Hello, couple month ago I found an add about supposedly American Fender strat for sale. It is quite an interesting case. I have talked with the salesman on the phone but it seems he has no clue about guitars at all. All he could tell the guitar (you can see in the pictures) is an American strat and I should "come over to see if I like it" (although I am not motivated to take the trip if it is a fake). I saw his other posts. He was selling some other guitars and all of them were justifiable. Some of them were in pretty bad shape. However all of them had serial numbers except this one. Also most of other guitar were made in Mexico My observations: It is claimed to be American guitar however asking price fits Mexican price range Fender Custom Shop G&G case (?!) which alone costs about 150 bucks Fender decal seems right size and placed correctly Biggest deal breaker - no serial number visible in front or back on the heastock. Neither near or on the neck plate Flat sawn neck? It is quite rare on newer guitars. Might be Chinese replacement neck? Truss rod not accessible on the heastrock (might be common for custom shop and reissue models?) Tuners look legit although they are not lined perfectly straight. Bent steel saddles also seem to be real Maybe you notice something I missed? Is this a fake? Maybe a reissue? Or real body partcaster with Chinese neck? Any thought, guys?
