    Hi All,

    There is a seller near me with a Daphne Blue Deluxe Strat (said to be mint condition) that comes with a 15-watt Peavy Vyper, gig bag, and instrument cable for $300 USD. I've been in the market for an affordable guitar to keep in my classroom (I'm a math teacher). This is a little more than I had hoped to spend, but I suppose I would have needed an amp as well as the guitar. The seller is firm on his price. So, what's the consensus on these Deluxe models? They sound pretty good from the reviews online, but maybe some of you knowledgeable people have some first-hand experience and opinions. ALSO, does anyone have any opinion on this amp? It feels like $300 is an acceptable price, but would like your thoughts. Thanks in advance. --Lyle

    Deluxes are pretty good guitars, I've got the pearl white one. Neck isnt quite as chunky as I like but that doesnt mean its slim. A deluxe in good shape will sell for around $250 used usually, so 300 with the other stuff is pretty reasonable I think.

    Here is my Squier “Rose” Deluxe:)
  4. Well as you know they're not making them anymore, so you'll have to rely on the used market like this one.
    Probably fair market value. Not over or under priced. I really like my metallic pearl version. Let us know.;)
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Seems like fair market value. It’s really spending a little more and getting a great deal or spending a little less and not even getting close. If you can swing it, a fair deal and you won’t be disappointed.

    The Deluxe is a good guitar. It comes stock with Duncan Designed Alnico pickups and a two point trem. I would put it close to on par with a VM.

    Always wanted one of those as its probably one of my favorite strat colors. I never got the Squire but the classic series 50s after saving a while since they were not available near me. Was out of stock due to be refilled but they never did. Wasn't meant to be I suppose.
