POST # 210 : TELECASTER VALUE on EBAY - 1953 Telecaster
From today onwards I will feature a few price guides gleamed from Ebay of selected Vintage Instruments.
Since Ebay only have info available on completed item for a few weeks only I thought if I index a few instruments it might be interesting and of value to a buyer or seller who wants to check out what someone paid for a guitar.
Most of these guitars are still on Ebay history but will go offline in the near future, if you are interested they might still be availble on their webpage.
BTW I have only included items that HAVE SOLD....bit pointless to include items that are priced ridiculously high and have no correlation with market values!
So without futher ado lets go with our first post! A much worked on 1953 Telecaster....whats it worth??? Find out at end of the post!
Here's the blurb from the seller
Here we have a 1953 Fender Telecaster. Finish has been stripped. . Bridge pickup is original and sounds incredible. Neck pickup is aftermarket. Electronics (cap and pots) are correct. Switch was changed inthe 1960's. Control plate, jack cup and knobs are original. Bridge is original. Brass saddles are replacement. Neckplate is original with original screws. Tuners are double line Kluson tuners from the 1960's. Strap buttons and string tree are original. Original bakelite pickguard was sanded and reshot with overspray when body was stripped (jhey man, it wasthe 60s.) Decal is a replacement but looks rreal good. Frets are in nice shape but was refretted. We hate to let this one go. Gig bag.
THE DAMAGE: US$8995
Bit of Fender history for close to 9K ... good value or not?? What do you think?
