    are those fakes, or did Fender just put them on that strangely?

    As far as I know both came out of the factory looking like that, except the modified pickup and guard in Van Halens strat.

    Alright I've done some digging online and apparently the one Eddie is playing is a vintage partcaster, body is from. 59 the neck has a 65 transition style decal but looking at the rosewood fingerboard at the headstock it reveals to be a slab board so it puts itself from 59-62. It could have been the case that the neck was sent to Fender for work in mid 60s and came back wearing a 65 transition decal.

    That's my guess, off to bed now it's late here. The Dick Dale Stratocaster I'm pretty sure it's fully legit.

    I think both of those guys should be banned from the forum for using fake decals.

    Dale must have asked Fender to do it that way,not slightly misaligned but put in the flat out wrong location.Van Halens is only slightly better.
