    What do you guys think would be an approximate value of this neck, to sell locally? I haven’t bought or sold strat stuff in quite awhile, not quite sure where to start, on this one.

    It’s a 2002 highway 1 neck. Plays great, cosmetically, the previous owner drilled holes for vintage tuners, and the string tree is obviously not original. It’s got some dings in the headstock, not cosmetically perfect by any standard.

    any ballpark would be helpful. I’m going to keep it attached, so a potential buyer can try it before they buy it. I realize the local market is a bit below what I’d get, selling online and shipping it. Another option would be just to sell it without the tuners and take the string tree off.
    Thanks for the help A6E5548C-0C47-4EB8-8C2F-1A36DEFD837F.jpeg 03849D62-CF3E-4DD9-9E3C-606F43FF342A.jpeg 8D7E2DC2-74D1-4EDE-8B70-3929205F9BFC.jpeg

    $250 to $300+ from what I have seen on reverb. For $200 it would go fast.

    Is that satin or gloss finish?
    I bought an 02 MIA neck like that used for $250 and it has satin fretboard with gloss on the back

    Back is definitely gloss, I think the fretboard is somewhere in between. I would consider it somewhat glossy, but not a full sheen. May have originally been matte but over the years some shine has rubbed back in.

    thanks for the input, too! I set the listing at 200. That should offset the imperfect condition and the shipping hassles, I hope.

    Semi-gloss was the term I was meant

    Oh ok. Then yep, I’d say semi-gloss is accurate. Not full glossy like a classic series, not bare wood looking, either.

    Re installing vintage tuners will cover all the holes on the back. It may need adaptor bushes, if the larger holes have been reamed out.

    Yeah, definitely. I’ll save that for the next owner to do, though. This neck was kinda just sitting around never being played. Since I just bought a 900 buck Jaguar (very expensive for me), it’s time for a few unused things to go, to justify it.

    Same here. The last one I sold was a couple of years ago and it went for $315.

    Where would you price this one?? It's a 2006. Ebay doesn't seem to have many for sale for me to value

    That’s a 06 HW1 right? I love those necks got one in RW. Frets look ok so I’d say $250-300. I bought a new 17 for around $350 I forgot exactly. It has a mat finish and I wish it was gloss.

    Fender sells those new for $479, so somewhere south of that.
