Ok ive got another thread about another guitar here somewhere. Anyhoo. We have a music shop that is closing and they have a used 2007 MIM Standard Strat for $299. It looks brand freakin new. I was told a customer bought it on a whim played it like 2 times then sold it to the shop. I looked it all over and it looks like it came right out of the box. Plays good too. Nice action. So does $299 sound like good deal?

If you like and/or need it, why not? It's not an amazing deal, but a hundred bucks is still a big deal.

Sure, sounds like a great deal. I love my Strat

sounds good to me.

I'd use the saved hundred to get a stacked humbucker in the bridge


Its the SSS configuration. But aren't they precut for humbuckers?

Yeah, but then you don't have to worry about getting a new pickguard, which I guess isn't really that big of a deal, but yeah...

Stacked humbuckers are single coil sized so they fit in a single coil pot.

They don't sound quite as fat as humbuckers, but fatter than singles. I like single in the neck though.

Sure. 300 bucks is a great deal for a newish MIM strat.
But, you can get them down to 200 on ebay, but they're used a bit more heavily.

yeah, exactly like.

I actually was planning to get a mexican strat, have a hot rail put in the bridge and maybe have the tuners changed to locking tuners, but before I knew it the cash I'd saved went on other things

i just got an hss strat and its really good. the humbucker isnt taht good but it gets the job done. mine was 350 brand new. You could probably haggle like 25$ off it.
