Hi all!

I have a 1998 Fender Deluxe Players Stratocaster. It has a honey blonde finish that is no longer made anymore. The guitar is in perfect condition. I was just wondering what you think it would sell for?

Thanks.

It's a Mexican Strat right? You could probably get $400 for it.

Mm, your guitar looks like butterscotch. I want some butterscotch. Or some caramel.

Anyway, why don't you start at $600 and then go down as you feel you need to?

Because that's what they sell for new so there's no way in hell he'll get that for it? '98 isn't a desirable year so it devalues just like any other guitar. All of those on Jaxed looking for $500+ are just wasting everybody's time.

It was a desirable year actually. It was made mostly with american hardware.

Most of the hardware on today's MIM Strats is made in America too, along with the necks.

ya 1998 isn't really that old of a guitar
it needs to be like 25-30 to really be vintage and even then i don't think anyone really wants a 80's fender guitar

Depends on the 80s Fender. The RI series from the mid 80s are extremely desirable, as are the MIJs.

Sometimes around 1998 Fender started downgrading the electronics on the MIM strats. The older ones sound better stock. I’ve never been able to nail down exactly what changed and if it was after the 1998 models or during the 1998 run.

How much did you originally pay for it???

Whether it has appreciated or depreciated depends on what condition it is in right now. But a good starting point is the original price you paid.

I traded my epi explorer for it, which was really only about 300 used, but I got a better deal clearly. Its in wonderful condition. No belt rash or anything.

i'd say you won the deal. anything you get over $300 would be a win honestly.

post it for $400 and see what shakes.

i already have a strat so i'm out.

Not sure how my folks would react if I told them I wanted to sell my 3 week old guitar.

Oh and what's better than 2 strats? 3 PRS's. Trade?
