Thanks for allowing this post.
Nice looking guitar but your starting bid is kinda high. Looks like a 2001, by the serial number. There are several stores in my area where I can get a brand new MIM for $300. I realize you replaced the pups but, like anything else, you never recover the money back on upgrades when you sell. Good luck though, it really is a looker.

Hey Stingx, yeah, I thought I would start high and see if I can recover, if not, then I will repost with a lower starting bid.

Thanks for looking though, and I agree, its a beauty.

How much?

My word, you collonials have it easy!

300$ for a MIM Strat, in round figures that's £167 - the price of the bottom end Squiers! A typical new UK price is £325. The Noisless PUPS in UK prices are £170 ish per set. Yes, that's more than the US cost of the whole guitar!

We do have shipping and taxes to account for, but that still gets nowhere near explaining the difference. I buy most of my parts from the US and save oodles of cash.

I've an 04 US Strat (UK Sourced) that I've fitted locking tuners and vintage noiseless pups (US sourced) to at at a total cost of £730.19, that's about $1134 US.
