    Some one local is selling a red MIK strat that's say unplayed for 20+years. Asking $100 assuming the neck is not warpped from heat or humidity issues. Is this a good deal for.one of these guitars?

    $100 for any playable guitar is a good deal if you like it and want it.

    Squier I'm guessing? If it's playable, you like it, that's a good deal. Like ^he said.

    I just picked up a strat (bullet squier) for 99 bucks yesterday. Very smooth and feels nice. I was looking for a maple neck tele but couldn't turn away from this. Go for it if you like it

    I'd say that's a good deal. I have a 1990 MIK Strat and it's a lot better than a modern Bullet or Affinity imho. Very nice comfortable neck.

    You should be aware it's likely plywood under the thick finish, which makes for a heavy guitar and some people will turn their noses up at, but it's never bothered me.

    As mentioned it's probably a plywood body, the necks are nice but for $100 you could get a newer Squier that has a solid wood body and just as good or better electronics and hardware.
    Jack Pearson has been playing some of the stock Squier Affinity Strats for a while now and he sounds great on one.

    Jack Pearson interview I watched, he described his as a 90 Korean?
    Whatever, I have a 95 and it was love at first grip. great neck. it weighs 7 lbs same as my 2014 Tele. I paid 40 in 03 for that 95 mik
    I think 100 for any Squier is good today.

    I see used newer Squire Strats regularly for much less than $100, they retail for $199.

    There are so many models, some solid bodies some ply, quality parts/crap parts etc etc, the early E10's are my favourite.
    Go for silver or gold logo rather than black as they are normally the best one but you really need to do your homework to find the good ones.

    $100 is about right if it's fully functional.
    Play it. I played one years ago and the neck felt really small to my taste.
    Check it out.
