Hi guys, long time reader, not sure if I've ever posted, but hopefully someone can help me.

Around 20 November 2016, I bought a Fender Stratocaster (pictured) off a guy my Dad works with. He said he didn't know anything about it and had never seen a Stratocaster with the coil split switch where the second tone knob should be. After a lot of digging, I could confirm that it is a genuine Fender model, only produced from 1994-1997. This Strat is a '95 model. The information I found on a forum and in response to another guy with a red one of these is as follows:

Specs: Prices and Specifications Subject to Change Without Notice

I don't have my serial number to hand as I'm on a train, but I was wondering if this thing is worth anything? Is it rare? etc. I bought it for £150.

Thanks!

agree. sounds like a MIM Standard HSS to me. figure $300-350 in nice shape is the current value.

for the record my main Strat is also a 95 MIM though it's been heavily modded.

Had a 98, fixed it up, gave it to my dad. He is blown away, I love that guitar.
Some see the glass half full, others see the glass half empty. Me? I see that the glass is refillable.

$300 without a case, $350 with a case IMO.

I'm pretty sure you can sell it for more than what you paid, even if it's a MIM(?).

Nice pic. Post more!
