Now, don't refinish it, don't paint it and don't repair it. Don't do anything that will alter the value of it. Play it and enjoy it, but don't ruin it. If you decide to sell it, you can probably still get a pretty penny for it. Places like Chicago Music Exchange, California Vintage Guitar and Amp, Gruhn Guitars and others, would probably surprise you with decent offers.

Edit: Even a refret will alter the value of it.

'67 pickups kinda sucked. Change it to a '57/'62 set and you'll be happy.

That's a great deal.

I would definitely look at making that a restoration project. I'm not too sure about the colour but any mods I would reverse, I'd look at filling the holes that were made when the Kahler was installed and have it as stock as possible.

I'd look into putting an OFR in it if it's routed for one, but I think the Kahler looks far worse than an OFR.

yeah I was thinking about that. the kahler is pre 1987 (idk the exact year) do you think thats worth any money? and I'm not gonna restore the guitar or change the pick ups I love how beat up it is and the pick ups are original so I really dont want to seperate those from the rest of the guitar

dude the less you do to this guitar the better in the long run.

can an original strat trem be put back on normally, using the original holes? <----- answer that.

you may not have to.

it depends on the condition of the guitar under that kahler.

if the original holes are there and not messed up you may be able to.

if it's been routed and changed such that the holes are gone then maybe not.

That's pretty good. Obviously, you're not going to get anywhere near as much as you would for an unmolested strat of the same vintage, but I would say even in the worst case it's still probably worth 2-3 times as much as you got it for. Whether you can put a vintage fender trem back on there depends on whether or not the floyd rose was given a sunken rout or not. If not, it'll just be a case of filling in the post holes with a bit of dowel and wood glue then sticking a more in-keeping bridge on there, otherwise it will require a bit more work.

The trem looks wrong. Is it set up to not be full floating? No springs? The route doesn't even look like it has enough space.

Either way, the guitar is worth more than you'll be paying for it.

Take it to a proper dealer. This is the rule with all pre-1980s guitars. The internet is not the place to sell such things, nor is it the place to get an accurate evaluation.

That said, any modifications lower the value of a guitar. In this case, the modifications are extensive and quite damaging in nature; the condition of the guitar also does not seem to be terribly good. Do not expect this guitar to be worth anywhere near what a stock late-60s Strat is.

Naw the trem makes it even cooler, locking tuners to complete it?

Killer. It's what Hendrix would have wanted for you.

from what I understand a kahler has springs underneath it that dont require as much routing as a floyd.

also the guitar is routed for a recessed floyd so they took out quite a bit of wood. I hope I can go pick it up with in the week so I can post some better pics

He's getting it for $500 with an OHSC. Where else will you find any pre-CBS Strats for that price? I bet the case alone will ebay for $100+. Plus, he likes the feel and the sound. $500 is an absolute steal.

Curious, how do you know it's a true 67 Strat?
