    The bridge pickup is a "Duncan Designed." The logo doesn't look right on the head stock, but that might be poor pictures. The bridge isn't a stock MIM bridge.

    Need more info. Could be a Franken-Tele.

      Is that a Koa Tele? There was a short MIK run of them a few years ago.

    MIK Fender Koa Tele. A notch above MIM telecasters. Really hot Duncan pickups too. I have one also. Great guitars.

      Thanks, I was hesitant about checking it out.

    That looks like a good buy. It will have a figured birdseye maple neck also.

      Can't tell for sure, but someone badly doesn't know how to intonate a guitar - if you try it, it will sound nasty with chords.

        yup, Koa Tele...really nice guitars. For $300, that's a no-brainer...grab it quick! Those were fairly expensive, if I remember correctly (compared to a regular MIM model).

      Whenever you seethat plastic/nylon insert in the truss rod adjust, it's nearly always Korean
