Yeah hi everyone,

Not long ago, a friend of mine gave me preposition.

depends what kind of strat. Is this a permanent trade or a temporary?

Cause if it's lke a squier strat i wouldn't bother, but if it's a jap or even a mexican (doubt that) then maybe.

But if your happy with your guitar why trade? People don't offer a trade to be fair, they get something out of it.

Toodles!

look at it this way - the ibanez "gio" range is their 'bottom of the line' and is probably around the same quality as a squier affinity/standard series (and probably even built in the same factory).

if the strat you're getting is a squier, if it's a deluxe, vintage modified or classic vibe it's probably worth the trade provided you like it more than your ibanez, and if it's a fender, then you need to be honest with your friend and tell him that his guitar is worth a lot more!

ultimately make sure you're allowed to play the strat first in any case.

No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

you still didn't answer the question: Is it a fender or a Squier and if it's a Squier, which one?

Yeah depends on the make, for all we know he got it from Argos and it's an "elevation"

you should maybe do a trial for a week.
Cause you dun know you love a guitar til you give it a fair go.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

if it was a squier it would say 'squier' on it where it usually says 'fender' making it quite obviously a squier..

Ask him what (if anything) it says on the headstock and/or the neck plate (the plate the bolts go through that hold the neck onto the body)
