GC claims to have AV ‘52 Telecasters in stock and on sale sale for $1579.
a word to the wise: I bought a "new" Music Man Cutlass off GC and it arrived with ancient strings, a Ray Charles setup, a few nicks and dings, no case candy and a non-working neck pickup. When I called to enquire, they said "new" just meant they hadn't sold it before. No idea about these Teles but I would call the store itself that has them in stock & make sure you're comfortable with the condition.
in the end I got a used guitar for a used guitar price -- and I could have returned it. I didn't because it's a great guitar.
Not a bad price. Bought mine new from them last year. It was marked down quite a bit and after the sale coupon and an additional 10% from a trade, my out the door cost was $1,160. Way better than used. It’s a great guitar and my number 1. Funny thing is, I wasn’t looking for it. Only took it off the wall because I’d never tried one before. Sound familiar?
My local shop has an excellent one in near mint condition for $1,599, with no G.C. nonsense. I would already own it if I hadn't recently picked up a few rather pricey guitars.
$1,600 is the max that "new" AVs should be marked at at this point, IMO. They've been sitting around in the shops for a year and a half at the least...and with tax, you're still at around $1,750, which isn't exactly the deal of the century for a guitar that's been sitting out getting molested by the peanut gallery for a year and a half.
When my local shop got the AOs in, they marked all AVs down to $1,600. I grabbed what I could, but you can't have 'em all! I got the sunburst '58 (though they also had a blonde one), and a '65 limited run Strat (which was only $1,300 because it had a replacement Fender case, not the original one). Their Burgundy Mist '65 Strat finally sold a few weeks ago, and the '52 Tele is their only AV left.
