I love this. I'm a fan of the less-traditional Strat colors.

Sorry I can't help with an evaluation tho

Hey greg,

I don't know about a used price, but the sources I've read all said that it sold for 55,000 Yen brand new, or about $600 dollars.

yeah the guy wants $700.

i'm thinking closer to $500.

it has a bound neck, and i haven't seen many. but just because i haven't seen one doesn't make it worth $200 extra to me.

EDIT:

Sells used for 325 Euro, or $430 USD. It's a 50th Anniversary limited run that's made out of 5-piece basswood, shit pickups, but a pretty sexy V-shaped bound neck. I'd pay the $430 for that sexy neck and drop it on another MIJ or CIJ Body.


Double EDIT: Official color name: Shell Pink.

Hope you like them.

That squier is actually a really nice guitar and is getting rare these days. You hold on to it.

Relic'd ST57. Man, if I wasn't saving the cash to fund my other hobbies. Why do I even have other hobbies!

Thanks, been holding onto both the Squier and the Tokai for the best part of 25 years now, they ain't leaving anytime soon!

As already mentioned, that's a limited run, kinda like the MIJ Epi Elite series that I posted in the LP thread.

As a reference, the '62 RIs I posted above were $300-350 new in 2007 (close-out for the Nitro over Poly base) when I bought them in Japan. I wouldn't go over $400. Check out Yahoo Japan / Jauce.

You should include the Squier JV and SQ Strats and Teles in your hunt. There are case queens still available like the one I posted above.

thanks. from the looks of the rest of the guys ads he's high on this one too. i just thought the bound neck was cool, haven't seen it on a mij before this one.

i've got a few things on my radar.

how close to fiesta red is coral? it looks close.

I've had them in 2 Strat before already




They're great if you want a more mellow sound. I found that I liked the 57/62 set more for my classic strat sounds, and the Samarium Cobalts for more modern stuff.

I put an all white mim Strat with a maple neck on layaway at a local shop. I'll pick it up sometime in the next week. I've been in to play it a few times, lol. They have no problem with me doing that, or anyone else for that matter.( not mine ) I am a little worried I might now like so much the "gloss" on the fretboard. I may end up seeing about a satin finish if possible. I would have liked very much an American made one, but, this mexican Strat seems pretty nice. And it's gonna look soooooooo nice next to my metallic black guitar.
