For Trade Only: Fender Nat. Finish Spec. Edition '06 Mexican Standard Strat

#1
I'm looking to trade Half-Step, my Special Edition Natural Finished 2006 Fender Mexican Standard Stratocaster. I wanna trade it cause I already have two Strats, and I'm not a huge fan of rosewood fretboards on Strats (I don't want to spend money on just a neck :/). I promise you, theres nothing wrong with it, it's a mighty fine Strat And it's semi-new, I bought it 3 months ago for $430 at GC (it just shipped in when I got it).

The only thing I changed on it was the pickguard, I swapped the white pickguard with a brown Tortoise one, and It looks great. And I took the tremolo cover off too.

Specs: (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fender-Standard-Stratocaster-Electric-Guitar?sku=516037)
- Body Wood: Alder
- Body Finish: Natural (This is the reason its a Special Edition, I think)
- Neck Wood: Maple
- Fretboard Wood: Rosewood
- 21 Frets
- Mother of Pear Fretboard Inlays
- Vintage Tremolo
-Currently fitted with .11 gauge Stainless Steel DRs, I will put whatever kind of strings you want on it upon request
And so on.

Ups:
- Amazing pups, It has a beautiful warm sound to it that's perfect for blues
- Extremely high quality hardware
- Hardly any dents on it
- Great finish, It won't ware off any time soon
- Stays in tune

Downs:
- Frets are a little sharp on the edges
- A little buzz on some of the frets\
- About 2-3 dents in it, hardly noticeable though due to the finish, and they aren't big
- Top of headstock is scratched
- There are some scratches on the back of it
- It's kinda heavy compared to the my other Strats
- New pickguard is a little sticky due to taking the plastic wrapping off wrong when I got it

And the serial number is MZ5176511

I'll give you the original pickguard with the tremolo cover upon request

It's value right now should be $360-$380ish, you guys can correct me if you want

So what am I looking for in return? Any electric guitar around the same price when I bought it ($430, I won't mind about $30-$50 less or more either). To be kinda specific:
(When I mean Any, I mean any kind of brand, or anything. I'll accept no-names too)
(Listed from most wanted down to wanted)
- Any kind of Telecaster
- Any kind of Jaguar/Jazzmaster/Mustang/etc..
- Any PRS (I think the have $400ish models)
- Any SG
- Those Washburn Idol things :x
- Any Les Paul
- Any Flying V
- Any other Gibsons/Epiphones (I doubt Gibsons lol)
- Any other Fender thats not a Stratocaster
- Any Carvin (not sure of the price ranges)
- And Peavy

But do try to refrain from offering: (no offense)
- Ibanez's (I was interested in a Artcore, but I already have a hollow body, so yeah)
- Soloist shaped guitars/anything similar
- Jacksons
- Any guitar thats more suited for metal

Still, offer me any electric guitar you want, I'll consider anything (to a point, you know?)

Are you interested in project-quality guitars, or deals for a variety of stuff? I have a buddy in New York, so I could probably arrange for an exchange to actually take place in person. I have some interesting projects, some decent effects, etc. and would love to bundle a bunch of it up and find a home for it...

Yeah, I'm interested in just about everything. Do you know what he'd be able to offer me in exchange? Just wondering :x
And what part of NY does he live in?

Sure, so what would you have to trade? :x (hah sorry if I'm sounding like a jerk, I don't know any other way to say that)

Me too, specially with maple fingerboards, it'sa awesome combo. :x
Hah I wish, I'm gonna start saving up for a Thinline soon anyway, or a SG.
Nah sorry, I'm not really into Ibanez's (I like Artcores though, but I already have a hollow body), I should of put that up on the first post :/

that is a nice strat you are selling. just trying to give you some advice, used MIM strats are all over ebay for 200-250. some of the anniversaryor signature MIM strats are going for more. If this were a MIJ strat, I would trade you in a hearbeat


Hah yeah I know what you mean, but I'm trying to keep ithe trading range around $300-350 cause if I swap with someone for a guitar around the same price, no one loses money. But on eBay, if you sold a $400ish Strat for $250 or something, you lose money, you know? Thats just my opinion though, I dunno If anyone else thinks of it that way. :x

I have a Washburn I64 PL that I would trade you for your strat. It was a special edition WI64 that was only sold through Music123. The ebay link I'll put here is NOT my guitar, but its the only place I could find information and pictures of it. If you're interested, I can email you pictures of my actual guitar.

http://cgi.ebay.com/Washburn-Idol-wi-64pl_W0QQitemZ270077062750QQihZ017QQcategoryZ33048QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

I also have a hard case for it.

maybe we can make a deal?

Gear:
Partscaster/Tele into a bunch of pedals, a Maz 18 head, and a Z Best cab.
