    Hello All.
    Bought from original owner. Pristine condition and it sounds even better... This is definitely one amazing Telecaster.

    Sincerely,
    Rich

    Wow nice burst! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you wind up paying? Came across a similar model yesterday!

    Hello and thank you. It is a nice guitar. $675.00 out the door. I think the seller liked my son, they were jamming together. Otherwise I don't think he was going to sell it and did pull the listing the day before we went to see it. Some things are just supposed to be... Thankfully, this was one of them.

    Sincerely,
    Rich

    Very nice! A local guy here has a 98' model with a maple board under his bed that he will not let go for anything less than $825. He bought the guitar from a co-worker who had fell on hard times and paid a little too much for it. But, I wish I could find an Am. Standard for $695!

    I've got this '97 with a maple neck. Bought it in a pawn shop for $700 back in 2001.
    I love this guitar. No matter what other guitar comes in to my life I always come back to my 97.

    I had the exact same Tele, except mine was '95. Superb guitar... One of the best Teles I've ever owned. Congrats.

    Congrats, Nice!

    I have a '95 almost exactly like that, except it now has a Glendale bridge and tortoise shell pickguard.

    My brother has made me promise that if I sell it, he gets first dibs on it, and he's not even a Tele guy!

    Beautiful guitar. I have a 92 American standard burst with a maple neck and it is one of the best guitars I've ever played!

    Thank you all. It IS one amazing guitar! This one is a keeper... It almost looks like a one piece body but our son Willie was able to discern the perfect book matched 2 pieces. Cheers.

    Sincerely,
    Rich
