    oh man, that's a sweet one. wish I could get it but I have too many strats already.

    btw, how do you know it's an SE and not a Standard?

    All the white SE’s had Pearloid guards and backplates. I suppose it could be a Standard that someone stuck pearl plastics on though...

    this is ten minutes away from me - it's a "pack" guitar CXS sn#, pearl PG & trem cover , no skunk stripe, 9.5 radius or wider, full size body thickness - " a pleasure to refine " ! ! ! !

    A Standard has "Standard" printed on the ball of the headstock. An SE says Squire Strat by Fender and nothing else. I don't think that color combo was used on Standards.

    nothing would fit - there would be double holes front and back ?

    I may be wrong but I think the SE has the back cover like this 1 has, with the middle screw holes straight across from each other. I think it's usually staggered on other models.

    My White SE was listed on GC as a Standard, too...when I told them it was an SE and should be priced at $80, they wouldn't budge on the pricing. I bought it anyway at the same price as that one. I'm glad I did...after all the overhauling I did to it, it's an AMAZING guitar!!!!!

    Yeah, I think it's sometimes OK to pay a little more than a guitar is "worth' if it's what I want. I payed $80 for my white SE but now that I have it I like so much that I would have paid more. I have about $160 worth of parts waiting to be installed. When it's finished I'll be into for much more than it's worth.

    This is the SE giveaway. They did indeed have the back plate hole straight across from one another while every other is staggered. I have had to fill and redrill 3 se backs for new plates.

    I hear ya! I'm the better part of 300.00 into mine but with that being said, I could not buy a new guitar like it for that. It's not for sale either, so far it's my first/only build. It's a keeper if only for that reason.

    You validated their errors in pricing and identification.
    Doesn't matter though.
    As long as you're content with it for what you paid.

    Well...think of all the times it has worked in the reverse...people get a total score because GC didn't know what they had? It's a low priced guitar either way and in the end, I end up with a piece of gear I absolutely adore.

    Yeah, I'm not saying it's a bad thing in the end, just how things work in the used instrument realm. Works the same in any direction. Got a semi rare piece of gear that no GC has in stock, and last 2-5 on ebay/reverb went for more than the norm? That must mean it's going up in value, which would help you on a trade.

    @Eddie asked a question recently about how much would you over pay for something you want that doesn't come up often. And I think the best answer for that is to look at how much is your time worth.

    If it saved you, hypothetically, 29 hours of CL/GC/ebay searching to find one that was $80, then it was probably a better use of your time/money to pay a little extra and move on with your life.

    I think similarly when trading stuff in. I recently lost, to my best estimation about $87 trading things in, instead of selling them myself. But I found a pretty good deal on a Blueshawk, which freed up my other P-90 guitar to become a mini-hum monster. Now, I'm free of a couple of amps that I didn't particularly love, and I have something I actually like.
