Good CL deal?

    Those are generally 399.99 new, so as long as it's in good shape, with the additional items included, it's probably a "good deal". All depends on if the guitar is in good shape, and this is what you're looking for.

    That amp can be gotten for $60-70 and the CV for under $250 used easily And even $200 with patience so frankly I think it only an ok deal. If patient wait for a Fender MIM which can be had for $250-300 and grab a Mustang I for $60-70.

    You might look a long time to find one that lightweight. $300 would make me very happy around here because used CV '50s are not common. Heck, if I could sell the amp for $50, and if I liked those strings $325 would make me happy.

    Agreed, at 7.4 lbs it's worth more than a typical CV Tele IMHO. Most later ones were 8.5 lbs to well over 9. Adds value.

    Offer 300. Settle for 325 Imo.

    Guitar 200-300
    Amp 55-70
    Strings 45

    So 300-415 value. But really it's hard to get a deal on a classic vibe, usually priced a little too high, so if you like the guitar, it plays well, ect.. Do what feels right.

    I paid $125 for mine...from a shop.
    I did point out to the kid that it was not an Affinity, "whatever".
    I don't pay extra for light, a nice bag is more marketable ( 'does it come w/ a bag "could be the CL motto) as are the strings if they a name brand ( "recent set up w/ new DR strings", or at least throw a pack in when selling) and the amp is cool but they will eventually flood the market when the next "thing" comes along;if you need an amp OK but don't get caught up in it,think of it as a perk. I hate to dicker but I'm pretty good in the pinch. I really wound't consider this a deal but if you want it... Go look at it with $200 in cash,(don't even talk money on the phone) keep 50 back, show the $150 after playing it a bit and getting some time in the equation. Keep in mind the best that GC (or most any shop) is going to offer them is around $100 (half of half of new) for the guitar; nothing for the bag & strings and $25 for the amp. If they balk POLITELY say "best I can do", and calmly point out the above and start to leave, I bet they say Ok or counter with 200..then shoot 'em 175. I bet you get it for 175. Another option is to offer to let them keep the amp. and stay at $150

    No they are going to buy it in for $100 and sell it for $275 /$300. Mine came from a Mom & Pop, that took it in trade with a bunch of other stuff . Doesn't matter you need to focus on what a individual can get for something not what a chain is selling it for. At 350 that would sit around here, if its been up for more than a day owner is probably getting antsy, (this one has been up for a month!!) that Baja he has his eye on might get away, he need cash, you have cash, you are in the drivers seat.
