    They seem to be 249 new, but I think the were 199 not long ago. $145 seems fair to sightly high.

    Yep... that’s about what I was thinking. I’m gonna offer $100.00 and see what happens.

    I think $145 is fair if you were already looking for that particular Tele. 120-130ish is better :)

    The standard is a sleeper.
    Worth asking price, but lower is always better. :)

    If it's pretty much perfect ,I'd offer a lil less ,but still give $145 if I really wanted it.

    It's a sharp Tele for sure and I bet it sounds great too. These are nice !

    This is the Tele I was thinking about putting your VM pups in :)

    I'm considering a Standard Tele as the basis of a project and I've been seeing them all the time around $150 on Guitar Center and Reverb. So $145 seems a bit high for a private seller, but if you want it, you can just go ahead and buy it knowing that it's "worth" what you paid. :)

    If it was a "generic" color (like black, or SB with mismatched wood pieces) I'd say it was overpriced. I've never seen a red/black SB in person (and I want one), so I'd pay his asking with no problem especially if it's as mint as he says.

    I bought a 2017 Squier Standard Tele for $125 with no case about a year ago here in So Florida off CL. It was the last of the series with rosewood fret boards (which I prefer over Laurel) and it sounded and played great. The tone knob was defective and also it was Vintage Blonde, but looked like lung butter to me.

    These are not common to find used as the Affinities and Bullets are. So at $145 is appears to be a fair deal. Grab it before someone else does!

    Looks really clean. I wouldn't be afraid to pay $145 for a solid, Standard.

    I paid $150 for a mint Tele Standard but the case came with it. If it were me, I'd focus on getting the case thrown in for the asking price or a few bucks more.

    How much is he charging for shipping? Maybe he will ship for the price listed.

    Funny, I often try to lower the price just a little bit if I don't have to take the case... ;)

    It starts with, the case must be worth at least 50, then I say, would agree to lower the price by 50 if I don't take the case? I even succeeded (only once)...

    All the standards I have played were great ! They truly are a "sleeper" ! !

    What do y'all think he means by, "the wood was treated"? Oiled fret board, or the body was pressure treated like Osmose lumber? (LOL!)
    I'm not sure exactly what the guy means, but it's an unusual comment to see in a guitar description.

    It's an "antique sunburst" Squier Standard Telecaster. Nice guitars IMO.

    I have one and it gets used a lot as a backup guitar and one for dodgier gigs.

    I have the notion to turn mine into a Fat Tele by putting a humbucker in the neck slot

    This.

    The word on the street is that all the Standard teles have humbucker routs already in the neck position. $145 and I'd be almost halfway to the HH Tele of my dreams!
