I have been contemplating parting with my telecaster but have no idea what kind of value it has. First it would not be considered a collector as some parts have been replaced. It is a 67 tele with maple neck and maple fretboard. It used to be a cream color many many years ago but was stripped down and stained natural. The tuners were a problem so they were replaced with the Fender Schaller type. Years back it was routed out at the neck to accept a HB but over the years the HB was removed and it was back to tele style pickups. The bridge pickup had died on me, but I still have it, and the neck pup has been lost over the years. It now sports a set of texas tele pickups. The selector was changed to a 4 way but the knobs,control plate and bridge are all original. It has been naturally reliced due to a lot of use, actually wore the frets out but had them redone at the 12th fret in Toronto a couple decades ago and they are sweet. Guitar plays and sounds great. If anybody could offer me a little insight it would be appreciated... thanks.
