    Never seen a custom Strat like that before. I'd be real leery of that. $900 for a custom shop Strat?

    FENDER CUSTOM SHOP style STRAT

    Who knows, though? Hard to tell from a distance. The neck looks kind of real, but hard to see any detail.

    The ad says the body and neck are from Warmoth so I guess it's got replica/fake Fender decals (including the Custom Shop decal on the back of the headstock).

    I HATE fakes, forgeries and frauds.
    This is not a Fender and it is not a "Strat" !

    Me too! Shame about the false decals though. That would put me off buying it.

    Yes but nothing a few minutes of sanding won't take care of ;)

    Why oh why
    This may be be the best guitar ever but
    putting a fake decal on it automatically disqualifies the seller
    from everything.

    Not a real CS or even ‘Fender’ but that shouldn’t disqualify it as an awesome guitar. I have MIA, MIM but my favourite Telecaster is a Partscaster.
    I was once tempted to throw a Fender decal on the headstock, but quickly regained my sanity. Some people fall into the trap of thinking it should have a Fender decal.
    It certainly doesn’t mean that the guitar is not a great guitar, or that there is a lack of integrity on the part of the seller. If you’re in the market, check the guitar out, you’re not going into it misinformed.

    It could be a great guitar.
    My telestrat is nice. The guy who sold it to me said that the Fender decal was on the neck when he got it. Certainly not really Fender. I would make a mess trying to remove it....

    It's a cool looking guitar, though.

    Too bad it's not genuine Fender.

    Looks like someone was trying to create a stagemaster while on LSD.

    I dunno, I would be tempted to offer $250 to "take it off your hands."
