      Either that, or make him an offer. $500 seems a bit high to me for Korea.

        Has the headstock been refinished? It only says "Fender" on it...no "Stratocaster", no "contoured body", etc. Those look like the Squire tuners (rounded bottom, no "F"). And is that serial number legit? What about those abalone fret markers?

        I admit that I don't know a lot about Strats, but that just doesn't seem right to me.

        And, after all...it IS craigslist! I don't need to "be strong" to pass on that unless he is willing to knock off a couple hundred dollars and you can see and play it in person before buying.

            Yep, it's one of the MIK Lite Ash strats, great guitars, I would probably try to talk him down a little though, if you chew thru the straps that is.

              I have a MIK Lite Ash Telecaster, solid guitar as well. Wouldn't hurt to double check the serial, but Fender had those made in Korea from 2004 to 2009 if I remember correctly.

                Those were a good series. Slightly warmer than most Strats, so they would suit me nicely. I think these days, even $500 might be just a little high.
                I think this series just said 'Fender' for some reason.

                    I'm a huge fan of the MIK light ash series. Really nice players. Thought about picking one up a number of times.

                    I say shoot him an initial offer of $375 and be ready to meet in the middle at $450.

                    Here's his listing for the same guitar on Reverb: https://reverb.com/item/33387680-fen...4-08-light-ash

                      Why?

                      EDIT: Oh, because you assumed it was MIA and that's why it was such a "deal"?

                          Yep.

                          Nothing against Korean Guitars. Probably a dozen in this room. But at 500, not an epic deal. If it was a real USA, I'd be in the car on my way back breaking my 1 year vow already!
