    Default 63 Strat

    I am the original owner of a '63 Strat, but its not in original condition. I've painted it several times, changed the decal on the head, added 2 switches. It is currently green metalflake, and has been played in several bands, including The Surfaris. (Best of the Surfaris Live, Beach party and the singe Punkline. How much did all this paint and glitter cost me as to value? Thank you, Kelly Lammers.

    Painting cuts the value in half...removing the headstock decal even more...messing with the electronics even more again...does it still have the original pickups...bridge...pegs..pickguard...when painted it also becomes next to impossible to date the body....has the neck been refinished also..??

    Yeah, it's crazy, ain't it? When we were growing up, they were just used guitars. How did we know they were gonna be worth big bucks someday. Hindsight is a heart breaker.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.

    Of course, the OP is long gone, and I'm thinking he might have made all of this up. If he did, he's a troll. If he didn't he has made bad decisions.
