I have a 1997 Collector's Edition Fender Stratocaster that I'd like to trade for a high-end 5-string bass. I am primarily a bass player, so I don't use the Strat much and would like it to go to someone who will play it as it deserves. I'd really hate to see it go. But I am ready to upgrade from 4 strings to 5, and can't afford to keep the Strat and buy a nice bass. I am interested in American-made G&Ls, Laklands, Fender Deluxe P, Ken Smiths, Roscoes, and others of comparable quality. If interested, please email me. About the Strat: Only 1,997 were made. I am the 2nd owner. The original owner bought it new in '97 for about $1800. Condition-wise, I'd give it an 8.5/10. It's all original and comes with original gold-lined deluxe tolex case. Email me if you'd like full specs and photos. Thanks!
