Expensive Telecasters - as in > $1000. more like $1200-$1500 used range. I just took forever to sell a Fender American Deluxe (Aged Chery SB, S1 switching, noiseless pups, all blinged out) on CL. No bites here or on Reverb. I sold via CL F2F and only lost about $80 from what i paid in 2012. So I'm happy with the outcome But damn, it took forever and I'm thinking it's hard to re-sell a Tele over $750-$800. Or maybe this run of the mill Am Dlx is just a dime a dozen over priced Tele. I was considering putting the money into another Tele I want, a '62 double bound with a RW board, but I'm reluctant to have another uber-tele that takes a year to re-sell (if needed). I have no issues with price/quality. Heck I bought a DGT a few months ago, so I like nice, expensive guitars and I'm willing to pay for them. What say you? is the market just slow all around or are sub $1k American Tele's strong competition to the higher priced models. Let's keep this discussion towards actual Fender branded Tele's. I have no problem with Suhr, Anderson, Kirn, etc. but they are just kind of in a whole other place.
