Thoughts? I'm looking at trading a 64' strat for this....
Doesn't look like the neck has been reset though! Have you played it?
What are the details on the Strat you are trading? If it's pretty much original I'd be inclined to keep it as I'm not a fan of conversions but to each their own. I think a stock Strat would be a better long term investment.. Now if that was an original 52 Goldtop that would be a completely different story....
I would keep the 1964 strat if it's original!!!!
Like I said over at S-T..I'd do it...in a heartbeat.
I would do it if you are not attached to the Strat. Value wise I think it's about right.
Based on your sig, we might also factor in that you seem have two custom color '64 Stratocasters. Depending on the condition of the Strats, it could be a fair trade.
Did he mention the strat was a refin?
Thanks for the comments guys.... yeah the guitar I'd be trading is a refin, as is the 52.... also lots of changed parts on the strat as well. It's a great guitar, but now I have 2.... I just purchased one last month and it has all the original parts, so I figured I'd sell the white one, and got this offer. If the neck hasn't been reset I'm not to worried, was thinking about sending it to historic makeovers and having it refinished and having the pickup routes done right.... but I'd be on the fence as to whether I should do a full restoration, or maybe convert it to a 55-56 spec with p90's..... even though it would be cool as a 57. My point in posting this is to get an idea as to if it seems legit, and from what I can tell from the pics it looks like an early no # 52' with the original knobs and cover plates, not sure of the pots. I think it would be a fair trade all and all.
STRIKE WHILE THE IRON IS HOT!!
Just out of interest do you know who did the conversion work in the first place?
I don't approve of converting classic guitars, but that thing is awesome!
Can you get pics of the control cavity. Easy to spot a '52 by looking in there
Do it do it do it!
