    Looks like a legitimate American Standard Strat. What year is it?

    The serial number will denote the year.

    Yeah that case is really cool. I have one. But don't expect to put anything other than the guitar in it. It barely fits my strap when folded up.

    Yep, I have one, and it's a good, compact, strong, sturdy, lightweight case, but you can't fit any accessories in it. Maybe your strap (unless you have a big wide leather strap, then it's a tight fit), and a Snark tuner, but thats about it.

    Nothing on that guitar says "fake" to me. Looks 100% like a legit American Standard Strat.

    If the price is good, buy it and don't give it any worries.

    I was going to say it looks like an American Standard to me, but a couple of guys who know these guitars better than I do have already said it's OK. That would be good enough for me. Great colour - Lake Placid Blue?

    When did they stop using those cast saddles & switch to the bent steel ones?

    My memory fails me. Either 2008 or 2012. That was why I asked what year it was.

    I wanna say it was 2012, the same year they changed to Fat '50s pickups, but I'm not sure.

    2008 was the first year for the return of the bent saddles.
