    Hello! Could anybody tell me which could be a fair price for a 90s MIJ Fender Squier Series Strat? Few years ago I was able to see the in decend condition around 350 euros here in Europe, now there is a person in my area selling one for 800 euros!
    I'm going to see it in person as soon as he will respond me. Now, assumed thet 800 is too much for me (I just payed 700€ for a '95 Am Std) and if I like it, which could be a nice price to offer to do in your opinion?
    Thank you!

    No more than 300-350 euros....800 is crazy.....it's getting hard to find good deals the last year or so, everywhere.....

    Thank you, that was more or less the price range I had in my mind. I can try, but I doubt the seller will accept less then half the price. Perhaps I could wait and see if he will reduce the price..

    I may have said this before but this last 12 months or so asking prices have been all over the place and often ludicrous but when I look at Ebay the proportion of guitars that actually sell is far lower than I have ever seen. Things will get back to normal I'm sure.

    @Guitarmageddon @balston11 Finally I did it ;) the seller asked 800 (too much as you stated), in the end I bought it for 350 eur. The guitar was better in person than in the pictures, and the neck seems to be very nice!
    I was looking for complete specs for this MIJ Squier series (N serial), but I couldn't find anything special... Can anyone help please?

    That’s a more than decent deal with the hard shell case, congrats!
