  • Closing Deal on Strat

    Hey guys, I've noticed some very honest opinions floating around when others are considering a purchase. Browse this one and see what you think. 1989 USA Strat with case. I am a player, not collector, but I do appreciate guitars in great condition. $625 gets it to my front door. Good Deal, or no? Thanks for your time!

    It's hard for me to tell. Those pics look like postage stamps on my computer.

          Tiny on my pc as well and I had to relly strain!!IMO I think you could do a lot better than getting a '89 strat for that amount. I have a feeling it may even be a MIM one. If I was you I would consider getting a US Highway 1 strat which you should be able to pick up for a lot less than that one. If you could provide some more info on the guitar or even a link some of us could give you a better opinion.

            but other than that, i think you could get a better deal on ebay. if not, around there should be ok, but if you wait you could get a better deal.

              eBay prices for Strats are totally outrageous! Consider a brand new US HWY 1 Strat can be yours right now from Musician's Friend for only $599.99.

                Appreciate the feedback on the strats. I had to shrink the file sixe to post for some reason. They are both USA, headstock verifies that much. I dont realy like the HWY 1's that much, but have considered that option. I have spoken to some other axeheads and they have unanimously said that 1979-1995 are the better post-CBS production years. Something about the newer strats just seems light or cheap. The HWY 1's are post-production USA, but arent all the other parts MIM. From what I understand, they make everything there, and assemble in CA. Not totally sure, but something to that effect? I have been watching the trends of Strats on eBay and it is definitely a buyer's market. In fact, I contacted people whose strats didnt sell, and these are their deals. I shall not make a hasty decision, like you have all warned, good things come to those who wait. Thanks again for your time and input!
