You coming thru Shreveport? I’ll give you top dollar. Let’s get an honest opinion(value) from frettshack and go from there, I’ll help a young LSU student out.

Don't sell it! Start playing it again and forgo the rediculous ski trip.

I'm not going to speculate on current street/market, Reverb's "price guide" and eBay's "completed auctions" search will show actual recent completed transactions and tell a seller what he needs to know.

As far as value, I'll only say no way in hell I'd liquidate a clean, stock late 80s American Standard Stratocaster to pay for a vacation. But that's just me.

Glad to see you have your priorities straight.

Wonder how long the first string has been broken. And if that's going to require the new owner to dump some repair money into it.

I didn’t know that was a thing, what’s the worst case scenario?

Sell that ish bro, especially if it's your first time going skiing. Nothing compares to the LSU ski trip, I went 4 years in a row and some of my best memories in college happened on those trips.

You say you haven't played it in two years, you won't miss it a bit...but you will kick your own arse for what you missed out on when you hear the stories people tell when they get back. Take the money and run.

FWIW I sold my dirtbike to go on my first ski trip, no regrets at all. When I decided I missed it enough, I bought another dirt bike.

You're a damned GAS enabler and hoarder enabler.

But correct... Words NEVER spoken. "I wish I sold that guitar when I had the chance."

Its an American Strat it will always have a market. Sounds like FretShack might make you an offer. But given his profession he may sound like Rick from Pawn Stars.

That thing was loved/abused by someone.

BTW what type of bench do you have? I see the holes for dogs. You make it yourself or cobble something together to fit your needs?

ETA Those pickups? Isn't there a story to those PU's a special designer or a new for the time technology? YouTube video I saw many moons ago may have said something about them??

re: Selling a Guitar (pictures updated to OP)
I got that bench at Harbor Freight ... it was big, sturdy and affordable. I plugged most of the peg holes because I don't use them.

Google "Wide Range Humbuckers" for the full story on Fender's 1970s honkers. WRHs were designed for Fender by Seth Lover, who invented the humbucker for Gibson in the 1950s. Yes, those highly coveted PAFs.

This Thinline lost its original pickups and has reissue WRHs that unfortunately have nothing in common with the originals. But I'm getting ready to wind custom humbuckers of my own design for it.

My winds will utilize some reissue components, namely the caps and baseplates. But I will be introducing threaded rod magnets and steel internal reflector plates like original WRHs.

Plus some other secret hoodoo of my own under the hood - on which I won't elaborate - to make them my own mad creation.

Won’t a semi hollow get screechy trying to shred with it? I say shred because much of what you seem to post as your personal guitars are p90 crunchy or Floyd Rose thrashy. We all mellow with age. Or maybe I’ve pegged you dead wrong.

Who said I wanted to shred with a Thinline? I'd say you erroneously painted me solely in the hard rock corner.

Anyway, meanwhile, let's get back on topic ... the guy who wants to part with a clean and stock 30-plus year-old American Standard Strat for, eh, something else.

Has that ring to it....
that you often read in forums...

Where someone asks about a certain model or guitar and three people respond they once had one of those, they're great, I wish i had it back. If you ever at the right price...

(not that I know anything about an American Strat - just getting that vibe)
