fender/Squier beater necks and bodies to fix up. Nobody trashes their guitars anymore! It is a sickness!!Looks like partscasters are going to get a LOT more popular!
FSR Squier Bullet Tele in Lake Placid Blue went from $150 USD in MF/GC to $219.99 in those same outlets when the new stock arrived on or about January 19, 2022.The days of the $150 Bullet Squier may also be over. Indeed - paying more for parts and labor will typically lead to higher prices. Priced amps lately?
