Is this worth keeping?
Does anyone know the price range of this guitar.
These arent the exact pics but mine looks exactly like the one in the photos less the Fender logo. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

The Phantom

Do you know the model #? In case you don't know, does it have a nitro or poly finish, TEA or TEB pick ups ?

not kidding

however... both TE-85s I have owned have had a mahogany skunk stripe down the back of the neck and 85 embossed in last fret (so no sticker as these were on later TE85)s

not saying yours is fake or anything, just slightly later than those i have seen which were 1979 and 1980 production
