    I have a meeting time arranged for this one tomorrow. Am I correct that it is a VM? Guy is asking $120 for this and a Yale Reverb amp.

    Is it a VM? I’m pretty sure it is, but I’m not so good at telling all the different models apart. Except for NCs and SEs ! LOL

    Yep, MIC VM, first generation, this is a 24.75" scale instrument, 22 fret with no overhang, so not interchangeable with other Tele parts (bodies, necks) etc....but it's got AMAZING pickups.....and they're AWESOME.....

    get it now! Those are worth over $350 US on the used market now.....

    I have never seen any of these with a 22 fret neck WITHOUT overhang. Mine is 22 frets, but with overhang.

    The "you can not just put another neck on it"-problem is related to the fact that usually a tele neck is 25.5" instead of 24.75" (in this case). The location of the 12th fret must be in the middle between the saddle and the nut. So if you'd put a 25.5" neck on it, either (I'm too tired to think about the specifics), the saddles would have to move a lot closer to the bridge pickup or a lot further from it (again: it's just one, but I don't want to mention the wrong direction here).

    There are later Fender Modern Player teles with a 22 fret neck without overhang.

    That’s a sweet guitar and an even sweeter deal! Hope you bag it @dbrian66

    I didn’t get it. Had a time arranged to pick it up, but I texted him to say I was on my way and he texted back that it was already sold. Kind of pissed me off because we agreed on the pickup time just a few hours earlier. Oh well, life goes on. :)

    Sorry to hear that. I hope he told you first come, first served so that was a possibility. If he didn't, I would expect somebody offered him more and he didn't want to let you know that he was a person of very low integrity by telling you.

    It wasn’t a big deal. I’ve bought and sold enough stuff to know that this stuff happens.

    I had a doctors appointment in the city where the guitar was so I told him I could swing by after the appointment and he said that was fine. When I got out of the appointment is when I texted him and found out is was sold. The irritating part was, that morning I texted him and said my morning had freed up and I could come by before the doctors appointment. But he wanted to keep the later time!

    You win some, you loose some! LOL
