Around $2-250. Less if it is one of the Squier series or black label traditional

That's about it unless it comes with a case.

yes i forgot to mention, the fender label is in black (still says fender and not squier). i've changed the bridge to an original fender bridge tho.

how much is it worth then? note that it's more than 15 yrs old..

let me know what you think! thanks...

200 bucks.... being 15 years old means nothing for the most part on most "production" guitars, especially high production guitars

HSC rules. Can get you and extra $50-$75 if it's a nice one. Gig bags are pretty much a throw-in in the used market. Since it's a black logo or a Squier Series, that's at least a $50 downgrade in my book. I can appreciate you changed the bridge but those trapezoid tuners are junk and if you change them out, you have to deal with all the screw holes.

Otherwise, you can find newer used MIM standards for around $250, and sometimes even less.

200 ? MINUMUM !
Just because it's old doesn't make it worth less. The early MIM's were some fine guitars and had NICE necks !!

I wouldn't take less than 250.

is that 161.61 GBP ?

But it's the low end of the MIM. For $250 you can get a MIM standard or MIJ standard which is a step up.

the three letter abbreviation for Japan is JPN not the first three letter of Japan. That is a racial slur.

because here in America during World War II J-A-P was used as a sort of racial slur, so it has a derogatory meaning to certain people, similar to using the N-word to describe people of African American descent.

No it still gets used the US in some circles and in some settings and people alive during that time. They are trying to phase in JPN.
