Probably around 10 large depending on the condition.


It's not comepletely stock, but it's clean, so I say about 8 grand.

everything is stock except the strings, knobs & pickguard. I should have all the little parts too.

I would drool all over your guitar, but I'm afraid it would depreciate the value, lol.

If you have all the stock parts, you could get a small fortune, because that things is damn near immaculate.

so not all stock then !!!

10K??? - not in this lifetime

MAYBE £1500 if you can find all the stock parts. without them, id say £1200, maybe less.

its worth what someone will pay for it. most peeps looking for vintage will be wanting original fittings, so the desire for yours will diminish, compared to one with all the original parts.

early 70's weren't the best years for fenders


well, i played along side 60's Fenders, and there was no noticable difference. we even swapped guitars. you'd have to look to see the difference.
The sounds were awesome to say the least.

The 70's were cool like that!

About £2000 would be my estimate. 70's Fender's don't exactly have the best reputation, but if you've got a nice one and player, then mojo is something you can't put a price on.

If you'd shoved a rosewood neck on that, you'd basically have Ritchie Blackmore's fav Strat.

Without the black tone controls and such, of course.

Basically man the 70's weren't considered a great time for strats, so despite being vintage your looking at around 2 - 3 grand as the reputation just isn't great


However the whole vintage guitar thing gets more and more popular so you could see a real spike in the price of this guitr in years to come

I just found the original sales reciept, original tools, manual, hangtag, bridge cover.

Is that worth anything extra to the value?

You're not going to get a good assessment over the internet. No reputable store is going to do an online appraisal.
Go to a shop and ask them. Usually it's free or just a few bucks, and they'll give you a signed paper with the value for your insurance company.

I would say that a 1978 Strat is not worth 10k.

It's a boat anchor.

The most valuble "big headstock" strats are the 68/69 because of the Hendrix connection.

Next would be the ones up to mid 1973 - towards the end of the year they changed the pickups and some other things. You will notice the poles are flat, not staggered on these.

Next would be a white 1979 Anniversary that was not cracked. There was a problem with the paint on these and there were a few white ones that didn't crack, they're really rare (although they're pretty bad guitars). The cracked white would still be worth more then a silver one.

Your guitar is worth between 1200 and 2500.

The fact that you have this stuff will help you greatly. I'm guessing you are the original owner? That is amazing man. I'm lucky if I keep one of my strats for over 2 years.

About $2k in excellent, unplayed, all original condition. She has some collector value because she looks a bit Jimi, but not highly collectible.

Everything about strats in the '70's was about 'Pre-CBS' vs. 'CBS Crap.'

It has taken some real pushing, lots of revisionist history and maybe a mindwipe or two from vintage dealers to get CBS-era strats back from the grave of being considered wood chipper fodder to a current position of being mildly "whoa, dude!"

I'm still trying to squint at the differences between a Squier and a MIA and figure out why one is really worth more.
