I think so, you can probably find a decent american standard strat for around $675 used.

All new Fenders are overpriced when you compare them to the midrange Ibanze line.

I bought my Big Apple Strat brand new for under $800.00 (with case) five years ago. It's made in Corona as well. Top quality Strat. You could try and talk 'em down.

$875ish US is a little high, but not too bad for a minty American Deluxe. That is, if you want that model. The only significant difference from the American Strat is the noiseless pickups (and some really ugly colors) ... which you could add for less than the price difference. Personally, I prefer the American Strat -- I just picked up another one (2006) brand new for $800 US, used would be much less.

Here is a link that should help you date the guitar:
