Hi, I walked past a local music store, and it had a second hand "Bitscaster" in the window, which drew my eye. I bought my first electric, a Squier CV50 before Christmas, which I love, but now my 10 year old daughter is wanting an electric as well. Thinks it isn't fair she's stuck with an acoustic. So I've been looking around for one. Was thinking of a Thinline, for weight reasons, but this one is selling for £200, only £40 more than the Richwood thinline I was thinking of. Thing is, I'm new to the Tele game, and don't know if this one is good value or not. I like the idea of a humbucker in the neck as I never use the neck pickup on my CV50 as it's a bit jazzy for my tastes. I had a play around with this one in the shop and did like the sound of it. But would my daughter appreciate a "roadworn" tele the way I would, and if not, would I be prepared to hand over my CV50 and use this one instead. Not sure my wife would be up for three new guitars in just a few months! The man in the shop said it was a genuine Fender 70s style neck, but probably not that old. Didn't know anything about the body, but felt it was unlikely to be a Fender as no stamps on the neck plate or the bridge. Tag said Filterton 60s lookalike pickup (whether that means it's a copy of a Filterton pickup, or a Filterton pickup designed to look like it's from the 60s I don't know). Looking at the photos, it's a bit hard to see but there are a fair few dings in the paintwork, and the bridge plate has been moved slightly and the exposed holes have been noticeably filled in. And the metal work is a bit rusty. Either all adds to the vibe, or flaws that knock its value, depending on your point of view! Love to know what people think.
