  • How much is this guitar worth?

    I'm trying to find out how much this guitar is worth. I bought it from someone about a week ago and it's in very good condition. He replaced a lot of the things in the guitar.

    1985 Fender Stratocaster Body

    Squier rosewood neck

    Jackson Pickups


    I'm not sure how much more detail I should add but if you need more information, just let me know. I'm mainly just looking for a estimate of how much you think it is worth.

    Probably not more than $100. You could part out the neck and body for $200 if you get really lucky, but unde $150 is more realistic.

      It's worth what someone would pay for it. 


      Personally, I wouldn't pay more than $50-$75 for a parts-o-caster.  I own a few myself, but I frankenstratted them personally.  I'm rarely interested in other people's projects/customized guitars.


      Also, I don't know why you're selling a guitar just after buying it (and you don't have to tell me why), but I really hope you're not one of those guys who is into flipping guitars on Craigslist, or buying whole guitars and parting them out for profit.  That **************** pisses me off.

      this is kind of where i'm leaning as well.  pics and better description might help.

    Based on the description, it sounds like the product of some guy's junk bin, and therefore would probably only fetch bargain-bin pricing.
