Hey guys. Heres my story:

I've been trying to sell or trade my American Strat for a while now, and so far the only person to give me a decent offer is this guy who has a whole bunch of amps. He wants to trade a Peavey 6505+ for my strat. Now dont get me wrong, I like the 6505+, but I was more looking into what the Mustang IV/V can do. Any suggestions on what I should do? I was trying to get about 700$ for my strat.

Personally, I think the mustang would be an awful trade, quality and value wise. What model 6505?
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

If you are thinking of a Mustang surely a 6505 is entirely the wrong amp? I'd just sell the guitar and with the money you get look around for an amp that is exactly what you want. I don't mean a Mustang, I mean the amp you want the most that the Mustang is pretending to be. If you are in the US you could score a real Blackface Twin for that sort of money (if that's the sort of thing you want).

American Strats tend to not hold their value as well as other quality guitars since they're so common/available. I'm not saying $700 is a bad price to ask for, but many for around $600.
