$70 shipped Monoprice Telecaster knockoff electric guitar, weekend sale

We get a lot of questions here about starter guitars, and you'd have a hard time finding a better deal on a new one than this. I doubt you could find a Squier in a pawn shop for this price.

[www.monoprice.com]

Thanks to computer-aided manufacturing, this is the golden age of cheap electrics, and Monoprice makes very good ones, especially for the price. No, it's not the level of what you'd get from the Fender Custom Shop, but it's certainly comparable to a Squier. I've picked up a couple of their cheap Strat models just for the parts to build custom Partscasters, and they're very well made. If you play already, swap in a couple of Seymour Duncan pickups and you've got a very playable guitar for very few bucks.

(Doesn't look like the 15% off coupon works for this deal, sadly.)

UPDATE: Now out of stock (~noon Sunday).

If it matters, looks like the only color at that price is the blue.

15% off does work on the other colors that are not already discounted.

Back in my youth, this would be the starting point to create a Relic No-Caster.
Disassemble, scuff up that ugly blue color and strip with Citristrip*.
*back then it would have been a DCM based stripper done outdoors!

imho based on current parts prices, $70 for a tele body & neck; it's a no-brainer.

Even though I already have one of that model (plus one of their strat and one of their Les Paul lookalikes), I went ahead and ordered one at that price. My wife does really cool painting, and we’re going to try it on it.

That's a really good price for a knock around Tele. Still playing my '67, bought new for $160.00 with hardshell case from Jimmy's Music on 48St in NYC that year.
