Post Valuation on a '76 Lefty US Telecaster
What it says in the title.

I haven't seen the instrument and have no interest in buying it, but apparently it's black with a Maple neck, and comes with original case and is reportedly in pristine condition having sat under a bed for 30 years!

Anybody?

Browsing the internet I'm seeing about $700 to $1100 depending on both edition, and condition.

One particular American Telecaster went for $200,000.oo

Thanks.

I did a quick search as well and saw asking prices for righty instruments of that kind of age at around $1400 - $2000 on eBay.

I forgot to mention that this is in the UK so prices will be in £ sterling.

I did a trade on a lefty '77 Jazz bass over here recently that had it at around £1700 ($2500). I don't think a Tele would be worth quite as much, but the vintage market is still fairly active over here (and the 'seller' assures me that it's in showroom condition). That leads me to think £1200 - £1500 would be a bit closer, but I'd value other people's thoughts.

Man, I'd love a '77 Jazz bass... natural finish?

I've bought '77-'78 Strats for between £800-£1200, so I would imagine a Tele would be similar or perhaps slightly more, as they're not as common. But it all comes down to condition. £1200-£1500 would probably be about right in 'showroom' condition.
