    I would call Sweetwater and checkout a new one. I have a 2017 MIM Stratocaster with HSH Pickups and I LOVE it. If memory serves me correctly it was under $600.00 IMG_1617296075607.jpg 41TDUl3lcVL._AC_SY780_.jpg 417pdpXvIzL._AC_SY780_.jpg

    They have redesigned the coil splitting system on the newer models unless you know that you want to stick with the traditional single coil pickups

    I think $500 is OK price if everything is good. The corrosion would not bother me, adds charm. Which shop has it? I'm not on the market but if it's nearby I'd check it out just to have some fun.

    All things considered, a new player is $800 and player plus is $1000 so $ 500 retail seems not to be out of line.
    Private sales will be less though.

    The corroded tuners should discount the price by maybe $50.

    Check out the rest of the guitar for corrosion, saddles, bridge Trem section etc.

    Maybe some metal polish will sort them out.
