I'm going to be in the States in May/June, visiting friends, family etc.
I'm going to be most of the time in Boston.

I have been hoping to get my hands on a Fender Strat or Tele (preferablly Telecaster), either used or new. Price range 500-800 USD. I would have thought that Fenders would be cheaper in the States than here in Germany.

Are there any good places to go in Boston? And what's the best way to transport it back to Germany? Plane or ship it to myself?

Thanks in advance for the input!
