Almost the same thing. Sort of.

But I do love BJ's. Great amps.
Everyone likes BJ's.

Haggle down to around 330 or lower, unless it's almost brand new.

$400 sounds just a little high. I got mine for $350 used (with a LOT of extras) and a local guitar store was selling a 2009 MIM new for $420.

If it's just the guitar for $400, it's not a very good deal. If it comes with a hard case or something of the sort, I'd offer $350.

If you can get the Serial #, you can learn a lot about it. For example, late 90's MIM Strats have more powerful pickups than newer MIM's.

If you do get the serial, decode it here:

I paid 300 for mine. I'm looking to add to my collection and I've haggled a few down to $200. I've found that to be the minimum in my search. There is a sell in my area at Music & Arts for 349.99. And, my local Guitar Center is selling new for 399.99. I won't pay 400 for it used. $300 is as high as I would go for a used but you should be able to haggle for something lower.

At that price you may as well go for a brand new one. You should be able to get one for that price or less with a bit of haggling. A few shops are still selling last years models off cheap.
