So I got this fender American strat from Craigslist guy that sold it sold it real cheap. I bought it cause it was a good deal not because I need it. I'm going to keep it for at least a little while and play it. But I'll probably resell. I looked on eBay and all the 60's reissues sell for like 2000 us at the cheapest I saw the custom shops are a lot more. I paid ALOT less than this. My question is what exactly do I have cause I can't get a price for resell. The saddles were replaced with graphtech block saddles and the tone has a split coil switch. The one tone now controls all pickups

It's a 2005 or 2006 'Diamond Anniversary' model made in Corona CA.
What does the neck plate say on it?
Is the HB pkup in the bridge position original? And what is it? Sometimes they're Duncans.
With out the orig bridge saddles and that modded 'switch' it's probably worth around $1000 (US).
Get it back to stock and you can get more dough for it.

Maybe $1500 if you get it back to stock. Do you have the original case?

As is, $900 easily but probably $1000 if you're patient.

Nice looking guitar. Yeah, i agree with Klasaine. If you're looking to turnaround this guitar for the biggest profit possible then putting the original parts on this model is the way to go. Most people looking for vintage reissues are looking for guitars with the original specs in tack, as it makes them more collectible... even if the new features are a nice upgrade.

That being said, from what you paid for this guitar sounds like you got yourself a hell of a bargain. smile.gif

That also looks like it has the S1 switching system. Does the centre of the Volume Knob press inwards at all??

Ah, right! In that case i'm guessing that the neck and middle are Fenders N 3 noiseless Alnico P/Ups. My gut instinct is that the Bucker is aftermarket and that this is a 60th Anniversary 'Deluxe', hence the S1 set up.
