So this dude is offering me a 1997 "Crafted in Japan" Fender strat for my LTD EC1000 sunburst guitar with Seymour Duncans (JB/59s)

I tried out the Strat and it sounds gorgeous and feels like a freakin American strat! Should I go for it? What would you all do? I already have a les paul to take the place of the EC1000 incase I go through with it.

Do you know the model? Fender Japan was turning out a number of models during the 90s and many of them were high quality.

Model number is A014826
I think that's the serial number (Which indicates 97-98 manufacture)

There's a pretty good chance its a good trade, but I'd be interested in the specific model. If you can get this person to send over some pics we can help you identify it.

Used EC1000s typically fetch about $500

MIJ Fenders are on the rise. Financially it's a great trade.

But more importantly, they're excellent player guitars. They're incredible for the $$.

Looks like a reissue ('62RI?). I have one same year in candy apple red and they are fantastic guitars!

My #1 is a CIJ 54 reissue - it is my #1

and my booteek Grosh Tele is my #1a

I have tried many times to "upgrade" my strat out of pure greed or pure gas - just to have two booteeks
but every strat I try - always pales in comparison to the CIJ (I did upgrade the electronics/harness & installed some Grosh Fat 60's though)

I would do that trade in a heartbeat.
