As some have noted £400 is probably the average 2nd hand price of a Mex Stamdard. They are not IMO worth more given the specs. They are however a good platform for upgrading. I have a 2012 but spent a fair bit replacing the ceramic pickups, trem block, machine heads etc. Plays great now. 🙂👍
This ☝️ pretty much!
Just as long as it doesn't have a signature on the headstock, change stand that! I know who they are! Don't need their moniker ruining a perfectly good headstock. Take note Mr Mascis, Marr, Blackmore etc! 🤣
UK based? You should try Charles Guitars https://www.charlesguitars.co.uk/ . That's where I get all my parts. They have a good selection of stuff that'll get your partscaster build looking authentic. Do a lot of Japanese compatable stuff i.e. Gotoh! See below:👍🙂
