howdy ya,ll . i found a mik squire strat this morning at a local pawn shop , comes with a hardshell case. cosmetics around 7-8. they have $179 on it but i,m pretty sure i can get it for $125 - 35 . i didn,t have time to try it out so i,m not sure about the electronics , neck and frets look good just a couple dings on the back of the neck . pickup poles are a tad rusty as are the pickguard screws. tone knob has been replaced . what i am asking i guess is this a fair offer to them and me. i don,t know if you read the serial numbers like a tele or not so if anyone of ya,ll could help out please jump in. sorry for so little info but i was in a hurry and this is the best i have for now . going back monday and talk with them about it .
