Considering that I sold my '98 American Standard for over $700, 6 bills is a good deal.

What would you tell this certain someone?
Keep the Zion.
The older Zions are very good guitars.
Phil Keaggy used to play them if I'm not mistaken.

Haha I don't think I could pry that Zion from his dead hands. That's his favorite guitar ever. I'm just saying I have gotten a very bad strat bug and have been listening to a lot of John Mayer and Lincoln Brewster lately. And am kinda wanting a strat now.....

What do you guys think of this one?

It's hard to say. It sounds like the guy puts a lot of care and detail into the guitar, but at the end of the day it's still a partscaster.

I'd go with a peavey USA over a partscaster. Id also assemble a warmoth one over that partscaster for roughly the same cost.

You could buy a used MIM Strat for much less and it'd probably be of equal quality.

But would it be a better bang for the buck than what else I could get for Under $500 or close that price range?

I'm really not wanting to build my own guitar right now. I just want something I can play. I think CheshireCat almost led me down that road when I first started posting around here. *Shudder*

Meh...IMO, not really. In that same price range you could probably score a near mint Fender Lite Ash Stratocaster and be happy.

and that is where our subjectivity divides us. While I can appreciate a well done relic, and I do like the way the body looks on that guitar, the neck just looks...weird...to me.

The combination of logo and oversized headstock looks off to me. It just doesn't look quite original.

From reading the ad copy, it looks like he bought a bunch of Mighty Mite/All Parts stuff, slapped a Fender logo on the neck and then relic'd it all...

But couldn't that also be considered a cool quirk that adds character?

MIghty Mite and All Parts are bad?

which could be easily done for less with warmoth with far superior quality.

Dude, seriously, mighty mite and all parts stuff or a real fender for very similar prices...
