    Don't know about that scratching, odd "wear and tear" ??


    It is a 2000-2001 not a '94 and that is not a Texas Special bridge pup.

    I wrote him (kindly) just so he doesn't get in trouble after the sale.


    Wouldn't be a bad deal for 275- $300 though with the case.

    It's probably super coarse sandpapering

    Isn't that a way to not having your telecaster stolen?

    He did say it was that way when he got it, either way though, 200 might not be too bad for what it is

    Yeah it's still worth it if the price doesn't get bid up much further, and you sure wouldn't be worried about nicking it!

    those lines look like shattering, I'd say it either got dropped nicely or had something land on top of it/a forklift drive over it

    Drop damage (or tank tread damage) is a possibility, I've seen that thick poly finish shatter like a rotten egg before.
    The repair tag on the neck is a little disconcerting though.

    Actually for $200, those earlier MIM guitars have yummy necks and smaller frets that some of us prefer.
