so i've been on the look out for a highway one tele, USA made etc etc..

however - they are pretty hard to find used!

what other recommendations would you give for around that £400 used budget?
That's not a lot to go off of. A standard tele?

Things that restored my faith in humanity this year: 26
Things that removed all faith in humanity this year: 1,563,745,234 (estimated)

so that's a result of -1,563,745,208 faith points in humanity lost, which is actually up from last year!
MIM Tele? I prefer them because of the satin neck. Thats just me, but i dont really see the point of goig MIA when half-priced guitars overthrow them.
Personally, I'd be balls deep in a Baja.

The other top end Mexicans go for similar second hand (Thinline, 72 Deluxe/Custom) but the Baja is a more traditional Tele with good pickups/build and sounds great.
Got it:
Pacifica 604w, Hohner G3T, PRS SE Soapbar I, Schecter Ultra I
Fender 'evil' Twin, Marshall 2554 combo

what 'half priced MIM' beats the quality of a USA tele?

From what ive tried, i have to admit it just tried them, but the MI was half the MIA' price and i liked the mim alot more.
