: The heit deluxe sunburst fender telecaster guitar was sold at sears roebuck centers in 1972-1976, then after came honher and harmony soon after toward the mid 80's and then kima in early 90's. The heit deluxe sunburst guitar is not worth fixing at all although it is vintage it is as worthless as an old black and white tube rca TELEVISION, you know the ones you see getting thrown away. Toward the end of the tiesco hayday they were given out at carnivals for prices such as konai island and other east coast amusements. There is one model (the one with the bigsby tremelo) that has an original metal plated stamp up on the top of the neck, this particular model is worth about $200-250, another interesting fact was the sears roebuck corp. carried these guitars on the east coast as for as west coast and midwest carried hohner and harmony and at one time even FENDERS! The necks warp very easy on these heits and most likely 9 outta 10 ive seen have major buzzing from incaved frets and cheap woops. The guitar was produced in taiwan at that time and costed $3 to make at that time and year. Thats why they were goven out for pennies for prizes.

you are crazy.....these are wild guitars and great sounding.
They are perfect for today's punk and grunge bands. They are not shredders but the tremelo arm is wicked!!!!!
Bottom line, these are collectables!!!!
They are easily going in the Hundreds of $$$$$$$

I just bought a Heit Deluxe telecaster in TV yellow. This guitar sounds amazing. It has a real vintage 70's sound. People are really crazy about it and are offering me hundreds for it. I haven't seen another one like it anywhere. I don't think there were many made or maybe not many left, but they're hard to find.
