Hello,
I acquired a Fender Telecaster, but I don't play and would like to sell it, but I have no idea if it is a good one or some cheap one, I would hate to sell it for too cheap. I am aware this is not a real appraisal I just need some info. It is thicker and is black and white. It has this written on the top. Fender Telecaster DES. 164,227 PAT.2,573,254, 2,784,631. Can anyone help me?

Yep.
Depending on what it is, where it was made, how old it is, and the condition, it could be worth anywhere from $50 to $50,000.
It is likely worth somewhere between $200 and $2000, but we have no way of knowing what you have, or even if what you have is a real Fender Tele and not a "Partscaster"

Regardless of what it is, how pristine or beat up it is, how authentic or how fake it is, how common or how rare it is ...
It is only worth what someone will give you for it.

This is true but anyone who knows anything will buy an original 50's Tele for $500 if they are offered it at that price. That isn't what it is worth, that would be the buyer getting an absolute steal.

To me, having the Patt numbers on the head suggests one of the following:-

a) It is a Reissue of some kind so will be worth more than an average Tele from the Country of orign.

b) It is actually old and worth serious money.


But, yet again, the OP hasn't been back since his original post (for goodness sake Fender sort this out) so we shall never know.

c) It is a fake and worth next to nothing.

Without pictures it is impossible to get closer than that.
