I honestly would like to score a white MIM tele myself... Haven't been able to found one.
Scored a white MIM Strat for next to nothing though.

I'm getting one sometime this week. Scored it used for $350. Just needs some new strings and a setup.

on craigslist, most likely. you can, but you'll have to find the right seller who really wants / needs money and isn't concerned with waiting until they can get more money from a buyer

I myselft own a sunburst mim tele and I love it to death, but you may want to check one of these out, great specs, great sound, semi hollow, never actually had my hands on one, but it's just a thought. I'm actually GASing for one myself, to go along my mim tele, but I did just spend 280 on a ibanez artcore, so. . .

I would have thought you would have struggled to get a Fender Tele for $300, especially if you're picky about the colour, but you might get lucky.

You could get a new high end Squire Tele for that price and just change the pickups for fender ones. Some of the Squire tele's are just as good as the MiM Fenders you could find, its just finding it

You could definitely find an MIM tele on craigslist for $300, just look around and be patient for the right deal, not the fast deal.

Also look on guitar centers used guitars. I sold them my Tobbaccoburst MIM Tele when I bought my Les Paul and they sold it for $350. They actually have some decent deals on used gear. I got a used Boss Chorus Ensemble yestrday for $40 works great.

ive purchased off ebay, as long as you find a seller with high ratings you should be all set. Just try and ask them questions if you can. also look at CL, im in NH where there arent many listings but one or two times a week i will see a tele going for no more than 325, you just can be too picky about color. i picked up my sunburst tele for what was being sold for 300, but i traded with him.

You could probably talk someone into selling you a tele on craigslist close to 300. You never know though- have you searched your local music shops yet? I bought my first tele about 6 years ago for $240 brand new...working at Guitar Center has its perks!
