Opinion: How Much For The Broken Tele?

Ok, so this may be just me but since I read about it a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about it and being annoyed about it pretty regularly.
Guitarist, John 5 likes Telcasters, and why wouldn’t he? He has a couple of, really quite nice, signature models with Fender and their lower-budget sibling, Squier. I like the guitars a lot and even quite like John 5 himself.
If you haven’t already seen (and you may well have as this isn’t spanking new news), John 5 is selling his signature guitars …

Squier Classic Vibe Telecasters

Squier have announced the introduction of two new versions of classic Telecaster guitars.
Say hello to the Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster Custom and the Classic Vibe Telecaster Thinline guitars.  Both are based on classic Tele designs from the ’60’s.
The Classic Vibe Thinline has a semi-hollow body, as you’d expect, but it’s made from mahogany .  The tinted lacuqer finish looks great and we’ve always loved the thinline pickguard – looks cool as far as we’re concerned – and this one is a snazzy mint green.

John 5 Interview At Fender

Fender has posted an interview with guitarist, John 5.
There can’t be many that are unfamiliar with John 5, if only from his work with Marilyn Manson.  He has, of course, worked with a shed-load of other artists and is lucky enough to have both a Fender and a Squier signature model (and both quite nice they are too).
You may not know, however, that he has a Fender Telecaster from every year they’ve been available except for ’57, ’58 and ’60.  Lucky bastard.
His favourite is a 1950 Broadcaster.
