what is a heavily modified 1967 strat worth?

hey my moms friend is selling a 67 strat thats pretty road worn, which is awesome but some ass hole routed it for a floyd rose at some point then put a kahler on top of that. It comes with the original case thats in pretty good shape. she said she would sell it to me for 500 (usd). my question is is anyone getting screwed in this deal?

That sounds like a pretty solid deal to me. Even the case is worth at least a quarter of that.

That's an awesome deal in my opinion. A 1967 strat, even modified like that is awesome.

You could part it out and sell everything but the body for a decent amount if it's original.

It looks to be all original, would it have came with a 3 way or a 5 way switch? it has a 5 way

The '67 is considered one of those "good years" in Strats. Up there with '56/'57 and '62.

Yeah, there's a lefty 1967 Strat on Ebay right now for $2,400. I'd say yours in present condition would be like $1,200. The '67 is so popular because Hendrix's Woodstock Strat was a '67, I'm pretty sure. Famous years tend to add more to vintage Strats like that. If I recall correctly, too, Clapton's Brownie he got from Steve Winwood was a 1967 before he switched to Blackie, which was a frankenstien of 3 different 50's Strats.

If you decide you don't like it I'll give you $500 for it

sorry those are the iPhone pics she sent me haha and from my limited knowledge of vintage strats I would say yeah the bridge is the only modification, the frets seem to be in really good shape so it might have had a fret job at some point

New frets would be a worth it investment. If you swap the bridge I'd recommend a swap for a Fender authorized 2 Screw trem or a Super Vee. They're my favorite third party Strat trem factory.

You do realize this is a Stratocaster and not a Springy Sound, right greg?

Buy it. My 2012 Vintage Guitar Price Guide lists that guitar at a decent price. Now, realize the Price Guide takes into consideration the guitar has normal wear for a '67 and is in all original condition. This one has some wear and is not 100% original.

If that yellow color is what is considered to be a common color, the price for a guitar in better condition would be anywhere from $11,800 to $14,800. For a rare color, it's anywhere from $14,800 to $27,000. Again, this guitar has some condition issues and originality issues, so the price is going to be down from that. Also, keep in mind that my price guide is from 2012 - I haven't purchased one for 2013 yet and I know the prices slipped a little for the vintage market.

Still... for $500, I'd be all over that. Buy it. Buy it now.
