Does anyone know where i can get a American Strat for less than $800?

p.s. My guitar teacher says any guitar less than $1000 isn't worth buying. Is this true?
#2
your guitar teacher is retarded and you cant unless you buy used
#3
Of course it's not true. I suppose your guitar teacher also sells guitars. What type of guitar do you have and how long have you been learning. That's not a rational statement your teacher made. How old is he; 16?
#4
Wow your guitar teacher is pretty moronic to make such a statement. And you'd have to get the Strat used.
*Taylor 214ce Acoustic
*Fender Highway One Honey Blonde Strat (Fralin Pickups)
*Epiphone Zephyr Regent (Gibson '57 Humbucker)
*Vox 847 Wah
*Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET
*Fender Blues Deluxe Amp

that type of narrow attitude sucks in a person posing as a teacher and role model.

It's not true.

But I am selling a USA strat for 750.

Where you live, bro?


I watch dateline. That would be illegal. Put it up on Ebay and tell me about it then we'll see.

Selling directly from one person to another isn't illegal. The notion is silly.

Highway 1 Strat is essentially a MIM Strat that's assembled in the US. They also use "satin" finish paint (flat) that's not really that appealing to me. Highway 1s are kind of a marketing ploy more than anything. A nice MIM Deluxe Strat is the way to go in that situation.

If you want a new MIA Strat for $800, look for blems, display models, and discontinued colors/models. The average is about $1,050 new.

And your guitar teacher is an idiot or an elitist, which also makes him an idiot. Schecter makes great guitars and their top of the line axes sell for $800 new.

That was pretty obscure, since we weren't talking about sexual predators. But in all reality, you take a risk anytime you let anyone know anything about you. Same thing over eBay - you still have to give him an address to ship to. He could still come to your house in footie pajamas with a sack full of some dirty rags, chloroform, astroglide, and plastic handcuffs, but that's just the risk you take.

Ok I think I'm done talking about that. I just won't make anymore references at all. SOrry guys.

You take the same risk using any Inet store. Most "hacker safe" sites ain't hacker safe.
