I went to a pawn shop on sunday with my dad looking for some MIM strats and I saw this '95 MIM Standard Strat in black in great condition didn't see an visible damage but it didn't have a case. But this strat was listed for $499!!!! can you believe that!! Anyways the guy said that it was 40% off so it would come out to $324 which I think is still high. I'm planning on going back tomorrow and negotiating for a lower price because I do really want this strat so i could mod it rather than buy a new one for $499 and still having to put more money into it (i love to mod). If I do end up buying this strat not at the price listed but hopefully around $200 do you think I will have to swap the tremolo and springs. I am planning on swapping the neck and getting a robert cray one off eBay and also getting some different pups.
