The replicas of Clapton's Gibson 335 had an original price of ,000.The bottom line is that ,000 is not unusual in the guitar market, particularly considering that some vintage electrics are listed at up to 0,000.

The SRV Strat debuted at the Los Angeles NAMM show in January 1992 and started hitting music stores by March.

It is not a limited edition guitar, and is readily available today.

Lenny is certainly nowhere near the iconic guitar that Number One is.

With the significantly higher price and production number, it is difficult to imagine it will share in the immediate appreciation that Number One experienced.

In late 2013 or early 2014, I confirmed a sale of $57,000.

If you have personal knowledge of a sale, I would be interested to hear what the price was, and when.

The price had dropped to around ,000 by early 2009.

FURTHER UPDATE 6/09: I am told by Guitar Center that they have reconsidered the price drop, believe in the long-term value of this guitar and have rasied the retail price back to ,000.

I believe the first Tribute Strat is JC044 and the last JC229. Stevie's guitar is one of the most easily identifiable, famous guitars in history, and folks other than Fender have made dozens of replicas of Number One at prices from several hundred to five thousand dollars.
