If this Telecaster looks new in the photos, it’s because it’s only a few months old. But you can get a nice deal on it, because it was traded in with a few small dings on the top and back and some light scratches. Nothing through the finish, nothing that will show up in the photos, from 2 feet away the guitar looks new. Under direct lighting at the right angle, you see some wear.  These are fresh photos.
