    IMO the middle picture looks the most like an actual Burgandy Mist. That color can and does vary, but it's based on *burgundy* which leans toward red instead of blue. The most egregious violator was the Squier Classic Vibe Strat in "Burgundy Mist," but was actually an intense metallic purple.

    Not $479. It was $459.

    Sales guy said it was the fastest they've ever sold a traded in piece of gear. In at 10AM and sold at 11AM.

    I beg to differ. You're looking at BM after 50 years of fading and yellowing nitro. This is how dark and purple it was when new in the 60s.These are both actual 60s instruments, and look a lot closer to the CV Strat you complained about than the pink you think is the right color.

    Nice score. Ever since I saw a CS Jazzmaster in that color, it's been growing on me.

    Guitar Centers used gear is worth perusing here and there. They can be pricey on new gear but a lot of times they’ll be under value on the used stuff.
    The online site isn’t great for navigating and I think people tend to look elsewhere but here and there you can find high end gear from lesser known makers vastly underpriced because Ron Kirn and guys like that aren’t well known by the guitar center crowd.

    What is funny is that GC originally sold the guitar to the original owner who is the same person that traded it in. They know it wasn’t stolen so why a hold? Their house, their rules I guess.

    Out of my four Telecasters, this one sounds best through my 5E3 Tweed Deluxe.

    Great timing and an excellent buy. Make some noise. Play like you stole it.

    Be careful. If they don't find out it's been stolen by next Thursday, they will reenter it as stolen from GC. <g>. Nice guitar!
