    Just stopped in at GC Arlington Texas, they have a white 64 PV Tele on clearance, $1499. Somebody give it a home so I don’t have to. The GAS is strong with this one.. IMG_6404.JPG

    Price too high for a used one. Especially considering there is tax and an obvious ding, not to mention the crappy source it's coming from.

    I've been shopping for one for a few months, and $1,400 delivered for one without chips seems about right from what I've seen out there.

    Yeah I figured it probably was high considering the source. There’s actually two pretty good dings in it...sure plays and sounds sweet though....I’m out on it, hopefully someone can work something out for it.

    If someone can get it for $1,200 or $1,300 out the door, I'd say go for it. $1,500 plus tax is just too much, though, IMO.

    Oh.

    I have to hand it to that store.

    That fretboard certainly needs some love and care. It's the driest, unloveliest board I've seen in a while. It looks like it's been hanging there for 5 years. It has a few greasy prints on the high strings from a handful of weedlers, but it looks like death warmed up.

    And it's knob has been lost.

    They’re not used. That’s what GC is selling their unsold new stock for. My local GC has one too.

    It's missing the switch tip cover too.

    Also got a chip off the top body edge. You could offer to buy with discount as shop damaged. That fretboard though needs a lot of improving.

    I would not care about the chip, if its a good weight (for me about 7lbs) and rings out nice, its would be a good grab. I have one and I reach for it more than my others Teles. To me the fret board looks like a lighter color rosewood, more so than just dry.

    I wouldn’t get too hung up on the fretboard. If you changed the strings and slapped a little bit of lemon oil on the board it’d be more than fine. It could be a great guitar, sounds really good. Too rich for me presently though....

    Just wait for a 15% off sale. $1275+ tax. That’s what I did with my ‘52, plus they knocked another 10% off with my trade. I paid less than the asking price for very good used models.

    There was only one generation of the AV '64. It ran roughly from some time in 2011 through 2017. It's successor is the American Original '60s, which does have the AV '64 pickups, but doesn't have the same finger board radius (7.25") and finish as the AV '64. There are a few other differences as well.
