I am traveling and spent a day looking through some pawn shops for a used Strat. I found a Fender in a cluttered little shop, the price tag on it was $825. I’m thinking American Std.....no.... it was a MIM. It didn’t feel good at all and the gap at the back of the trem was huge. It sounded like plastic unplugged. At this point, I am I am pretty much in shock. The shop guy came over and asked if I was interested. I said yes, but a new MIM was about $750. He looked a little gruff and asked what I was looking to spend. I said about $350. He said that’s too low. I told him thank you and left. I don’t think I would have given 350 for that one.... it was really fishy feeling. I wonder how he figured it was worth 825?
