    1998 American Standard
    Alder body, Rosewood fretboard
    Inca Silver w/ tortoise shell pickguard
    Seymour Duncan Hot Rails in bridge.

    Its in good condition, but has some belt buckle scratches and some wear.

    Is $550 about right?

    I guess that depends on who's buying...belt buckle scratches and some wear...might allow ya to call it a relic'd strat..and add a couple hundred to your asking price heh heh

    Yeah....I think it being a American made Strat puts it into the $500.00 price range. I sold some USA and never got less than 5 Franklin's. I hope Silver/Tortoise/Rosewood looks better than I think it does.

    That is a fair price, considering the mods. If you have the original parts, that would be a nice bonus.

    Yeah, I agree - thats uglier than sin. I'll give you $400 for it. ;)

    I kind of like the color. $500 - 550 sounds about right

    The pickguard is pearloid, not tortoise.

    Drop the original pickup in the bridge and sell the Hot Rails for another $50, providing you still have the original pickup.
