    E serial numbers seem to be very collectable if it's not a fake. Pickups obviously not original and what's the story with plate on the back? I wouldn't pay asking for it anyway.

    I love MIJ Fenders and Squiers, but $500 in well used condition with changed parts seems high.
    People balk at $1000 for mid '80s MIJ fenders in all original mint cond with better overall quality because they were double the price new.

    If MIJ Sqiiers are now collectors items, buy perfect collector pieces for the inflated price but pay user prices for non mint non original.
    IMO.

    MIJ fujigen squiers and fender are some of my personal favorites. I have an E7 strat That I adore, and Id love to have an E series tele. But 500 seems high even to me as a big fan of them. Their prices seem.... artificially high if you ask me. Theyre wonderful instruments on par with new fender stuff, but I think theyre still kinda obscure. I doubt theyll ever really be collectible, and if they do ever hit that point you'll to find someone who also seems them of that value. Personally, I wouldnt pay more than 400 for a fujigen squier or fender. I dont see them gaining value, I just see people putting high prices on them trying to justify their craftsmanship and rarity. They arent particularly rare either.
