    I picked up a midnight wine strat on reverb. It was listed as an 06 and the serial # begins MZ6... But it doesnt have the badge on the back of the headstock or the neck plate. Is this an early 07 model clearing out the last of the 06 neck stock or could this be a legit 06 strat?

    You really need to get some photo's up on the screen Boogie Man. Hopefully @Guitarmageddon will be along, and he'll certainly put you right I'm sure.. :thumb:

    Totally off topic, but does your family make goalie pads?

    Jeez.. I nearly fell off my seat laughing.. wrong family Boogie.. :D

    By the way, I'm not up on the serial number stuff, but from what I see in your photo's that's definitely a genuine MIM Fender..

    Awesome, glad to have figured it out!

    I had a mim just like it in 04 and sold it in 07 to a girl I knew. Crazy how things go. I want to put a crunch lab in the bridge a chopper in the middle and a BC-1 in the neck on some aged white pearloid. Partscasters aren't worth anything but I think it'll be a grand slam for me.
