Hi,

I have a '79 Greco SE600J I'm considering to sell, but I would like some advice on what price tag I should put on it.

I switched the electronics and pickguard to a prewired DiMarzio Area - I still have the original pickguard with Excel pickups. The body has a lovely vintage white look, but the it has a lot of dings and dongs after almost 40 years of use. It's definitely not a closet classic The frets are worn. It's playable for sure, but it probably need a refret within a few years, and it could use an adjustment as well. The intonation is ok, but not good. Neck is straight.

Any advice will be appreciated

First place you want to look are prior auctions of them on eBay and Reverb. Quick glance told me that they range from $599 - $800

Thanks for the reply.

I have seen the auctions on ebay and reverb, but as far as I have noticed they are all unmodified SE600J's with mint-ish or at least good condition when looking at the lacquer.

Mine is a bit beat up, but with brand new electronics, and I have no idea how that will affect the price. I can imagine that the bad condition on the laquer and the frets would count negative on the price, but I'm not sure about the new electronics, as it is now a modified strat compared to the original.

How much do you want for it? Using that, you can set a reserve, opening bid amount or just launch it with a 0 opening bid and see where it goes from there.
