My local MGR has a MIM Strat for $250. Thing is, it's the most comfortable Strat I've ever played - sounds great, too. Looks ace - dark red with nicely aged parts, tinted amber neck, clay dots. Nicely worn in as well.

Pros: good price (could get $300 on eBay), one of only 2-3 strats I've ever felt comfortable with, sounded great for every style I tried on it

Cons: already have tons of great-sounding guitars, strats are boring old man guitars, should probably use the money towards getting my duo-sonic refretted

Should I DEW IT?

Dew it. If you like it, then do it. If you wanna make a few bucks, then do it. If it's one of the only strats you like, then do it, since, you'll probly never find one again...

TRUE - A few years ago, a different store had a black strat that was TRANSCENDENT - I still regret not getting it.

I sold a few guitars that today haunt my dreams... If I told you what they were, you would kill me just on principle.

if you don't have a guitar with middle/neck pickup combo go for it, strats have the best 3 pickup combo. ever.

Get them down to $200 and do it. If they won't go down on price, get them to throw in a hard case, gig bag, cord, or tuner (pedal tuner!).

LULZ - some kid spent half an hour trying to do this yesterday. They actually have a firm policy that they won't throw in a hardshell for any guitar under $350. I'm going to get them to throw in strings and a full set up, though.

I'm not sure actually - the tag says standard, but the neck is more like the 60's classic version - whatever, it'll be mine soon!

dark red doesn't help much trying to pin down what series MIM it is.

50's classic strat is fiesta
60's clsssic strat could be dakota or candy apple depending on the year

they made those satin strats for a while...like wine red satin....could be that...thlose are late 90's early 00's

I think............classics are the great "C" necks...any others...ie this reissue that reissue....50's 60's are different necks.

yes/no rob?

get the serial number and it's easy enough to check.

Wine red was my thought, but those all have satin necks stock as far as I know...

As I was looking at pictures, I think it's actually the "chrome red" that the standards come in. It's probably been treated to darken it in some way, like I suspect the neck has.

Oh well, whoever did it did a great job.

Erm, I sorta wouldn't do it. Mostly because of my situation. I bought this super awesome Squier II strat thats like glossiest neck ever for 100 bucks. Great sound and all. But now I wanna get rid of it because I don't play it much and its a BoRiNg dakota red strat. Which of course isn't too hard to do.
