    Yeah, they have a bunch, I've been waiting for them to closeout. So far this is the only one to come up, but I'd bet more will come on sale since they are a discontinued model. They have some nice plus top ones I would probably buy if they go to $400.

    There are some in the UK for the same price (£399) brand new too

    I would buy one. About 2 weeks ago I wanted a backup to my MIM Standard Strat, this would be perfect but don’t have the money at the moment. Maybe if they’re still available at this price in April :D

    Yeah, I think they’re the Fender Standards. Trying to reduce price to replace them with the new Player series I think

    Don’t know why they’re trying to replace them, I love my MIM Standard I wouldn’t get rid of it even for a super expensive guitar

    I have 1 MIM. Not sure I really need another, but this is a good price. Temptation is great, but rack space is almost gone. :(

    Why can't i find this stuff when I go to their site? I have a membership there, but all I see is standard prices.

    Very legit, authorized Fender dealer, I've bought 3 Fenders, 2 Squiers, and 1 Gretsch all at good deals.

    I just sent the link to my cousin who has two boys playing. I sent them two cheapo's last year to get them started. Maybe it's time for them to upgrade. :)

    I agree ... even with the NYS sales tax, this is about the same price as a pre-owned MIM.

    Fudge !!!

    I've never bought any music gear from Adorama but years ago it was known as a retailer for camera gear and I bought (I think) some stuff from it. It was highly regarded I thought from camera geeks like me, which I was when I was younger and riding on that wagon train to the goldfields.
