Fender Stratocaster for Sale!
What you need to know before buying your strat
If you’re looking for a Fender Stratocaster for sale, then you’re looking for the best.
The good news is that there are a lot of places to go shopping for the best.
The bad news is that there are so many places to choose from that it’s easy to get confused, and it’s easy to go buy the first Strat you run across, meaning you might not be getting the best deal.
For every legitimate guitar dealer out there, there are a few that are just out for the money, and will sell you something that’s not worth what you’re spending.
The best advice I can give you, if you’re looking for a Fender Stratocaster for sale, is to research. A lot.
Go online and find the kind of Strat you want.
You don’t necessarily have to pick every little detail, but you need a pretty good idea of what you’re going to be searching for.
With even a rudimentary list in hand, you’re less likely to spend all your money on something that you won’t be happy with when you get home.
Try to categorize what’s really important and what’s optional.
Once you know what you’re looking for, you’re ready to hit the stores.
There are a bunch of places to find a guitar, from licensed Fender dealers right down to your neighborhood pawnshop.
Shopping around, being picky, and even negotiating prices in places that allow that…all these things can help you be sure of getting what you pay for.
Another excellent way to find a great Fender Stratocaster for sale is online.
From the Fender website to Ebay, there are thousands for sale.
If you want a used Fender (hey, they’re a lot cheaper!), then the auction sites like Ebay can be awesome.
Most auctions on this site will offer a good selection of photos of the items on sale, and detailed descriptions.
Ebayers get in big trouble if they don’t describe things accurately, which can work in your favor.
They also have a feedback system, where you can see how many satisfied customers a seller has had.
Feel free to ask questions, the sellers are usually more than happy to describe their items in more detail, or to provide you with additional photos.
When buying a used Fender Stratocaster from Ebay, a person who has sold other guitars on there before is your best bet.
If they have a high feedback score, and have a long history of guitar sales, then they probably know a lot about them, give good details about the instruments they sell, and know how to package your treasure so it survives its journey through the postal system.
All in all…do some reading before you sign that check, and make sure you know everything you can about the Strat you’re buying.
If all else fails…there is Ebay Buyer Protection!
