    To be fair the Buy It Now prices are stupid but the starting prices on the Squier is only $300.
    I also notice with an hour to go, that no one has bid on either.
    The MIM is ridiculous for $750.

    Naww.....those are the MSRPs listed on the Fender site.
    Nobody sells a MIM Tele for a grand.

    A Standard Telecaster (MIM) is 500 bucks at Musician's friend.

    I feel awful every time I start complaining...someone always has it worse than I.

    I'm paying $4.13 a gallon. But since I ride a bike, a fill up (from bone dry) is ~$16.52.

    You must be paying close to twice that.
    You have my respect, sir.
