Re: Fender Strat Prices
Yeah, the only way you're getting a US strat for $600 is if it's used. Chains will usually go to 40% off list as their "take it or leave it" for the common customer. If you happen to know the manager personally or are a repeat customer that spends lots of money in the store, they will wiggle more for you, but only to a limit. Their systems will only let them go so low, and before they get near that limit they usually need some sort of approval.
I actually highly recommend the mexican strats if you replace the pups, they are a good value.
