Hi, i have bought a cheap guitar, and have decided i love it enough to spend some money on a new one. Smiley

This has come up on offer

Fender Stratocaster (MZ3172960)
Fender Amplifier Model (FM212R)
360w Fender Pedal 2x Fender Leads Guitar Strap New Strings $2,000 worth of Fender Equipment Excellent condition Perfect offer; wont last!

Is this a good combo, he wants 600$ australian, about 420 US i suppose.

what does the MZ mean? I think its mexican

My problem is i cant find any idea of how much fender strats retail for, they seem to vary massively in price, and i have no idea of why

This will be my house guitar, but i want a good quality one, without going overboard.

All help, comments and suggestions much appreciated! Smiley

MZ is part of the serial number. It indicates the guitar was manufactured at the Mexican plant. It's probably just your standard Mexi-Strat; perfectly fine out of the box for most people and you can upgrade a few things to make it even better. I'm not a huge fan of the amp, but some folks seem to like it.

That looks to be a decent enough deal based on what you would expect to see used gear for in the US. Not sure about the market in Australia obviously, but either way I wouldn't think the price is a rip off. Probably at least worth a look if it's the kind of setup you're looking for.

I responded to this in the Buy and Sell forum---perhaps a mod could merge these threads?

Chuck, consider them merged.

MZ3172960 is the serial number. M means it was made in Mexico; Z means it was made in the 2000 decade (S would mean Seventies, E means Eighties; N means Nineties). And the 3 after the Z is the year, so that's a 2003 Mexican Strat.

I don't know what the going rates are Down Under, but in the States, a Mexican Strat in decent shape is probably worth around $US 300, and that amp is probably worth around $US 200-250. So I'd say that a package deal for the two of them for $420 would be a good deal, especially with other accessories thrown in too.

The prices of Stratocasters vary because Fender makes dozens and dozens of different models at various levels of features and quality, from very cheap Squiers up to very expensive Custom Shop exotics. The Mexican Standards, which is probably what that is, are generally considered pretty decent guitars, and every once in a while you can find one that is really nice. Used Mexican Fenders are good "bang for the buck" deals, usually, and if there's nothing wrong with that particular guitar I'd say it's probably a good step-up instrument.

I've played through that amp at a store and it gives a good, loud, clean tone. I haven't tried the distortion channel. Assuming you like the way it sounds, it should be plenty of amp for just about anything.
