    After a terrible couple of months, I can finally buy myself something nice. Trying to keep it to $500, but man now I’m the pickiest person on earth.

    Yeah you’re telling me I am flipping stuff and have some change too. The gentleman I bought my 93 Strat Plus from a few weeks ago has a Musicman Super Sport that is pretty nice I will most likely get.

    I know you are looking for an 80's Japanese guitar. Have you checked out Fernandes, Chandler or maybe FGN?

    Might have better luck than Fender

    Actually had one of these and could never quite gel with the Floyd rose. I’m sure it’s great, but so tough to get used to.

    The best $500 I’ve spent recently is my Squier CV50 fro Sweetwater. I like it so much I’ve bought another!

    Never quite had the urge for one, but I’ve heard they’re great.

    We just bought our 15 year old son a fiesta red vintera 50’s Tele. I’m actually super impressed with it and it’s got me considering buying a Fender guitar again.

    Yea, they’re beautiful. A bit outside my price range right now. But fiesta red might be my favorite fender color.

    Found this MIM on FB marketplace, but I don’t think it’s worth 500. I love that color, but would def want to change the pickguard and pup colors, and likely the pickups and wiring.
