so I might end up trading my G-400 for this (if its a fender) but I cant really tell. it says on there that its a fender, but sometimes they do that. I asked him yesterday, so I should get a response today...but can you guys tell from the two pics? it has 22 frets...

also do you think its worth it to trade my epi for it? plus cash? I wouldnt do it if its a squier, but if its a fender...

I am not a fan of telecasters, so I say keep the epiphone.

It was the only task I would undertake...

yeah, dude be caveat emptor, it looks like he scratched off the logo on purpose so that's a bit suspicious.

i've never seen a squier tele with a bridge like that so rule squier out

Edit: but then again it says beautiful korean tele so he/she could've just modded it

It's an old Korean squire most likely. They're pretty good quality from what I've played on.

I'm thinking it's a squier. I've never heard of a korean fender.. Mexico, Japan, and US only i'm pretty sure

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

It loks like an lite ash tele to me, and if I remember well, weren´t those made in korea?

Esquires have one pickup, this has two.

It probably is a Lite Ash Tele, it's got the albalone (or whatever) inlays I think, which I haven't seen on a Squier.

I dont really care for my g-400 much any more because it sounds too identical to my les paul, except with less sustain...I want single coil pickups, and I love the look of teles..

then I would go with a strat, in my experience a tele has a similar bright sound to that of a SG, therefor the sounds would be similar. A strat has its own sound, you can find a mexican strat for the same price of this guitar, and it will have better value.

Tele's and SG's sound completely different,and if that is in fact an MIK lite ash tele then it's a good deal on a nice guitar.To say a strat has it's own sound and not acknowledge the unique tone of a tele is pretty lol worthy IMO.

Exactly.Also different body and neck woods,which will also make a difference in tone.Get the seller to show you more photos of the guitar.If it has a birdseye maple board and neck with abalone dots then it's a lite ash tele.

Tele's sound very much to an SG in my opinion, SG has more crunch, and a tele is brighter. Obviously the tele has its own sound, I didn't mean to come off saying that it didn't, my point was that if he wants something completely different, I would go with a strat.

Definitely lite ash Tele. Note the Abalone fret inlays, and I think thise necks are birdseye.

Also, 8 screw pickguard, re-issue '52s or '52 copies are 5 screw.

There's always the case of it's a project that someone has bolted together...


Anyway, although a little cheap feeling, I'd still go for the Tele over the SG.

is this a fender or squier?
I seriously doubt it's either. The shape of the headstock looks wrong to me.
