1965 Fender Stratocaster, mint condition, what is it worth?

I'm trying to find the value of an all original 1965 Stratocaster. The finish is sunburst. Has a 3 way switch and tremolo bar. Everything is original on it. Has been played under 40 hours. It has the hardshell black fender case and it is also in mint condition.
Thank you,
Rita

Pre-CBS or Post-CBS?

I'm doing a report on pre-CBS guitars and I was wondering if anyone knows any good websites that compare and contrast the differences between pre and post. I'm finding a lot of opinions, but not a lot of cold hard facts. Please e-mail me! Thanks.

1965 Stratocaster all original-what is it worth?

I am trying to find out what a 1965 Fender Stratocaster is worth. It is in perfect condition - everything is original on it. Sunburst finish. Hardshell original case. Has maybe 40 hours total playing time on it.

Re: 1965 Stratocaster all original-what is it worth?

You must mean a '65 re-issue. How would you know it only has forty hours playing time on it unless you owned it since 1965. If it the real thing, it's worth around $6000.

Re: 1965 Stratocaster all original-what is it worth?

why on earth would you consider selling such a thing

Re: Fender The Twin (The Evil Twin)

Hi, I was wondering if anyone ever sent you the schematics for the "red knob" twin... No one can figure out what's wrong with mine but one guy said if I could find the schematics online that it would help a great deal. If you don't have them, that's fine but if you do could you e-mail them to me, please? My e-mail is kre8ive_won@yahoo.com Thank you!

i am considering buying a Fender DG-14S. i have played it and it sounds great, but that's in the store in their acoustically wonderful practice room. can anyone give me the low down on this guitar? it seems hard to believe that a guitar that sounds that good would cost so little. thanks in advance.

Limited Edition Stratocaster

I have two Limited Edition Stratocasters -95 or -96 (N5). They have coloured headstocks (bodycolour). The red one is a Candy Apple Red with mapleneck but I also have a dark green metallic with a rosewood neck. Can anyone tell me the name of that green colour and how many "limited" they made? Was there anything more "special" with them?

Re: Limited Edition Stratocaster

I believe the green one is called Caribbean green or something to the like. The pickups are Texas fat types. Don't know the production run. I just bought a candy-apple red one!!

Stratocaster or Telecaster ?

I can't understand the difference between Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster.
What is the difference.
Telecaster seems to me like an ugly peace of wood.
and why do some player choose to perform sometimes with their telecasters and in othertimes with their stratocaster

looks like you probably did just fine.

Re: Fender La Brea(What is it worth?)

I just purchased this guitar via private sale for about the same price as you, so I guess the price is right ... In any case, it plays great and sounds great amplified or unplugged, that makes it worth alot!

Do Pre-CBS pickups have serial numbers?

I have a '68 Strat that I bought in '82. The pots were switched when I bought it, and I was recently trying to date the pickups, but I realize now that they're NOT the gray bobbin type from the late 60's. They have black bobbins, a waxey coating, cloth wiring, surgical tube mounts instead of springs, and staggered pole pieces consistent with the '56 - '64 pickups. Does anyone know if the old black bobbin pickups had any type of numbering or intials on them, because these DON'T.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!

Re: Do Pre-CBS pickups have serial numbers?

No, these pickups are not generally dated or identified. You can compare the winding wire and general details by consulting a reference book on Strats. A reputable vintage dealer can also tell you if they look like originals.

wiring on a telecaster

Help..I'm rewiring A Tele and have tried to attach the 3 way switch and am only getting bridge pick up and bridge and neck but no neck on its own. I'm not so good at this stuff. Any Ideas. The switch has a configuration of 3 terminals on the left and the same on the right with one alone smack bang in the middle. I want the three choices of course. I have a diagram to follow but its not the same switch, so something is awry. If the telecaster god please e mail me soon I promise to eat all my greens.
