Although, I say that reluctantly because the Staggs they had were pretty pricey too. Atleast compared to a Squier.

I thought they were pretty decent looking. Didnt play it.

MF sells both squires and fender
So does PROSOUND and GUITARCENTER and both of those are authorized dealers and Repair shops for FENDER
Ouch, owe... ok OK I get it.. Sorry.. I was wrong!!! LOL :oops:

that could well have been the company policy at one time.
Gibson recently alienated many of the small shops by similar unneccessary regulations involving the stock that a store must carry to be a vender of their product.
if i remember correctly, that generated a huge amount of negative publicity and fender may have recently changed their policy to avoid that.
We've all been told things by people who sell guitars that later turned out to be inaccurate :wink:
