    I stopped playing a while ago but decided to pick it back up. Went into a vintage guitar store and fell in love with a 1976 strat. It's just nicely, naturally reliced and plays like a dream. It's all original and sounds great. It does have a trem. I just don't have it on right now. The store was asking $2500 and wouldn't budge so I bought it for that price. Did I overpay and if so by a lot? I don't mind if I overpaid a little. I love the guitar. I just want to make sure I wasn't getting gouged.

    Looks clean, the top of the headstock looks minty. It has the 3 bolt neck, Leo invented that BTW. I think you did well. Did you remove the pick guard and look under the hood? Its a beauty!

    2017 VG Price Guide places this guitar at $2500 in high condition. I'd say you paid just about the right price.

    Looks pretty clean. That price doesn’t send my eyebrows skyward so imo that’s a fair deal
