£1,613.57. Bargain. I might get a back up as well at that price.

Who exactly are these meant to appeal to?

That’s pretty much how much a US made offset will cost you now. Guitar prices have shot up (in UK prices at least) over the last few years.

The JM Jaguars are now about £500 more than I paid for mine four years ago.

Dare I say that the £ & $ exchange has swung in such a way over the last few years that you could blame brexit for most of that £500 rise.

I was looking for a J Mascis just the other day, I cannot believe they are priced at £430 new! I've a '87 MIJ Jazzmaster that cost me £400 only a few years back, it's insane!

Ha, Yeah, well, I was avoiding using the B word as I know I have a tendency to blame pretty much anything and everything on it Laughing

But, yeah, you're probably right.

It's hilarious, they aren't worth half of that amount and we all know it.

They will just lose customers in a market that is already naturally in decline.

Fender - the new Gibson.

About right.

A design that was almost dead and buried was made popular again by poor musicians but now they can't afford one because Fender are cunts.

Just like Gibson and they got everything they deserved.

Prices have risen everywhere: you have to pay around €400-450 for a Squier VM Jazzmaster/Jaguar and 500-550 for a J Mascis here in Italy. I remember the street-price for a Squier VM was around €250-300 back in 2009-2010 when I started playing.

Used to be swings and roundabouts... I remember the 80s when Jazzmasters and Gretsches were were cheap and what the cool 'fringe' bands could afford when all the popular bands had Jackson and Ibanez shredders. Then in the 90s the shredders were cheap because teh Kurtz. But now there is no real counter culture in guitar music (or life in general) and every thing is marketed like a big homogenized in-demand commodity.

^^^True
Also Fender was(still is) in a bad place a couple years ago and it raised prices on everything. Almost all Squiers grew in price, VM models started to cost as much as Classic Vibes had cost, and Classic Vibes now cost as much as Mexican models used to cost.

By the way, I think it's high time to buy used Classic Vibe strats as you can still find them rather cheap. In a couple of years they'll be going for ridiculous money too. One day when even your neighbour is a shoegazer playing a jag, everyone will be re-discovering strat.

While prices are going up, you need to admit that general quality of cheap guitars got better in last 15 years. They are as good as expensive ones minus setup, pickups, tuners, etc.

i had my jazzmaster valued recently and was shocked to see that its worth about £1K less than a replica "master built" or customer shop version that is new and made now.
