    GC online comes through again. They had this listed as a Standard Strat with no pictures at $299. This model is $824. 2017 model. Now I wait.

    I'll probably flip it or steal the body for one of my other Strats but I can't pass a good deal. These are selling used for $5-600 on ebay.

    "How DO you DO it?"

    I go to the website and look lol. If I see something at a decent price with no pics I call the store and ask for some. Very often it pays off.

    I've bought a dozen or so MIM and USA guitars from them online used in the last year. They are very often mislabeled.

    i think the 50's and 60's classic and player series are great instruments and worth the price but congrats on your find.

    The way USPS has been delivering everything late the last few months I'm not sure when it will actually arrive. Had it sent to my local GC so it's not sitting on the front porch.

    Nice find!

    I wonder did someone trade that in and get a really bad deal on it if that's what they are selling it for:confused:

    I've been playing around with a virtual guitar builder and I think I may put the black pickguard from my black strat on this one.
