Your post reminded me of a hilarious post on the Raleigh NC CL a few days ago. Some guy had a "Squier 51" for sale, but listed it as a vintage Fender Esquire, and was asking $1200 for it. Someone had stuck a counterfeit "Esquire" sticker on the headstock and the seller claimed that the custom shop that did some mysterious mods for him said it was an Esquire and was worth $1200. He even said in an early ad that it was like Springsteen's on the cover of "Born to Run." He argued with people about it for several days on CL. I was never sure if the guy was a moron or a scammer, but sure did get a lot of laughs out of the thread.Every single person on my local CL thinks that their used item has somehow increased in value since they originally purchased it, especially if it has Squier or First Act on the headstock.
I mostly see people who obviously dont know anything about guitars selling their squiers. They dont mention the model, only take one crappy ppcture. One person said it was a Fender guitar and was worth a lot more but only selling for $150. It was a Squier and probably a bullet. It was a girl selling it for somebody. Craigslist has been pretty slim pickins for me but i still look sometimes. Once in a great while ill see something interesting but its rare. I live in Las Vegas, perhaps thats the problem, lol.Every single person on my local CL thinks that their used item has somehow increased in value since they originally purchased it, especially if it has Squier or First Act on the headstock. I never find anything that I would remotely consider a good deal, and I live in a relatively large Midwestern city.
Enjoy those sweet amps!
