I am a drummer converting to becomming a guitar player. I have gone through several cheap guitars, and am looking to get into something a little better. I was talking to a guy at a local music shop, and he said that he would trade a vintage drum kit that I have for a '70 MIJ strat. He is asking $450 for the strat. I guess that I am wondering what people think of the strat? is that a good deal/ price?
If it's a really MIJ strat from the 70's, $450 would be a good deal, provided the guitar is in good shape. Just make sure it's not a Fender HM from the 90's.
I will have to take a closer look at it, but I think that it is from the 70's. What is the quality like on a MIJ strat?
