by Vlady

Please, could you tell me cca how much is worth original finish on a fender stratocaster from 1955-1963?
You know, how much lost the guitar from price, when is refinished?
Many thanks!


Hi, Vlady--

Collectors are looking for original condition guitars, which is what Blue Book prices are based on.

Refinishing is THE major factor and will lower the value by 50% or more from BLue Book prices.
