That is not a Lead II. It's a Fender American Standard Stratocaster with a Fender Lead II neck on it. As it is--it's worth about $500 (tops) if it's all in good shape and working properly.

The Lead II was a different beast. See pic below.

Notice the body shape, pickguard shape, output jack, etc.

I loved my brand spanking new 1982 Lead 2. I had possession of it for several WEEKS before someone freakin' disappeared with it.

All it would have taken was a big name like Beck or Clapton to have played one alot and the Lead series would still be around ..Moon Martin and Steve Morse were the only guys I ever saw play them that had any kind of fame ....the pickups in them was also an issue ..the humbuckers tended to squeal with high gain and the single coil in the bridge was kinda nasally to my ears ..I own 8 of these and they all have been modded to some degree..also the two toggles were a pain at times !!! Out of phase just never sounded good to me !!!

I recall Elliott Easton (The Cars) played a Lead II in the earlier days of the band.
