Resale value is often determined by supply and demand.

The original Dallas Rangemasters are quite rare, and due to being perceived as the holy grail of treble boosters, it doesn't surprise me that...

I had no idea the Baja had been discontinued, I'm resisting the urge to facepalm at Fender for that.

Out of those 3, the Baja Tele is the better option, by quite a long way, IMO.
