Yes. Never played one, but they normally go for much more than that I think.

Decided against it. The pickguard is broken, and it needs new tuners, but the pawn shop who listed it doesn't want to go down.

I would still pay that for it if the neck is nice. They fit tele neck pockets and have a nice glossy finish. I've owned two, an early 80s MIJ and a late 80s MIK.

It's a wee bit steep, but the necks on those Korean Squiers are nice. Not quite as skinny as a CIJ Mustang, but thin and smooth with an old-school radius. The tuners are likely to be "two peg" types rather than one screw on the corner, so finding like-for-like replacements might be tricky.

What else? Hmm...the bridge plate and screws don't look original to me. I'm just going on one example that I owned back as a teenager...I bought it second-hand twenty or so years ago, and sold it on to someone here who doesn't seem to post any more.

fuckin yeah dude, the pickguard cut between the pickups and the controls is tight as hell too and one of the biggest things i miss about owning a jaguar (and a working cyclone (that i still need to get my shit together with and save up $150 for the electronics and pickguard replacements i wanna do))
