An excellent deal...for the seller!
I'd buy it in a heartbeat...
...If I didn't have a soul.
I'd buy it just for the suade.
i sent an e-mail asking for pics. i'm curious as to what this guy sees in the Squier to make him ask so much.
It does come with a few extras, but...
I wonder how he/she came up with that price? Surely its WAY more than originally paid? I wasn't aware that Squiers appreciated in value so quickly. I think I'll go out tomorrow and buy up a bunch of $100 Squiers, real quick like. I see $$$$.
Its a bunch of "starter" gear, all going at the same time.
I'm guessing that mommy and daddy bought it all, little Johnny or Suzy never learned to play and really doesn't even know what any of it is worth.
I paid about $300 back in 2003 for a Squire Affinity Series P/J Special bass, as well as a Fender 15 watt amp (with eq!!!), 12 or 15 Ft. Monster cable, Soft Shell Gig Bag, Korg Tuner, Learning Book with CD. Mine even came with a Fender Guitar strap!!!
I'm sure prices have gone up in the last 5 years, but that's just a silly price.
I saw this ad this morning too and LOL'ed. You would be better off driving to Musician's Friend's outlet and having them pull you a brand new Squier from the back.
$300 would be pushing it for all that "gear."
i'd offer him $150. tops
I suspect the person added another number zero into the price by mistake.
Here's a data point. The Squier "Get Playing" pack which includes similar stuff. 4 string versus 5 string. Gig bag versus hard case. $299.00 NEW
Here's the link: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/prod...ass-Pack-With-Fender-Rumble-15-Amp?sku=513295
Put together you're own pack and add $100 for a Squier 5 string (estimate and a much better bass). Another $50.00 for a hard case (if that is a requirement) and your at about $450.00 NEW. Here's what I mean:
More math. Squier 5 string bass between $200 - $300 depending on the model. Fender Rumble 15 with 3 band equilizer is 129.00. Your now at $329.00 -$429.00. Fender Gig Bag, $29.00. Your now at about $360.00 - $460.00. Other accessories add no more that $100.00 (very generous). This brings you to $460.00 - $560.00 for NEW equipment. Still a couple of hundred dollars below $800.00.
AND....you get the excitment of GASing because you have MANY choices with basses, amps, bags, straps, etc.
I'd show the seller this information, link and offer $150.00 - $200.00 (if after checking out the bass appears to be in good enough shape). Get much past $200.00 and you got to start thinking about new.
One more thing, try a little research. This took me about 15 minutes.
My 2 cents.
I was aware it was vastly overpriced. I only posted here for a chuckle.
Either my ability to identify sarcasim is weak or my "funny bone" is worn thin tonight.....oh well!! Kids will do that to you sometimes.
It is pretty funny! I just hate seeing people being taken advantage of.
i wouldn't buy it... but i would offer a trade for my broken 1991 arion bass distortion
alright. pictures are here, but be aware, it's in flash. see for yourself. worth 800? hmmm...
