    In Louisiana at a small shop they have a red MIM standard with one of the best maple necks I've ever seen for 299. I know that's no help but they are out there. 2007 I believe. I'm one of the weird guys that don't like red or it would be home with me.sorry just remembered it was a strat. I'll show myself out now.

    I'm looking for Rosewood, non ashtray bridge.

    Also, the extra rolled edges concerns me that the e strings will fall off edge of board. I've had that problem before with overzealous fret bevels/rolled board edges.

    "This on had some extra sanding on the neck near the first fret resulting in extra rolled edges."

    :D Thanks, that was helpful. Lol

    Seriously tho, it was helpful, because besides a very few outliers like this, MIM prices used and new are insane to me now.

    I saw Muddy Waters's Tele in person at the Metropolitan Museum's guitar show. It was a lot darker than Dakota red and not very professional-looking.

    It was allegedly CAR, and to be fair, it was a repaint over white a loooong time ago.
