The VM Jaguar/Jazzmasters are flying at $399 street now, VI @ $449. <br /> <br /> Guessing the rest of the line may inch up as well.<br /> <br /> It's been a few years without increase, but a hundred bucks on the Jag/Jazzmasters is pretty steep.

The MIM stuff went up about mid '15. Standard Strats from $499 to $599 street price. A 20% increase is just plain huge.<br /> <br /> The dollar is stronger against Asian currency, I don't get it on the Squier stuff at all.

They do increases on a bigger scale less often it seems, not sure how it translates.<br /> <br /> Not sure some of these guitars will fly as a fun impulse buy at the new price points though.

Many of us commented on this very topic in Oct '15.<br /> <br /> Interesting how some perspectives can change in four months...
