I have a friend selling his MIM Classic 60's strat for $475. Now, that's nothing special, but he's including a hard shell case, a nice leather strap, and he's upgraded both the pickups (to 57/62s) and the tuners.

Now, it's in pretty good condition for being 5+ years, with nothing to complain about. I was just apprehensive because of the resale value. I mean, it has tons of nice little upgrades, and it's definitely worth $475, but if I turned out to not like it, I don't want to get short-changed by my eagerness. I see people selling the unmodified version of this strat for $400 without a case, so if I were to re-sell it, would anyone think $500+ (all goodies included, of course) would be a fair re-sale price?

My paycheck came in this week, and I don't have much to spend, but if it's a good deal/investment, there's no reason NOT to pick it up.

Thanks for the input, guys.

Sounds like it's worth it if the un-modified version goes for 400.The upgrade pups and little extras make it a good deal IMO.You could always resell it for a minimal loss/profit if you don't like it.

It's a really solid guitar; I've only changed the pickups on mine and the rest is perfect. Get it if it's in good condition.
