Good morning, mate.

By that serial number, an American made Fender Stratocaster would have been made at the
Fullerton Plant (Fender - CBS Era), USA, in 1974.
Production Number: 523362

Do you want to know an approximate value on the current market?

Nev,

She's worth £1,800 to £2,200 in really great condition.

The after-market paint-job will devalue it a bit, to most collectors.

Can you post a photo of that old girl?

And I would say that, based upon overall condition, and considering the after-market tuners, scratch-plate, and paint job, you could easily sell it in the UK for £1,400.

It's not that the modifications probably aren't an improvement, it's just a fact of life with guitar collectors. All-original, bone-stock is the order of the day with those cats.

Me personally, I love what you have done with the guitar.
