Lonestar, by far. 300 is a good price for that guitar and it's a great one to learn on. Resale will be higher than the squier as well.

In general, used guitars are a much better deal than new, and...

It usually ends up being a muddy, garbled mess. Passive filters drain signal at each step and a 3-band EQ is a lot to ask from the tiny, high-impedance signal from the pickups. You can try it but...

Vibramate only makes adapters for use with the USA (B3, B5, B7) models. It's plastered all over their website and product documentation. There is no B700 Vibramate.
