    In excellent to mint condition, what would the going used rate be? And.....go.

    Would I get more parting out the body, loaded pickguard and neck?

    You'll probably get more parting it out; however, that's just my opinion from experience.

    What would you say if fair market value in tact?

    Would the neck and body just be a MIM neck & body respectively?

    Thank you,
    Chris

    you are really only looking at maybe the higher end of MIM used. you aren't going to be able to charge a premium due to the pickups if that is what you are thinking. currently around $350 maybe a tad higher but i wouldn't count on it. bottom line is that while nice guitars MIMs are a dime a dozen and so are the parts.

    If it has Texas Specials, it's a Deluxe Roadhouse, which is actually a REALLY nice MIM guitar.
    9.5 in radius neck, middle pickup is RWRP, so pretty quiet.
    I had one, sold to a friend, and have missed having it since.

    That is it. Satin finish too. I just didn't bond with it.

    If it's a MIM Roadhouse it shouldn't have a satin finish unless someone did a home-brew job on it. I just sold one of those about a month ago and have regretted it ever since.

    Neck on mine was satin finish. I bought it new.

    Neck yes, body no. Thought he meant the body was satin.
