    Hey all!

    I'm thinking about putting a '57 reissue, in what I think is a rare color, out there on the market. It's from 92 or 93, and in good shape. I can't find ANY of these that have sold on ebay recently so really I have no other guide than to ask the experts here! From what I've been told, the neck pickup is original, while a previous owner changed the middle and bridge to noiseless. It's a great guitar, but my tele is favorite, and since I only use a strat for a Floyd tribute band, I might pick up something with 22 frets (that damn bend in Money!) and a flatter radius. Thanks dudes!

    I'm sorry to say that they haven't really picked up much value.
    I say that because I just traded my '87 Mary Kay for a new Gibson Traditional (with P-90s) for an even swap. (or roughly $2000).
    Good luck though!!

    Thank you! Yeah, I wasn't expecting any sort of huge appreciation, however I didn't buy the guitar, just received it in a trade for a G&L Asat, so I have no idea what it's original value is either! I'll probably shoot for $1500ish on CL then and be open to other offers.

    I think thats a good price, but i would look into if it was a special run. If it is, it might be more valuable. Even if its not, the fiesta red color is higly sought after and you might get someone to bite for more than $1500, if you have all the case candy and ohsc.
