Just an interesting opinion that I've had for a while. The specific guitar(s) that I'm looking for second hand are the squier deluxe stratocaster($400 used), squier SE stratocaster ($300 used) or any good quality second hand MIK or MIJ. The problem is, these hardly ever come up, and if they do they are often overpriced or live on the other side of the continent. My favourite squier CV series is the 50's in white blonde, and these retail for $579 (and no-one's selling them used at the moment). This is more expensive than any of the used squiers that I am targeting. So my dilemma is, why should I pay more for a CV, (which in theory is kind of worse), when I can buy a second hand one? But even if I want to buy a second hand, these never come up. So shouldn't I give up the search? Any like minded folks out there? or just me.
