    Yeah, that looks nice.....but I'd rather put together a "player" partscaster for half that price and twice the fun!

    I just picked up a black one a few days ago. For as long as Fender made these they sure don't pop up very often.

    It's a rare one :eek: get it if you can! I'm pretty sure you can sell it on reverb for 2k.

    It is really quite difficult to tell what these are worth in the used market. The 2018 price guide states $725-$975 which seems low. Not many reported sales on Ebay (at least within the USA). I'm interested in this guitar....but I'd need to buy it 'right'. I don't see any $2K sales for similar guitars. The one that I am looking at seems likely to be a 2005 model but I can't be sure without Fender's assistance on Monday.

    Well the guy pulled that guitar off of CL back in April so I had assumed it was gone. I've been thinking about it ever since and it reappeared this week. I made him a deal for $1100 and showed up today to take a peek. Rougher than he had indicated. Dirty. Some lacquer checking. A few dings here and there. Binding at front edge coming apart. I passed. Sigh.

    Glad the guitar was real. Our CL is full of scam ads with no guitar. I don't bother anymore.
