Not sure if this is where to post this, but... Is there any general 'Rule of Thumb' as to how much to pay/offer for something at a pawn shop? That is, if you ask how much and the guy says, say, 100 bucks, does the 2/3 rule apply here? Half? The reason I ask is because I was passing by a pawn shop, went in, and they had a little mini Squire Strat (cute, obviously a kid instrument). I think it'd be fun for my boy (7th birthday coming up), but with that real short scale will it keep itself in tune, will the strings be floppy? Anyone know the good/bad/ugly on mini guitars? Any idea what one is worth (didn't pick it up, appeared to be in pretty good condition). Any help appreciated, TIA.
