Is it worth it? Its about 10 years old. The white finish has turned a bit yellow-ish. The pickups work pretty good and it could probably use a re-wiring job. But the neck is straight and smooth as glass.

Do you think its worth it?

Buy it if you have cash if everything looks good i would do it. Hell, if i had the money right now i would try to buy it.

if i trusted the seller, liked the bridge, heard it play, i would buy it.
imo, that's not exactly a bunch of money or a huge risk.

if uve got the money then sure it's worth it.

MIJs are great, though you find yourself replacing the pickups and tuners if they aren't good.

Even if it needs electronics work, it's worth it. That's a great deal on an MIJ. They're tough to come by.

MIJ strats are beautiful. I also love relic'd strats. The aged white/yellow colour is sooo good on vintaged instruments.

I'm assuming its fender. but some of the copies are decent and above par.

If the neck is great than I think you should go for it.

Then again you're the luthier, you'd know more than me. You work with/build guitars for a living. I make pizza haha

Cool. Thanks for the input guys. I really wanted to be sure that this would be worth it to buy. I dont mind doing some work to it but my first thought seeing it priced for $230 was "I wonder about the overall quality." So I'll probably get it. I know the guy and he will hold it for me so its not too much of a big deal.
