I have a Memphis Electric I think Fender copy of some sort.

Hello All..... I am new to this site and need some help please.
I acquired an electric guitar from a friend...I have heard that it is a Memphis Fender copy....a Strat or Tele...but I have no clue.
It was a complete mess...I mean Nasty....Cigarette burns on it...and coated with tar....The guy I got it from painted the pic guard with acrylic paint and used different color electrical tape to make stripes on it...
I took the guitar from him...and cleaned it up pretty wicked !!!!!
I basically cleaned everything...resoldered everything electrical on the guitar...Restrung the guitar...and it sounbds decent... but I would like to know exactly what this guitar is and how old it is...what it went for and what its worth now if anything.
I have pics of the guitar... but I dont know how to post pics here..
Help Please !!

Hi,

It looks to be a pretty decent Strat-copy, with maple neck and from your pics what appears to be an Ash body. It all looks to be good quality stuff.

I concur; a 3-piece ash body (solid, no ply) and a maple neck with maple fingerboard. From the headstock shape, I'd guess it's a 1970s copy. There are a number of limited reviews here:

and a suggestion that the instrument is not worth a great deal, around $200, probably worth keeping if you enjoy it rather than selling for relatively small money.
