    Hey everyone! Just stalking CL for an MIA with a bridge humbucker and wanted to get opinions on if this one looks correct. Looks good to me, but what's throwing me off is the seller added a CS neck plate. He admits doing it in the ad so maybe I'm just being paranoid.

    Here is the link (I can post photos if you can't see them in the link for some reason):

    Thanks, all!

    Not sure Sienna Sunburst was a $200 upgrade. Just had communication with Fender on a 2010 American Standard in Sienna Sunburst and below is excerpted from the specs they sent me:

    “Ash on:
    (747)** Sienna Sunburst, *add $100.00 for Special Wood Requirements,
    Neck: Maple, Modern “C” Shape,
    (Gloss Headstock Face with Satin Urethane Finish on Back of Neck)”

    Just FYI.

    It's legit, but $900 is not an "incredible bargain".

    Acoustotron is right on the price.
    This is from the 2008 Fender Frontline catalog

    Oh yeah, I'm not paying $900. I'll make the guy a fair offer, of course, but I just wanted to get the ST seal of approval since that changed neck plate make me second guess myself. Thanks, all!

    It really REALLY looks good. The Custom Shop neck plate for me is a BONUS!

    I would offer maybe $750 or $800 !

    See I'm the opposite. I'd remove the CS neck plate since it's not a CS guitar. Otherwise it feels like trying to be something it's not. Still a sweet guitar for sure. I used to have a 2011 Am Std Sienna with RW board.

    I'm with you on this part. It's a great looking guitar, but I will definitely be replacing the neck plate.
