Used SQ Strat on GC website

  1. It's a little under the radar since it's not identified as an SQ. Not a screaming bargain, but in today's market $600 US isn't bad for MIJ Squier.

    I have had one for sale here locally for over a year at $600. Very little interest at all. Every so often I get someone that tells me I’m crazy. “It’s just a $100 Squier!” LOL
     
  3. I'll give you $200, cash money! ;)

    I've always wanted one, but they never come up at the right time (when I have cash). I especially want one that's not black, seems like most were.

  6. The uneducated only see the name "Squier" and not the history.

    Yeah, I get that. If they are being an a$$ about it, I just thank them for their insight and leave it at that. But sometimes people are just curious about why I am asking so much. I’ll send them some links that give the story of the SQ.

  8. The cool thing about buying used from Guitar Center is you can use their card and spread out the payments over 6 or 12 months depending on how much you're spending. Also, you get 5% back in store credits and if you're not happy with the guitar, you can return but you'll have to pay shipping unless there was some defect or a mistake on their part.

    There are a couple of SQ Bullets for sale near me. This is the better of the two, and he's asking $700 with a TSA hard case. The other one has been for sale for years at similar money. When you can buy a MIA Strat for that amount of money, I have to wonder what these sellers are smoking.

    This link is to FBM, but I think I could find it on CL if you aren't on FB.

    I recently recommended a guy on Strat-Talk buy an E5 Squier Bullet just like this but a bit later model, with nothing else and no case or bag (sunburst), for $500, I said go get it, the prices are coming up, and he went and got it for full asking price, and turns out it has Van Zandt pickups in it, huge upgrade. He's happy with it too for the price, quality wise.....

    I corrected my post above, since the guitar I linked to has a TSA case and not the Squier hard case. I guess the guy selling the similar guitar with the Squier case may have actually sold it. I think his last asking price was $670.

    I think prices for SQs will always fetch a higher prices than A or E series. I'm happy to hear that Guitarmageddon thinks that $500 is a good price these days. I've got several MIJ Bullets and one Strat from this period.
