    The only Monterey (a bass) I bought was pretty dissapointing - personally id spend a little more and get something you wont regret.

    if you are after a really cheap guitar ( Not a tele though)

    https://www.modernmusician.com.au/e...wO_R1Qfg0HtQIfPFLMbq7IEgbK-m5xYRoC_6QQAvD_BwE
    $199 on sale or you could buy something like

    I have one of these I bought for a laugh more than anything else, its serviceable though the tuners are rubbish with a big dead zone (ill replace with some cheap locking ones when I can be bothered)

    Personally, id buy a used pacifica 012/112 from ebay/gumtree/facebook marketplace but thats me.

    Agreed but if someone is looking at Monterey stuff they aint looking to spend that much.

    I actually saw a MIM telecaster butterscotch for $350 on marketplace. That resparked my interest for a tele

    Maybe checkout Squire or SX? I bought a used Squire Jazzmaster off gumtree for $200 and was surprised with how it felt. It did have a cheapness to it but was still enjoyable to play. I also bought a SX semi-hollow stat and found it to be decent for the $400.

    Or a used Pacifica 112/012, they arent miles away from a tele. I have both and they are really nice for beginners like me
