I was wondering how much a 1995 mim black strat with maple neck is worth. The guy that wants to sell me one for $260. It looks pretty clean. He just changed the pickguard into a alumunium one. Is it worth it? Do you think I can haggle him down?
yeah 260 is a pretty good price. they're usually around 500 in a store.
i look over the local craigslist pretty often and MiM's are usually asking 300 if it's just the guitar.
If everything works fine and there aren't any serious blemishes then that's a pretty good deal. Every once in a while I see a better deal than that but not by much. I've seen quite a few on craigslist for 250+ just by themselves and a few 300+ for the guitar and a hardcase.
