I'm looking around for a new (to me) Strat. I went to a local Guitar Center to check out the new Performer Series when I came across a used 2004 American Strat that I really liked. I've had a couple MIM strats and an American Deluxe, but none of them played as well as this one. I would have taken it on the spot, if it weren't for one thing. There's a pretty big gouge in the back of the body close to where it meets the neck. I should have taken a picture. Otherwise, it's in pretty good shape. The price is $800. I'm not sure whether or not GC negotiates on used gear. Does it seem like a reasonable price or should I just keep looking?
