Musician's Friend is selling the Fender Player Telecaster Edition Electric Guitar for $549.99 (normally price is $700). Limited Edition.

These are made in Mexico (MIM) and are excellent instruments, many players state that quality, sound and playability of these Mexican Teles are comparable to American made Telecasters (which retail for $1,000 and up).

MIM guitars are the best quality, just not the best hardware! I has a MIM Strat and Schecter and they are a s perfect as can be. Chinese are worst quality. Indonesia is OK. Japanese are highest. Korean are very gud.

This is nonsense. Some Indonesian built guitars are excellent (Ibanez Premium and others) and some are terrible. Some Chinese guitars are fantastic (Eastman) others are great (Squier Classic Vibe) and some are near garbage (lowest end Epiphones and a lot of clones). Some American made guitars are terrible (like whatever I'd put together).

MIM Fenders are built in Mexico by Mexicans. American made Fenders are made in California by Mexicans. Or so I'm told. I have both and they're great either way. Smilie

Good deal if you want a Tele with humbuckers, tummy cut, and 6 saddle bridge.

If you want a more traditional Tele, check out this sale for a few dollars more.

American and Méxican Fender are technically the same quality and designed by the same team in their Hollywood office. Materials and components are from the same sources. The main difference is price due to the labor saving by paying Mexican vs American wages.

Exactly: MIM Fenders are built in Mexico by Mexicans. American made Fenders are made in California by Mexicans

But there are plenty of people out there who will insist that MIA are just so much better.
