    That is definitely not Fender... stay VERY far away from that thing... looks like it'll give you some disease...
    So much wrong with that guitar, that's the weirdest thing I've ever seen.

    Stay away from that. Run at top speed. That’s not even CLOSE to being a real Fender neck, let alone a complete Fender.

    Also, is that a LIPSTICK pickup in the bridge? Or a rails humbucker? I can’t tell on my phone. You do NOT want a lipstick there. The neck pickup looks nutty too.

    If you can get it for $50 U.S., okay. But be prepared to change everything.

    HI, & welcome aboard !

    that headstock look so wrong, think it's a part caster of some sort, if it's super cheap and plays good it might be worth a shot, but it's definitely not a fender from what i can see form these pics.

    Have fun !

    Going off the look of the neck pickup & the 'string bar' on the headstock, it could be a 1960's Teisco Tele from Japan. I have a 60's Teisco/ Kawai bass with similar hardware. Not the best bass in the world but it did cost £8.00. I would have that if it was cheap enough.

    for pennies it might be a fun project to strip and partscast the neck pickup is a Kawaii S2T( Used in Tiesco 60 guitars) , and the bridge is some sort of rail, the headstock is wrong for fender , fender NEVER used that type of string reainer , that is from a 60's tiesco type guitar , the fender decal is a waterslide fake I cant say about the body from those photos but it may be a fun project to make it playable , but it will never be as advertised!

    It looks like the string tree could double as a retainer.

    Hello and welcome - I'll join the others and note the first thing I saw wrong was the string retainer. While it might be playable and it might sound okay, it's not likely to be an actual fender product. Run away, or buy at great discount (if you dare spend more than 20E)

    Peace - Deeve

    I thought that it was okay to put Fender decals on non-Fender guitars. Isn't that the opinion of most people here?

    I went there with a thread. I feared a lynching.
