    I have a Stratocaster I bought in the late 90s and am looking to sell it. Absolutely no damage or wear. I never got good and am looking to sell it now. image.jpg

    I'm pretty sure that's not a Mexican Standard.

    I think it's a Special. Before selling maybe get in touch with Fender with your serial number and nail down what the model is.

    IMO it should go for a bit more than a MIM Standard and is a lot harder to come by.

    Too bad @Guitarmageddon has left the forum. He was very knowledgeable and a great resource to this site.

    Edit. Guitarmageddon still saved the day. Found an old post of his where he called it a Tex Mex Stratocaster, then looked up Tex Mex Stratocaster.

    This pretty much looks like it.

    That guitar will generate a ton of interest on its looks alone. Did it have that yellowish finish brand new?

    Think it's a tex mex strat. I sold one just like it about 8 years ago for about $350. Probably be about $500 in my area now.

    Worth $500 easily.

    This according to Fjestad's Blue Book.

    What it's worth and what someone will pay are 2 different things.
    Post it for sale and see what offers you get.
    Best of luck

    I sold a pristine '99 MIM Standard Strat about a year ago for $400 at the peak of the 'rona buying frenzy. No hardshell case though.
