I saw a used Fender 2013 Road Worn 1950S Stratocaster for $399. It looks just like the one in the video below.
Do you think that's a good price?

Yes. IMO, counter to what you might expect of anything with fake road wear, these are actually some of the nicest feeling Strats that Fender makes right now. And they are something like $800 new I think?

If they have the vintage radius it's a good deal, if they don't then it's an average price for an average Strat.

Dillion is right. They are some of the best feeling strats . Especially for the money. You just need to like relicking.

the roadworns I've seen recently have been a bit better relic wise, but I'm no expert, and coming from a position of hatred for the whole relic concept, I've come to appreciate them more
