  • Evaluate a trade I made on Friday!!!

    On Friday I traded $200 and a mint 2001 USA Fender Tele in see thru Olympic white with a maple neck and fretboard for a minty 2003 Fender Eric Clapton sig strat in the solid black color with the maple neck/board. I think I made out like a bandit, especially since I don't play the tele too much at all. Thoughts?

    If you're happy with the EC Strat, I think you did fine.

      I guess it comes down to the condition of both instruments, and which one you prefer. As far as price goes YOU > HIM.

        don't know about the actual value of these guitars, but I'd take a strat over a tele any day...

          Both guitars were in great shape. Both were players guitars, but they had been taken care of very nicely.

            Because the Strat's an EC sig and probably with the quiet Lace Sensor pups, I think you did real well. Although there are some people who think Tele's are the greatest, if it's not your style, you have dealt with the problem!

              Actually it's the newer version with the Noiseless pickups...which are considered an upgrade from the Lace Sensors...I love them. They are really loud too...

                Right on!

                  Well then, no lace sensors!!!! SCORE!!!!!

                  I say thats a damn smart trade!

                      Let's sum this up:

                      1. You got the better guitar, with better resale.
                      2. You received about $1,200 (given a years play) for roughly $700 ($500 for the Tele with 3 years play + 200 cash).

                      3. You won big my friend. Enjoy the EC.

                      If you traded with a friend, you should buy him a lunch.
