Good points, it's just that every time I try to sell the '77 strat, I don't get a lot of interest and I usually get a lot of lowballers reminding me what a POS those year Fenders were. I do admit it is the "lazy" way but it's also convenient as neither of us has to worry about shipping, we are trying to work out a face to face meeting since I'm driving upstate NY Tuesday and I'll pass about an hour form where he lives. I told him the Tele was off the table and we're still negotiating. he's still leaning towards adding something to the two guitars, I might offer an amp. Nothing fancy.
