Most of you know I am looking for a tele. Mainly at this time a 50's classic series lacquer in white blonde, if I hate it then I'll try something else then. So what do y'all think is a fair price...with the hard shell fender tweed case and with out? When they were new, for I think $900(correct me if I am wrong), did that include the hard shell tweed case, for those that remember? I am just trying to make sure I pay a fair price, plus I'll need an amp too. So, thank you for the replies. I really appreciate it.
