I don't know the exchange rate between NZ and US dollars, but I do know that a standard Tele is around $700 US list price. That pickup is not standard to telecasters, so what they're selling you has either been heavily modified or is not a real Fender Telecaster. It could also be a Telecaster Deluxe, but at that price, I highly doubt it.

Teles are great guitars, but I'd recommend getting one that hasn't been modified, or even a new one. Not sure if it'll fulfill your blues needs though. For my blues I use a Casino, and my Tele for everything else. :-P

Fender Strats are very versatile guitars and most blues musicians use them like Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, Robbie Robertson

but any hollow body is good, cause it has a deep tone, i have an Ibanez Artcore AFS78T and its great for blues
