Strat dating christian dating sites for over 40

During initial assembly of the very first 1982 AVRI stratocasters, Fender had many problems with completed pickup assemblies fitting in the pickup and control cutouts.

The Charley replicas sold for $2500, and are now selling for $3500 if you can find one. Fender's Custom Shop employs some of the best craftsman in the business, and it is not unusual for their guitars to sell for thousands of dollars due to the number of hours spent handcrafting each guitar.

It is certainly not unusual for artwork to sell for $10,000, and that's one way to look at this guitar.

The early AVRI strat bodies produced at the Fullerton, CA plant (1982-1984) had many characteristic features from the later strat bodies produced at the Corona, CA plant (1985-present).

Namely, the rear cutout on Fullerton era strats were deeper, longer, and had a more subtle transition into the rest of the body.

I believe the first Tribute Strat is JC044 and the last JC229. Stevie's guitar is one of the most easily identifiable, famous guitars in history, and folks other than Fender have made dozens of replicas of Number One at prices from several hundred to five thousand dollars.
