    Hi,

    I've been kicking myself ever since I sold my Squier Strat 60's Vibe a few years ago. I want to purchase another. The going online price seems pretty much fixed for all online stores.

    Has anyone been able to get the online seller to discount a new Fender/Squier in a way to make it worth it? I'd like to knock 15% off the online advertised price.

    Or - has anyone dealt with an online store that has given away enough other stuff - case or gig bag - to make it worth it?

    Which online stores seem to offer the best discounts or kick in free stuff?

    Thanks.

    Musicians Friend will usually knock some off if you call and say you're looking for a deal on an item. They just can't publish below the prices Fender sets but they do have some room to negotiate.

    $386 for open box on eBay.

    Sterling by MM Cutlass $279 NIB at MF might scratch the itch.

    I like Sweetwater. I like how they let you choose from more than 1 of their Classic Vibes and other higher end Squiers and provide pictures and weights. To me that has value, even if you can't talk them into a discount.
