Many open box classic vibes at even lower prices than their deal prices
See full list here:

Many people report that they sell new stuff with open box or mint label to get around manufacturer's lowest price limit. YMMV. Do your own research.

There are many past deal links from proaudiostar and generally people had good/decent experience with them. Again YMMV.

200 for a 50 classic vibe strat is very hard to beat.

I've bought way too many guitars this past year. Must resist.
I've purchased from this company and nothing but positive feedback. I did see a used guitar once but wanted a different color. For a little more, they gave me a brand new one of the color I wanted. They are very helpful if you send them a message.

There's a deal here somewhere... Hard to tell if these are actually "open box" or new in box and just advertised at a lower price to avoid MAP dealer pricing. I bout a "used" CV Tele from this site a few months ago that was indeed brand new sealed in box. Could be a deal or could actually be used/return/open box. If it's used there's no telling what condition it's in or if a return/exchange is even possible. Confusing too that multiple listings of same product at different prices but with no serials or condition description. Other sites that actually sell open box provide more info. It'd be a gamble if you're looking for that sorta thing

Bet these are actually open box/blem/b-stock. Just noticed all SKUs end in "-B." Never seen that before on Fender/Squier products but guessing that's what it means

Great price, I routinely see these listed for $275+ used on CL thoughI do wonder about this retailer, their prices for these squires always seems too good to be true (they often have sales with them at this price). I'd like to know if they're buying them grey market or whatever.

Also it's my personal opinion that, if you're not a total beginner and looking for solid entry level guitars, the player series Fenders (typically $550 new on sale) are worth it for the step up in quality/better electronics.

Strongly considering grabbing the 70s natural strat and dropping in a fender tex-mex pre-loaded pickguard. A custom strat for ~$400...🤔

Sorry to be ignorant, but how much does this improve the guitar? I see Amazon has some of these pickguards from $151+. [amazon.com]

There's a fair amount of feedback on different forums about them, most buyers seem pretty happy. If you want the best possible service, go to sweetwater, with a deep discount retailer, I wouldn't expect perfection. The player's series is a good value at $550, at $900, not so much, and yes, I owned one. It's true the electronics didn't need any upgrades, but the fit and finish was about the same as a Squier Classic vibe. I'd say those are a better value for a beginner with a little bit more money to spend.

I've been wanting a Les Paul copy but this is a solid deal. I may have to bite.
