    Hello...

    Just wondering if a purchase I am about to make off Craig's List is a sound one.

    1. Squier SE Special Strat Sunburst guitar
    2. Fender G-Dec Junior amp
    3. Guitar stand, cable, gig bag, knee rest.

    He's asking $60.00 firm for the lot. I've seen the pictures. All in good condition. He assures me everything works.

    What do you think? Deal or no deal?

    Amazing deal, you could flip all of that for like $150 or so

    Guitarmageddon, my fellow Canuck, you are ALWAYS quick with the responses. Thank you. And thank you for not ribbing me for posting this in the Strat forum. Been looking for the "delete" post button but cannot find it.

    Ok, I will get it.

    By the by, is the SE better than the Affinity? I mean Alder vs. Agathis and all that...

    body wood doesn't matter - thickness does - the SE's are full thickness, Affinity isn't....these also have a nicer chunkier neck back to front and are about 1.65" at the nut for width

    You better jump on that deal. I spent more than that on my Jr. alone.

    Yes that is a HUGE deal/steal you better go pick it up NOW before you lose it to someone else @Pierre008
     
  7. Yup generally speaking a chunkier neck, but I have at least one that is much more conventional in dimensions. A great buy for you if you can get it @Pierre008 ;)

    Cheers, Barrie.

    You guys convinced me after the first reply. I will meet the guy at a Starbucks in Burbank tonight and give you guys an update on condition and play-ability.

    Thank you all so much! Love this forum.

    Yeah do it.. That's actually a nice little amp too. I have one and it sounds good and has a bunch of settings including delay. Can get a Champ type tone or Metal tones.. Plus a drum beat with different styles. Oh and SE is a great guitar, Full thickness body and a good neck...

    I think my white strat body is an SE body and the neck is a Starcaster that appears to be the same as a bullet neck ( I could be wrong but i don't believe so)
    So this is basically a fully modded SE

    What a deal !





    I found an SE like this in a local pawn shop .

    It was priced a lil high but I was gonna make an offer anyway . Then I flipped it over and it had 2 giant dents in the back :( .. 1 in the neck and one in the body..

    SE is a great mod platform too. With a little work they are fine stock as well.
    Luck of the draw on fret sprout but that's an easy fix if there is an issue.

    Update: Bought it last night. Everything looked good. Clean. Lots of extras. Didn't have time to hook it up last night. Brought it to my office this morning. Going to see if it was worth the money. We'll be trying it during my lunch break.

    Since we met in a parking lot, I didn't get the chance to try it out. He assured me it all worked and told me to get back to him if it didn't. Not sure what recourse I have since all Craig's List purchases are "as is", but we shall see.

    I'm including pics of the purchase...

    There is absolutely no way this isn't worth $60, even if the electronics don't work at all on the guitar and even if the amplifier is dead.....

    Not a big fan of those newer ones..... but I would buy that deal every day!.

    Just the body would sell on eBay for 60-100 bucks. You did real real good! :)
