Is this pricing a mistake or am I done buying guitars forever?

    The OP is looking at fenders retail price that no-one uses. Affinity squires are around $419 AUS in most stores.

    I thought it was because the pickup polarities had to be reversed due to the change in the Earth's magnetic field...

    A few months ago I found an LP on sale, half price. When I came home, my wife looked at the price tag and said «ONE LP COST THAT MUCH?!». Didn’t dare to tell her it was on sale.

    I guess it’s all relative…

    Guitars have always been incredibly expensive in Australia and South America.
    Brazil is even worse... hearing about people paying nearly $60k for a Toyota Camry that we can get here for $30k.
