On craigslist, the guy says it's an early 90's USA made Fender Tele with only a few bumps and rubs. He's asking $600 for it....is this a good deal?
nope. too expensive
A new one costs $1000. Ask him if he'll take $450. That's way more reasonable.
As long as its not bad sounds like a good deal. US made Fender guitars keep their value pretty well. Same with Gibsons. May want to try $500
600 is an okay deal. The guitar is 20 years old, so the age has to be considered a + for value. You may want to try getting a used newer tele, as that may be better for you.
