What do you guys think I can get for my Ibanez Telecaster? Meh... I am entertaining the thought of selling it now or holding out until it goes up in value which is a long shot at this point. Either way I will use the money ot help finance my luthier build. Here is the description of the guitar. Was built around 1967. That is when the model was released. Made in Korea. Neckplate with serial number. Has it's share of battle scars. Chips and scratches and stuff like that but no belt rash. Bridge pickup was changed out for a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail. Humbucker pickup cover was removed. Truss rod cover missing lol. About 1mm worth of laquer where at the very bottom of the fret board. Sperzel tuners. Original fender bridge. Original strap buttons. I have pictures posted up here. I will get detailed shots up sometime hopefully. I dunno I need a new camera. So how much do you guys think it's worth? I don't think it would be too much but I'm hoping for a decent price at least.

EDIT: Read last post that I made please. I'd also like to say thanks for everyones help.

Those old Ibanez copies are sometimes worth alot, some none at all. I think it all depends on the model. Look around on Ebay to get a general idea of what people are paying/selling them for.

Gear
Gibson Explorer
Epi Les Paul Standard


Amp
B-52 AT-100 Half stack.

A lot, it was built when Ibanez was making copies in the early days, it's most lekely worth alot, it probably plays like a dream.

I don't think Fender started making that style of Tele until the 70s, making it pretty hard for Ibanez to copy in 67. I'm not trying to shoot you down, and I could very well be wrong, I was just pointing it out so you could perhaps look into it a bit further.

You are right in saying that Fender didn't produce Teles with that pickup confguration until the 70's (1972, to be exact) but I believe he was referring to the body/headstock style.

Broadcaster came out in the 50's, so, you're completely wrong. Where the hell did you come up with this?

TS: Ibanez pre lawsuit copies are worth quite a bit, but if it's as scratched up as you say it is, it obviously would've gone down in value. Nonetheless, the quality of the ibanez copies was, in my opinion, superior to that of some of fender's bests, but fender did have it's star products. Regardless, if you're lookign to sell it, ebay is your best bet.

He was talking about pickup configuration, not body style. Teles with humbuckers in the neck weren't introduced until 1972. He was right.

Sorry guys lol. I switched the year around by mistake. It is supposed to be 1976. That was my fault. But besides that I will check around ebay to get an idea of it's worth then. And sorry but I'm not willing to sell it for $50 Canadian.

Yeah I mean anyone could have easily popped a humbucker into the neck of a stock Tele, it was the pickgaurd that gives it away, though.

Sweet guitar, nontheless.

Thanks lol. As it looks I don't think I can get too much for it with Ebay. I dunno I guess no one is bidding because for most of the Vintage stuff up ther there isn't really anything over $500 except for one that is about $2000. I don't think anyone bid on it though. When I get more detailed pictures I will put it up for auction with a researve and see what I can get for it. If I can't get much I am keeping it and modding it out. I don't care if thats the case.

LOL, cool, I was about to say that if it was a '67 I don't think Ibanez HAD a factory in Korea yet!
