I'm having a difficult time finding and deciding on the right maple necked Tele. I've been through a bunch lately and probably don't NEED one... but, you know how it goes. Anyway, the price discrepancies between old/new Tokai's and Greco's especially are throwing me all off. That coupled with the fact that many sellers don't really know exact model numbers and such, is making it a tough decision. I'm not ruling out another LP style (just traded away really nice Edwards Gold Top ) For example, there is a nice looking 2005 Tokai Gold Top on the bay for about $675? Why does that seem cheaper than so many others I have seen? Then everyone talks about older Burny's (Fernandes, right?) I routinely see them for $500-650... is that right? Or am I looking at the wrong models? What about the Tele's like the Breezysounds and such... they are supposed to be great, right? Just a little confused, that's all. The MIJ/CIJ Fender's are a known commodity to me but I guess with the other "off" brands it might be a crapshoot? Is it best to just assume older is better when it comes to Burny, Tokai, Greco, Edwards? I guess it becomes a little more dicey when you get into that gray area of $600-800 where some used MIA guitars start to come into the mix as well. G&L's come to mind as well as Hamer's.
