I went to the local guitar shop today and found a MIM Telecaster with Seymour Duncan Pickups. I dont kno what type of SD pickup but they were deff seymours. The guitar cost $325 USD used. What do ya guys think? good deal or no?

seems expensive considering MIM start at 400.00 new



I think they got a major price raise recently( I know Strats did, not sure about Teles) So that isn't a terrible price used. (if Teles got the price raise also)

Let's do some math, shall we?

New MIM; $550.

Seymour Duncans; $80 or so each on average.

Let's assume both were replaced. Cost of two Seymour Duncans; $160.

550 + $160 = 710

Guitars lose 25%-50% of value after being used. Just walking out of the store lowers the value, much like a car. Let's go with a middle ground between those two and take 35%,

710 *.35 = 461.50

Even if it was 50% of the value it would've been $362, and that's not factoring in how much you pay them so they actually make a profit off what they give the guy, who would have to be an idiot to sell a guitar with SD's for less than half of what he bought it for, so yes, I'd say this is a good deal both in my opinion and mathematically.
