    I am looking for a black Squier Tele Custom - one of the models with the wide range humbucker in the neck and the single coil pickup in the bridge.
    If you have one you are looking to sell or trade off, lmk
    Thanks

    That one in Minnesota linked above isn’t far from me. I could probably ship for less than the $50 they want if you wanted to try to go for that one. Also, they have 15% off sales sometimes at that MGR.

    I think that one is a refurb - funky serial number ?

    The VM Tele CUstom is SH and the VM Tele Deluxe is HH, but there may be some wiggle room in those designations..

    Mine is a refurb. Couldn't find anything wrong with it. Because I don't plan to sell, it not an issue. I imagine one could negotiate on that point, give that the non-refurb in PA is the same price.

    Congrats. My refurb was around $240. So $300 shipped is reasonable.

    I had one of these for a short while. Quality was on par with my CVs, except it had an extra locking washer loose on the inside.

    Why? OK, I did mod mine, cosmetically, with a black bridge and black pickguard screws. But why pursue this model only to mod it?

    I prefer vintage style necks (7.25" radius, small frets) and I play in a bar where I have to use either humbuckers or so some sort of noiseless pickups!

    Had I known you were going to mod it I would have made you a deal on one I have without pickups, but mine is the Deluxe with 2 HBs(missing). easy mod to put a bridge on it and cut the pickguard.
    Oh well.

    My Tele Custom came this morning and I cannot believe what a nice guitar it is and it looks like it has never been played! Even the fretwork is top-notch Now to find the right vintage-spec neck for it!
