    I have seen a few of the Squire Starfire & Squire X-155 for sale every now and then but do not know much about them.

    Are they worth trying, owning or collecting?

    Were they well built or not so much?

    What would be a reasonable price to pay for each of them in very good to mint condition?

    Do they pop up for sale often?

    Thanks

    They’re fantastic instruments. They’re the same as “Dearmond” guitars from the late 90’s-early 00’s, when FMIC bought the company. I wanted one when they were new, but couldn’t afford one at the time. Then when they were just used guitars, I could have bought them for $200, but passed for various reasons. Now they hardly come up for sale, and they’re $3-500 (and worth it) If you see one locally and it’s not broken, grab it because they’re getting rare and expensive!

    I own a X-155 I bout it used in near mint condition for $450 came with original case. the thing sounds great the Duncan designed Humbuckers are hot. the only thing I am thinking about changing is the wooden Bridge to a Tom style. The one I have has nickel hardware. 20190522_164752.jpg

    After a long stretch of being off the forum due to health reasons. I thought I would check in to see what is going on and found this thread, can't resist in replying and 100% agreeing with "daan".
    Always like to show mine off. I have the Starfire in natural finish, bought new in 2003, and even with my health issues, it will never leave my hands for anything.
    Have missed you all, Old Man aka Mike

    The only draw back of the X-155 I have is finding another floating bridge that is the same size as the one that's on it. All of the other bridges are smaller in the saddle size not as long or as wide and the bridge size is to tall/high. And the post spaceing is also different.

    That Starfire in natural finish is one sweet looking guitar. It does kind of remind me of a Guild or maybe a hollow body Epiphone double cut. That's the first one of those I have ever seen.
