On pricing for purchase, it appears in fairly good shape.
Maybe 65% of current new price ?

I am not the greatest at math, but the used store near me usually price meets customers somewhere in that range.

I think the Professionals only came with SSS configurations (but could be wrong).

And yeah - extra points for that groovy-looking grain!

Looks like the original was SSS, so the basic configuration has not been changed, however, it did ship with white plastics.
Easy enough to change, the pickups and electronics may still be original.

The Sienna sunburst are ash bodies. Because it’s ash and the market is nuts, I’d suspect $1,300ish. There are some on reverb listed at more than original retail so who knows.

I’d want to know if the pickups and electronics were changed, or just the pickguard and plastics (as noted above stock is parchment pickguard and aged white plastics).

Yeah that is my question too. I will go look and make an offer.

When I looked it up it didn't provide the pic but I was not logged in either or putting it in as a registry, now I know. I did find out this product number is for the SSS and that there is another product number, one number off, for the HSS.

I'd pay maybe $1200, depending on how desperate I am. I'm the kind of guy who'd rather pay a little more for the new one, especially since that Pro has already been updated to the Pro II.

FWIW last month I sold a minty 2017 butterscotch/maple am pro tele with case, coa and candy on fb marketplace for 1100$
Had it at 1200, dude hit me at a grand. I told him 1100 was probably the lowest price in the country for that guitar, and he bought it

More questions if I may?

I did buy the guitar. Nice guy I will probably sell him a MIM with Tex Mex.

Hard shell flight case, and all the original white plastics and case candy were included.

As far as I can tell these look like the appropriate V-Mod Pickups. Ony difference is tint on pole pieces is blue not red. Anyone confirm?

Nice score!
Looks like that was probably preloaded, or the previous owner knows his ish.
