The Value of a Fender Stratocaster? It Depends

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.”

—2 Corinthians 4:7

I read about someone who just paid one million dollars for a Fender Stratocaster. Why so much? It was the guitar Bob Dylan played at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival.


General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

The festival was a defining moment for Dylan, who went from playing acoustic to electric. The folk purists saw this as an act of treachery.

That purchase may make a little more sense than the person who paid $380,000 for a burned guitar. That was also a Fender Strat, but it was played by Jimi Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival. He played the song “Wild Thing” and then set his guitar on fire!

The value in both of these guitars was in who played them. If I were to play a Strat, it would go down in value. But, get Hendrix or Dylan or Eric Clapton to play it and the value goes up.

The disciples’ greatness was not because of who they were as individuals. It was because of who called and used them.

“This priceless treasure we hold, so to speak, in a common earthenware jar to show that the splendid power of it belongs to God and not to us. We are handicapped on all sides, but we are never frustrated; we are puzzled, but never in despair. We are persecuted, but we never have to stand it alone: We may be knocked down but we are never knocked out!” (2 Corinthians 4:7–9 PHI).
