Well, for those of you who may have read these threads:

I went and tried it out today, and...

It was definitely not in "mint condition"

Here are the problems:

Fret buzz EVERYWHERE even when i raise the action loads, cable feels really loose in the input jack and cuts out whenever you touch it (yes I did try another cable!), tremelo block adjusted way too far forward, pots feel retarded and one of them sticks out LOADS, string alignment way out, it just looks like the whole neck has bent to the left, paint on the body, bridge really dirty.... Epic fail...

SO I gave m uncle (the seller) a call and said £200 seemed more reasonable considering it's condition and when I said that was my offer he just said "no" and said he "thought he'd put it on ebay for £300 and may accept £250"... MIM strats are £340 new! So, he said he'd take it to a music shop and have them sort out the problems because "he didn't expect it would cost much" and then put it on ebay.

Am I right in thinking that to sort out these problems would cost at least £50?

Where does epic fail come in, if you haven't actually bought it yet? I wouldn't pay two hundred quid for the guitar you're describing...I wouldn't pay TWENTY quid for it.

I DID play and I didn't even pay! He's going to try selling it on ebay for £300

I was pretty close to saying it was a piece of shit actually, but I wouldn't try to sell it for as much as possible because that's exactly what he's doing and in doing so is basically try to screw someone over, especially if he puts it on ebay saying it's in mint condition!

And I would've bought it for as little but he wouldn't even accept £200, he just simply said "no"... That was it!

Wait so this was the pay before play? In that case you don't fail, you just have a scammy uncle...

Update!

An MIM strat that was in better condition than this one sold on ebay for £204!

My uncle took his to a shop and they said it wasn't worth servicing and "all it needed was a clean up and it was fine as it is" which I find hard to believe. So he's going to put it on ebay, probably saying it's in "mint condition" which is gonna come back and bite him in the ass!
