So I've been offered a John Mayer signature Strat in a trade. Has the Big Dipper pickups still and the neck and back of the body are untouched. However here's the bad part.. A previous owner did a very poor and deep relic job on the front of the body. I know this torches the value and it will probably be easier to sell it as parts (pickups, neck, trem etc).

Just looking for people's advice on how much the value takes a hit.. The front of the body is really bad.. Lol

If it's as bad as you say I'd go $500 and get the body refinished. It's a nice Strat.

There are a few members here who are more than capable of doing a great job on that guitar. Providing he hasn't gouged the hell out of the top that is.

Depends on the trade. The guitar has been severely devalued but may still be a good guitar. Even refinished it will be devalued, but if you want a Mayer Strat at a bargain price and don't care about the looks or refinishing, it may be a deal to you. Just don't count on resale value in the future.

In a word, no.
