British indie-rock outfit The Cribs have called upon Fender to release a reissue version of guitarist Ryan Jarman’s signature Mus-Uar Squier guitar after the affordable electric guitar was spotted being sold online for prices of up to £1,300 (approx $1,800).

The mark-up on the guitar itself is pretty staggering, considering the humble six-string originally carried a recommended retail price of just £330 ($450) – that’s almost a 295% increase.
