Hi,
I found a 1989 MIK Squier offered online - Serial = E939725
The Seller will sell for $220.
Looking online, this seems like a pretty good deal for a sweet vintage Strat.

Any notes on:
1. How to verify that it's authentic.
2. Whether it's a good deal.

Thank you

If you want the forum to help with ID'ing, you need to post pics. At the minimum, a link to the original ad.
A serial number may give some pointers, but it doesn't guarantee anything.
Then again, fakers don't concentrate on making fake MIK Squiers, so my basic instinct says it's 'probably real, not necessarily original'.

On the "vintage" description, I'd rather talk about MIK's as "old". Like that $220 (asking) price tells, they haven't gotten a big price upswing with years.

The price/good deal question depends.
Is it in good playing condition, all electronics & hardware fully working, frets still playable? IMHO, 220 isn't a lot for a nice guitar, whatever the brand says - and you might even get the price down a bit. (One note here: all Korean old Squiers aren't the same...)
Are you looking to get a profit for it? IMHO, the price level won't raise in a significant way.
What are your options? There are a lot of newer Squiers for the same price level - but if you want/need/must have an old guitar, this could be OK.
