So I am about to return to the U.S (I've been deployed overseas for the past six months)
One of my buddies is lazy and doesn't want to carry back his Fender MIM Standard Strat. It has a hardshell case and the David Gilmour EMG-DG20 pickup set. Guitar plays amazingly. I've used it a handful of times. He blocked the tremolo, but I was told it's an easy fix to get back to stock (I want the use of a tremolo)
I jokingly offered him $250 and he accepted. Based on my limited eBay/Musicians Friend research, that's an amazing deal.
Should I take it?
I've only been playing since Sept. But having looked at a lot of Strats for sale on forums, Craigslist, eBay, etc., IMO $250 for a mexi-strat with EMG pickups is a steal. The case alone is probably worth $75.
If it were me, I'd snap that sucker up.
