    Have the opportunity to buy a FSR limited run Stratocaster. How well do they maintain their value? I really want it for the wood, finish and pick up configuration, but also am concerned about depreciation. It won't keep me from the purchase, I'm curious though.

    Thanks.

    I don't know because my FSR Tele is an '11, but it's a hell of a guitar for the money. I've seen them sell for $500 used, which is what it cost new. I traded a MIM strat and $200 for it (the Tele was used but still had plastic on the guard) and a Fender hard case...which means I have $450 in it including a free $100 case...and they don't come with cases. Good ol' GC specs em without cases...

    I don't think the FSR guitars are worth any more or less than other Fender models when it comes to resale value. Some of the limited run colors (like the Sunfire Orange Strat I own) might be worth a little more than a Standard MIM Strat, but not much.

    As long as it holds it's value, I'd be happy.
