They're not that great anyway. You're just paying for the name.

A well made Squier is as good as an American Fender.

No.


All Fender's went up in price, I think. I know the MiM basses did.

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

i didnt say they are dropping, but have you been outside your house int he past 5 months? the stock market is down 44% and no one is spending money. you would think fender would say "hell, it costs us 100$ to make an american strat, maybe lowering our high as hell price would bring more people to buy one"

I've given up on fender

^It doesn't cost them $100 to make an american strat.

and TS, have you ever heard of supply and demand?


[/thread]


yup, and right now, there is little demand so price NEEDS to fall.

how do you know demand is down?


just because the market is slumping it doesn't mean there is less demand


that is a false syllogism

Where does it say that there's little demand? Yes the stock market is down, we all know that, but that doesn't affect people's choices in guitars all too much. If someone wants an american strat, they're going to save up and get one it's as simple as that. I doubt that there has been little if any fluxuation in the sales of american strats in the past year.

And again, this has no relevance at all. Not EVERYONE is in this situation, and like I said, the demand for guitars is always going to be there. It's one of those industries that just doesn't suffer as much as everyone else.

That makes complete and total sense. In opposite world.

Wizards? is genius. Demand is forcing the rates up. I'm must've been to six or eight GCs and dozens of other music stores since Christmas, from Greensboro NC to Austin TX. They were all packed full of people. I waited for over an hour to pay for a MIM Tele. The stock market average being lower than normal has little to do with the price of an item that was fairly inaccessible to many workers to begin with.
