Walked into one of the local pawn shops to do the usual quick scan of gear. Found this classic vibe 60’s strat for $70!! There were a few of the standard series squier Strat’s there for $220 and up, this one must have been tagged wrong. I grabbed it pretty quick.

You shoulda offered them another $130 for that Silverface in the background. A nice round $200 for a gigging package.

Yeah they definitely screwed someone on this one, what did the person sell it for $40?? Either way I wasn’t complaining.

Yeah that’s a 72-73 non master volume super reverb, looks original from the outside at least. They want $1249 for it but with the crazy taxes here it brings it to almost $1500. Which I guess isn’t that bad if it worked 100%

Woohoo ! Nice grab ! How's the neck on a 60's. I let go of a nice 50's CV because of its skinny neck.

Paid double what you paid, but more than doubled it again selling it.

That’s a crazy deal/steal. Those classic vibes aren’t just “Good guitars for the price”; they’re good guitars, period.

But cool find
Enjoy!

Yes it’s hanging right now new at L&M for $539 plus tax. Someone definitely put the wrong price tag.

Congrats! Best deal I've seen coming out of a pawn shop in 2 decades. Those days are gone. That must have been tagged incorrectly.

Yes had to be tagged wrong. Most of the stuff in there has been there for years. I always go in just to do a quick scan and never really find anything at a decent price. Pawn shops are definitely not what they used to be.
