I got a MIM Fender Strat HSS this month for $250 used from GC. At the time I thought this was a great deal as a backup guitar since my band will be gigging soon. Now Im starting to think otherwise. It definitely needs some fret work and I hate to put another $100 into it for that. I also already have an HSS Strat in sunburst, so having 2 is seeming kind of pointless.

I was checking out some guitars around that price and came across the Epiphone LP100. Any thoughts on that or others? Or should I just keep this? Thanks guys

The MIM Strat beats the LP100 by SO much. It's worth putting the $100 into it for the fret work.

+1 the LP 100 is a piece of crap that is called a guitar

The LP 100 is sad. I regret ever having that thing, good thing I upgraded to a Standard.

Haha well I guess that cancels out the LP then. Any other Epiphones-SG or LP in the $300 price range that compare to the MIM Strat?

Not in my opinion. I love MIM Strats especially for the price.

a 2x used guitar wont get much 2nd hand value. might as well re-fret it and keep it as a double.

a "2x used" guitar will probably get very close to a "1x used" guitar. unlike cars, the value of guitars generally doesn't decrease as the number of owners increases so long as the condition doesn't drastically change. in fact I usually sell guitars for more than I purchased them for, most often because the person I bought it from didn't describe or photograph it sufficiently (ebay). If you want to sell it, chances are you could get about $300 for it if you describe it well. Try craigslisting it. and if you're looking for an SG, the g400 is a common option, but keep an eye for any elitists that might float up into your price rangee.

Try to get a used Epiphone Les Paul Standard, it is exactly what you are looking for.

If you are not able to get that, a Epiphone G-400 is a good instrument.

you can swap the frets that need the most work.

polish the rest, and use any extra budget money to swap out a pickup in it to make it different from your other strat.

Since I financed it thru GC, Im pretty much stuck there and a LP Stand is $650 which is too high. Sucks. Anyway, what do you guys think of the Duncan SH-4 and SH-5 pickups as a replacement for the stock one on the Strat?
