Just sell the Eclipse. You should be able to get enough to buy a used American Strat.
I did the ad a a FS/FT. Not even one offer for a straight sale...not even a low ball offer. I reached out to my guitar tech today to let his clients know. He owns two Eclipses so he should be able to be a good pitch man. Value-wise he knows an American Standard or Deluxe for my Eclipse is a win for the guy trading the strat.
