Allright, here's my dilemma


I am in the process of picking up a LP Standard.

I have a o5 American Strat (listed here), that I am about to put on ebay, but have just been offered a local trade for a nice LP studio.

I am concerned about my return on my Strat, and what it'll fetch on the bay to the point that I'm strongly considering executing the trade, and throwing the studio on ebay.

I'm hoping to get $700 for the strat, but the ended auctions have a pretty wide range, and it has me kinda nervous, where as I think I have a better chance for $700 for the studio.


What the hell am I to do?:jo

Very hard to predict what will happen with an e-bay auction. I think 700 is a little high for a used am strat (I assume its a am series or standard)

Agree. I think you have a much better chance at $700 with the Studio. Heck, you might even like the studio enough to where you won't want a LPS!

I dont remember....what is the difference between the two?

Doubtful, they dont look right to me without the binding, I know it's only cosmetic, but......:horse

Well.....

WWJD? (who wants Jack Daniels)

Trade for the Studio if it is in great shape. It'll tide you over until you get your Standard.

Reason being is that you can still buy NEW American Standard Strats all day long for $820.00. The Studio (if in great shape) would/should bring more on eBay than the Strat.

If the Studio has an Ebony fingerboard then DEFINATELY trade...the Ebony board studios seem to command a higher price than the more recent rosewood studios

So far I have been offered locally:

a 2001 studio in blue teal flip flop (with aftermarket pups, not sure what yet), and a 2003 Wine red.

If both are in equal condition, which do I go for?

I wont keep it for long, as I'm about to pull the trigger on a minty '04 Standard HCSB with a nice flame top (AA) for $1600.

The funds from selling the Studio is going towards the upcoming Egnater Amp building Seminar:AOK
