I have a friend that have so many expensive guitars, that he must sell one to buy another one x) Evil circle..
back to topic!!

He wants to sell a Fender Custom classic player strat. (think that's the right name), for 3500$


I think this is a smart buy, 'cause this guitar will just raise in value. Am I right ??


Thanks Vebjørn biggrin.gif

Does it look something like THIS

I see their are Classic Players that are not from the custom shop which sell for around $800 US. The Custom Shop model is probably quite a bit more.

HERE is an add for one at 1100 Euro's

But I still wonder if it's gonna raise in prize, 'cause it's a custom shop.

$3500 seems high, but I don't know for sure.

Sorry mate - I read Sterling Pounds, not Euro. biggrin.gif Either way that ad shows a guitar that's $750 cheaper than $3500.

Perhaps it "will just raise in value" for the seller if he gets it sold for that much.

It's too expensive IMO. It's true that it will get high in value but not that high if you know what I mean. I think you can find reissue strats that cost considerably less and are IMO great sounding guitars.

I think you should go for a strat in a shop...Its true that value remains the same and maybe rises over time for quality instruments but that price is pretty high..

hmmm I agree with the guys here, seems a bit expensive to me, it would have to be something extra ordinarily fantastic for that price imo.
I`m not so sure it would be such a smart buy, you may well get your money back later on if its pristine etc but I think you`d have to wait quite a fair bit of time for that?

From other threads I realized that guitars are quite expensive in Norway (as they are for instance in Brazil).

But if you are thinking of this as securing money, you will have to realize that you will not be able to sell it for this price in other countries... So I don't think it's a good buy. A good buy would be to get in the US and re-sell in Norway wink.gif

I would say 3500$ is way too much. You can get great custom shop fenders on eBay for less than that.
It wouldnt raise much in value either, unless you keep it in pristine condition for 20-40 years.
