    Need to sell a strat one is a black Squier SE in great shape with CAE serial number intact. The other is an unknown basswood body with a Squier neck no serial number but I nice looking burst body. Both play great. Both modded similar. Would it be best to keep the SE with intact serial number?

    What say you

    If they're both full size bodies I would keep the sunburst, just because I like it better than black. Though I do have a black SE heavily modded that I like alot. But I do think about changing the body or painting it. Black/rosewood is my least favorite color combo. I'm shallow, looks matter to me. lol.

    Imagine this:
    Your dream gig is about to happen. You need to leave, out the door, in 1 minute. Put your shoes on, grab a guitar...So, which one are you taking? Which one is more exciting/inspiring/reliable? Grab that one. That’s your keeper.

    Sell the other.

    We can’t decide this for you. Some folks will say, black guitars are best. Looking at you @Paruwi. And @GeorgeA who already commented is going to suggest the burst.

    The one that you are more drawn to playing is the one you should keep.

    Honestly, neither one is worth very much money. Just keep the one you like the best and sell the other.

    Keep the black one, unless it has a rosewood fretboard. In that case, flip a coin. ;)

    Or, put them both on eBay, or CL, etc.. Keep the one that doesn't sell.

    You could always just part BOTH of them out, and buy another MIM... :p
    Around here at least, anything saying Squier on it doesn’t sell for much anyway, no matter how nice it is (or what mods were done) so I wouldn’t worry about what either said on them. At one point I had a good half-dozen highly modified partscasters, and I’d be lucky to sell them for more than $50 each. I ended up parting them out online and getting way more, even with shipping and fees and such.

    So in other words, you always sell the black one.

    They're both Squier SE's. Does it really matter which you keep? Keep the one you like best.

    Keep them both if you cannot decide.
