PRS/ Fender trade. Should I do it?

I have a possible trade going and wanted to know what you guys thought. I would be trading my 2011 American standard strat FSR and my 2011 65 Deluxe Reverb Reissue for a 2003 Custom 22. The Custom 22 have bird inlays but no 10 top, stop/wrap around tail piece. My Strat is loaded with Suhr ML's and I'd be including the original pups as well. Does this sound like a pretty fair trade? For strat type tones my other guitar is an ESP vintage plus which I much prefer over the fender. I would be ampless but I think it'd give me an excuse to pick up a blackstar ht40 (been wanting one for a while). All the gear involved in the trade is minty(my stuff and his prs). Thanks.

I have the same PRS, mine is a dark green flame top but not top 10, same birds and bridge. I traded a Gibson 335 that although a beautiful guitar, I never really played much. I play the PRS a lot. It sounds like an ok trade, just about even. You do know you'll miss the strat and eventually sooner than later be gettting a replacement. Otherwise enjoy the PRS. The rotary pickup selector takes a while to get use to.

Thanks for the replys guys. Just got done playing through the strat and the deluxe. I shot the guy a text and told him it was a no go ;) This has got to be one of the prettiest tones I've heard bar none. The suhr ML's are killer and I forgot to metion the bright cap mod has been done on this amp and I've got really nice NOS telefunkens in it as well. I just need to hold of and maybe get a used Les Paul Studio or something down the line for my "bucker" tones. I really am a strat guy at the end of the day and would be kicking myself in the ass later. My ESP does play better but damn this guitar just sounds so sweet, the two sound completely different and compliment each other really well.

I traded a brand New USA strat for a PRS CE24 some years back. It was an awesome trade.

 

Now if I could find someone who wanted to swap a CE24 for my strat that'd be another story ;) I love the bolt neck PRS's they seem "snappier" to me somehow if that makes any sense. Especially if I could find one with an alder body.

It was a bit of luck..and with a really cool guy that loved white strats with maple boards.
