    It's a model made from 2001 to 2003 in Korea. Mahogany, set neck, hum buckers with coil splitting. Waiting for the call now.

    Is this the blue one? I found it quite intriguing, but I'm not in the market for another guitar yet.

    Add says pristine but one of the photos close up has it looking a little grungy.

    I'm not in the market either but when this model comes up for sale I'm always interested. Particularly when I'm going to be within 5 miles of it instead of 50.

    I love those. Have a blue, red, and black. And a black one with plastic still on pickups and hang tags.
    Good luck! Those are really nice guitars! Hope you playing it soon.

    I never see those come up very often around here. I'd definitely snatch it up.

    I know and I wanted one back during the 3 years they made them but couldn't justify the $399 price tag.

    Ok. Just got back home. This morning I had to take my wife to the dentist in Richmond, Virginia, about 60 miles away. Last night I spotted the Tele on CL and saw that it was about 5 miles from her dentist so I tried to set up a meet while in the area and got it done. I was happy as there there was no shipping charges since I had to be there anyway. The gentleman got a break from work long enough to show me the guitar. The neck is straight in that it's not warped and it doesn't have a scratch on it, literally. It is dusty and you can tell it sat on the stand for a long time. He's the original owner and bought it from Mars Music. He said he played it 5 or 6 times in that period otherwise it was in the case. So I got the guitar, a Gator hard shell case, a Quick A guitar stand and two sets of D'Addario strings for $200.

    I'll post a separate thread once I take some before and after photos after I do some work in on it. It needs:
    Cleaning
    Fret polish
    New Strings

    you should get arrested... $200 is a steal! I have the red one (in good, but not perfect condition), and it is a nice Korean Squier...

    Congratulations! You indeed stole that one!.
    Those were made in the Cort factory btw.. Love those jumbo frets. But i seldom use the coil tap switch. Enjoy! !

    I just looked on reverb and there are 4 on there. Two blue, two red priced from $269 to $299 with no case. They all have dings. I know they didn't come up that often and was surprised they still have asking prices that high.

    It's a squier double fat telecaster deluxe, but in my searching on eBay etc, I've found them incorrectly listed as stagemaster, . Carved top squier, . Set neck double humbucker squier telecaster. Etc. .. So when looking it can get tricky. . Enjoy!
