Members WildWill Posted January 20, 2010 Members Share Posted January 20, 2010 I had some time to kill this morning so I stopped in to a local used music gear store. They usually have some interesting stuff in addition to the usual suspects so it's a fun way to pass some time. Anyways, I was perusing the Fender/Squier wall and saw a BEAUTIFUL Fender Strat hanging there, with the most gorgeous birdseye maple neck that I've seen since I saw one on a G&L last year. The body was lighter than Fenders Vintage White, but much creamier, or beige-er?, than Olympic White. The headstock had the gold Fender logo outlined in black on the front, with nothing else. On the back was a stick-on price tag ($719) that someone had peeled mostly off. The price tag had printed on it "Lite Ash Fender Stratocaster". I lifted the loose portion of the tag to see what was under it since it covered the serial number area of the head stock. Under it, in black block letters were "s/n #" with the actual numbers having been pulled off and stuck to the back of the sticker. And below that, almost fully intact, it said "Crafted in Korea". Down under the nut area it had a black circular sticker, like an inspection sticker, that had "CE" on it. So my question is, would it be a Fender? Or possibly a Squier that someone put a Fender logo on? Or...? I mean, the neck was beautiful. Satin finish birdseye maple. I should have gotten pictures to post but I didn't have a lot of time and there were other guitars I needed to look at. Oh, it had a Fender neckplate as well. It said Fender only, not Corona or anything else. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
