    Hello,
    Has anyone tried the 2014 Fender FSR ‘50s Baja Classic Player Telecaster In the Vegas Gold Sparkle finish?
    Are they the same as a ‘50s Baja Classic Player?
    I read where Fender only made a short run of this guitar for one year.
    Not many of these were made and are a Rare find.
    What would be a good price if the guitar is in mint condition?
    Anyone already have one?
    Thank you
    ArchangelMM

    It’s a Baja 50s Tele. Nothing is different except the color. I believe the Vegas Gold ones were an FSR for GC and MF.

    I don’t know the current price range for used Baja 50s Teles. IMO the Vegas Gold doesn’t command a premium price for its color. They’re not common on the market, but they don’t have universal appeal.

    I’m always looking for these. The few I’ve seen are about 1200.00 PLUS. not cheap due to the awesome color.

    There's one on eBay for $895. Pretty. I didn't know these existed.

    About 800. New..
    600. Would be a good used price.. if your lucky..
    Considering they're hard to find they probably hold their price pretty well..
    I was actually hoping you had one for sale.. :(

    Per personal eyeball inspection, Fender's Vegas Gold has a larger flake than Squre's sparkle finishes which have a larger flake than either brand's "metallic" finishes.
