Everything I said was subjective and cannot be incorrect. I was talking about how I approach the guitar marketThis is nonsensical. And inaccurate.
There is essentially no difference between most 1969 Teles and nearly all 1970 and 1971 Teles other than transition away from shrinking and cracking pearloid-backed PGs during 1970. In fact, having had a LOT of Teles from these years, I've found the 1970 and 1971s to be consistently better guitars in fit and finish, and subjectively in lighter weight and sound.
As for value, I'd invite you simply research that.
It started with "for me"
True it doesn't make sense to draw a hard line there in that spot. But it's somewhere in there. Again, for me
