    I was going to get $500 on top of the strat. Thanks a bunch for the heads up, alot of people would get ripped off and no way of knowing values. :cheers:

    I had a guy ask if I would trade my Silver Jubilee 2550 half-stack for a Fender "Jimi Hendrix LE" Strat. I don't know what the Hendrix Strat is worth, but, I never trade amplifiers for guitars. Not unless I'm getting one of each, from one item. I once traded a 1985 Jackson super-strat for a 1977 Marshall Super Lead MKII head, and a USA Fender Strat. I think it was a '77? It was the first year for MV on a Marshall, so whatever year that was.

    Yep frustrates the hell out of me. White left hand strats are always much dearer than other colours because righties buy them to flip ffs....

    We have enough trouble buying guitars without you lot pinching them :D

    Not my thing..not a fan of a right handed "reissue of Jimi's white strat". It looks all wrong:scratch:

    No keep the LP and buy you a nice Stratocaster style. Like a Yamaha, Schecter, or another brand.

    Very true, it almost goes without saying that Fenders are a benchmark but maybe not...
    There's a reason so many of the best guitar players use 'em.

    It's funny, if that was a Vintage series model it would be worth about 2k instead if 1200ish. Is there really all that much of a difference?

    If you have other Les Pauls, I would do it. A Strat is one of the basic flavors. You should own one.

    that is a nice guitar and beats any Fender American USA Strat. I like the color and figure . If you ever want to upgrade the pickups (unless you like them and that is fine as well ) I would try some ThroBak pickups . Yes they are pricey but the next best thing to Vintage Gibson PAF's www.throbak.com my favorite is the MXV-SLE-101Plus

    I also want to add just from looking at your Les Paul I would say she is a keeper , no if ands or buts . Not trying to tell you what to do , and lastly I wouldn't dwell to much on the weight relief thing as well . Like I said earlier the only change I would make with that nice Les Paul is the pickups , but that is strictly personal preference as well . Really like your Les Paul , my compliments :headbanger:

    No this is my only guitar at the moment. I have an acoustic but its my only electric. I have a problem though lol like most I want other guitars. Many of the artists I grew up listening to play strats, I ve played a few, and it is a distinct tone for sure, no matter what amp its through. Problem is I have to wait to get them and I am impatient when it comes to that lol.
