    That’s the reason I’m selling my Standard Strat lol. Hopefully it’s not a dud but I doubt it will be.

    $300 seems perfectly reasonable to me. Don't sell yourself short!

    There are many flaws in these. The nut on that one is honked up, but I lucked out because it's close to being the best action of all my guitars. Very low and a soft touch.

    I have never in my life been comfortable with bargaining. It's a game I just do not like to play. I was first exposed to it in Bangkok, 1972. Jewelry store with not a price tag in sight, just pads of paper and pencils on the counters.

    Ever see the barter scene in Python's Life Of Brian? "Ten for that?, you must be mad!"...

    That’s what I got mine for (minus another 60 Amazon reward bucks). Love it!

    I've seen other threads where people speculate the tops are printed. I looked at thepix of different colors and the grain is different.

    Maybe some are/were, but reading the descriptions closely, I suspect they are veneer. Body described as 'wood', neck described as 'maple', top described as 'maple wood'. Sounds like veneer to me...

    There are 3 different people who have posted photos of the thinline tele type, and they all have the same pattern to them. The seller/company had admitted that some of their guitars have a printed design. I think the pattern just isn't the same for all colors. I do think everyone will get one that looks just like the photo in regards to the flame or quilt pattern, for whichever color they order.

    Basically, all the guitars are going to look exactly the same as the photo, minus finishing flaws.
