  • What's a decent price?

    On other forums I frequent there's a section where members present a guitar/bass/drumkit/recorder etc and ask other members to put a decent price on the item. Usually members state the price they'd be willing to pay, so seller (or aspiring buyer) knows what to put on it.

    It happens I'm eyeballing another CiJ Fender strat, serial R 021460 (2004-2005) in near mint condition.
    Here's the ad; http://link.marktplaats.nl/316371749
    Seller is asking €650 ($882) no mention of case. Highest bid is €475 ($645).

    What do you think?

    I think you're getting into the price range of a used american standard. JMO.

      So? Too much in your opinion? I never played a '04/'05 CiJ so I wouldn't know what to expect. My '84 MiJ is a diamond. With this one I dunno...

          You have no idea what's inside ... you would have to see what's in it. That's where the MIJ's vary.

            I just wrote this long dissertation on why you should purchase the guitar, but when I went to submit the reply, I was logged off.

            So to sum it up, I feel $600 to $650 w/a HSC and an amp is a decent price for the guitar.

            Here is a photo of mine:



            Be prepared for a thinner neck though. I don't have the exact specs, but the '68 and '71 or 2?? neck is narrower than other MIJ strats.

            I own 2 CIJ strats and IMO they are as nice as my MIA strats. Great guitars

            Good Luck, looking forward to a NGD from you.

                    Thanks brothers, thanks Mike for the support, you won't be seeing any HNSD from me anytime soon. Funny how a deal can all of a sudden feel wrong. Needed to step away.
