Hi, forgive me but I'm new to the forum. I am in the market to purchase a 60s pre CBS strat and came across this one online. I am not super familiar with the little distinguishing factors of what constitutes an authentic 1961 stratocaster and what is a fake. I realize this is not the same as seeing the guitar in person but perhaps some one can shed some light and give me their honest opinion of whether or not this guitar is a true 1961 strat. I'm not real familiar with some of the newer relic/reissues and I'm hoping its the real deal. The seller for this strat naturally claims everything is original. Please help me out. Thanks a lot! I have a few more pics of the back of body, inside pickguard and neck if anyone's interested. Thanks again.
