Question for all you reranchers out there. I have a project on the board, that am delving all my time into. I'm also moving. Soooo.. I have '65 Mustang body that needs a little attention to wiring, and pickguard (body itself is amazing! repainted in the 80's). Came with a Squire Strat neck (also from the 80's). Should I...

a) Move it with me, and finish it like I was going to, but knowing can't get to it until next year?

b) Sell it on eBay as is, in parts, for a decent amount (hopefully)?

If anyone might be interested, I can get a few pics up later today. Only bad part the screws, etc.. are in storage.

If you've spent this much time on it, you'll regret giving it up someday...

Are you attached to either piece? How are you going to address the Mustang needing a shorter neck? If you don't need the money, you might keep the pieces and have something to get you started after you're settled.

Never sell anything. Laughing

My wife doesn't agree with my theory, but in 20 years, you'll be happy you didn't!

If you're anything like me , You will kick yourself in the a$$ if you sell it- Take it from one who traded in a 1958 les paul ga 40 amp in the early 70's for a 1971 univox B series tube amp " because bigger was better- I would Kill, and bury the bodies to find that little tweed and have her again- Keep it !!!
